The popular conservative commentator, Ben Shapiro, has a new book explaining the rise and decline of the West. It deserves a review since it provides another great opportunity to explain what the good news is, in the light of what it is not. After covering the eschatological role of non-Christian conservative commentators, I get into the nitty gritty of Shapiro’s analysis of the philosophers and philosophies that contributed to the paganization of Western Culture – the return to darkness, superstition, idols and ignorance.
As one would expect, Shapiro reverts to the “Law” as the solution – specifically, the education of the Law. We have been there and done that! Jesus Christ came to offer a totally new and unexpected solution – The new birth, changing people from the inside out by the miraculous converting power of the Holy Spirit. We need new men not better educated sinners.
