Never before has humanity existed in a culture that rejects belief in a transcendent power. Previous cultures–even when rent by bitter disagreements–shared a common belief that a greater force stood above the material realm. But when one side acknowledges an ultimate source of truth while the other side denies it, debate is dead, and mutual understanding is impossible. So claims Fr. Dwight Longenecker in his most captivating book yet. Longenecker shows how, like the mythical serpentine beast with myriad writhing and venomous heads, atheism manifests itself today through sixteen “isms” that cloak the action of the antichrist, who seethes with pure hatred of God and His truth. This book brilliantly catalogs the alluring and seductive deceptions of each ism to help you see how they are corroding the very foundations of Western civilization and entrapping countless faithful Christians. Best of all, the book lays out a plan of action that you and your friends can follow to gain the grace needed to behead Hydra–now–through the light of our lives. Paper.
