Judeo Christian Values

The great Dennis Prager has been writing the first draft of his new book on line. The first 14 chapters of "The Case for Judeo Christian Values" are available to all on the DennisPrager web site under "Written by Dennis." Please check them out.

For my own benefit and for my bloggies, I have decided to exerpt highlights of the 14 chapters.

The first describes The Epic Battle:

An epic battle taking place in the world over what value system humanity will embrace. There are essentially three competitors: European secularism, American Judeo-Christianity and Islam. In America too, values based on God and the Bible are being replaced by secular values. The result of secularism was predicted by the British thinker G.K. Chesterton: "When people stop believing in God, they don't believe in nothing -- they believe in anything." Chesterton was right. The collapse of Christianity in Europe led to the horrors of Nazism and Communism.

Now, it is time to make the case for Judeo-Christian, specifically biblical, values.
