Why are Americans being forced to consider homosexual acts as morally acceptable? Why has the US Supreme Court discovered a constitutional right to same-sex "marriage", which until a decade ago, was unheard of in the history of Western or any other civilization? Where has the "gay rights" movement come from, and how has it so easily conquered America? The answers are in the dynamics of the rationalization of sexual misbehavior. The power of rationalization—the means by which one mentally transforms wrong into right—drives the gay rights movement, gives it its revolutionary character, and makes its advocates indefatigable. The homosexual cause moved naturally from a plea for tolerance to cultural conquest because the security of its rationalization requires universal acceptance. In other words, we all must say that the bad is good. At stake in the rationalization of homosexual behavior is reality itself, which is why it will have consequences that reach far beyond the issue at hand. Already America's major institutions have been transformed—its courts, its schools, its military, its civic institutions, and even its diplomacy. The further institutionalization of homosexuality will mean the triumph of force over reason, thus undermining the very foundations of the American Republic.

"A must-read for every concerned American--and especially for every Christian who weeps at the graveside of his culture." --R.C. Sproul A cataclysmic change has occurred as our culture has shifted toward belief in "Oneism." Every religion and philosophy fits into one of two basic worldviews: "Oneism" asserts that everything is essentially one, while "Twoism" affirms an irreducible distinction between creation and Creator. The Other Worldview exposes the pagan roots of Oneism, traces its spread throughout Western culture, and demonstrates its inability to save. "For bodily holiness and transformed thinking . . . we depend entirely on one amazing thing: the incredibly powerful message of the Gospel to a sinful world, which is the ultimate expression and goal of Twoism. The only hope is in Christ alone."

Virtually every scholar on both sides of the same-sex discussion eventually addresses the account of Sodom found in Genesis 19. However, in recent years, scholars have tended to downplay the importance of this chapter in relation to this debate. This book challenges this trend and seeks to demonstrate how the account of Sodom plays a key role in our understanding of a God-ordained sexual ethic, especially in light of Genesis as Torah--instruction for both ancient Israel and for the Church.

The Founding of the American Republic is being fired upon from all sides today. Some say that the United States was founded on slavery, racism, and white-male privilege, which must be dismantled. Others say it was based on the Enlightenment falsehood of radical autonomy, which has caused the country's moral and social degradation. In this well-researched book, Robert R. Reilly shows that a combination of ideas from Judaism, Greek philosophy, and Christianity inspired the writers of the U.S. Constitution, who rejected both absolute freedom along with absolute rule. He demonstrates that the cause of America's decline is not to be discovered in the Founding principles, but in the rejection of those principles. Reilly traces the lineage of the ideas that made the United States, and its ordered liberty, possible. These concepts were extraordinary when they first burst upon the ancient world: the oneness of God, the goodness and the orderliness of creation, and the need for freedom to be guided by reason. These concepts were further developed by Christian think- ers in the Middle Ages; and while they may seem a long way from the American Founding, Reilly argues that they are, in fact, its bedrock.
