It is popular in our day to speak of "family values." However, while politicians and other newsmakers consistently debate the exact meaning of these values, few acknowledge that virtue is impossible without God, the sole universal standard of right and wrong.
In this book, David F. Wells explores the moral decay of Western society. He examines the ways in which a spiritually bereft morality impacts the culture and demonstrates how it has influenced the church. Reminding us that without a sincere dedication to biblical orthodoxy the church will be unable to offer any remedy to this situation, Dr. Wells gives advice about how our spirituality can regain its moral weight.
"This is the first time that a civilization has existed that, to a significant extent, does not believe in objective right and wrong. We are traveling blind, stripped of our moral compass. And this is true, not only in society, but increasingly in the Church as well."
—David F. Wells
