A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance
By Fred Zaspel
There are few people in this world who grasp and keep the pulse of culture and then explain it all so the rest of us can get it, but that’s what Tinker does for us here. Taking his cue from C.S. Lewis (That Hideous Strength and The Abolition of Man) and Genesis 11 – the Tower of Babel – he exposes contemporary culture through biblical lenses and challenges us to understand accurately the world we live in.
As it has been said, we don’t see worldviews – we see with them, and the worldview of the west today has plausibility structures that exclude Christianity from the get go. Its ideology – cultural Marxism, the new totalitarianism – stifles the Christian agenda, outlaws free speech, and provides a philosophical framework for today’s gender agenda. Cultural Marxism (libertarian Marxism), Critical Theory, the role of Freudian and Darwinian thought – all this and more Tinker lays out plainly and simply and with contemporary insight into today’s self-centered ideology and collective rebellion.
A very helpful little book – a quick but rewarding read. Pastors, if you’re not up to speed on today’s culture shift, this is a great place to start catching up. Highly recommended.
