This title offers an absorbing and provocative look at Christianity's influence on the emergence of Western civilisation. In this profound treatise that analyses the history of Western civilization, Edgar Eckfeldt goes beyond the popular deconstruction and exposes of Christianity by its detractors, and develops a scientific and historical argument that shows the exceptional power of Christianity in the evolution of Western social consciousness, and suggests that a very real power is at work to explain its extraordinary effect and beneficial uniqueness over time in transforming an entire civilization. Eckfeldt, who is also a scientist, argues that, whether or not it is scientifically proven that God exists, if human beings want peace, prosperity, and happiness, it is in the interest of society to act as if He does. For all its faults and limitations, he argues that Christianity and faith in God is the ultimate reason Western civilization, including the sciences practiced by sceptics and atheists, exists.
