Those who claim tolerance and decry moral absolutes are the very ones imposing on society -

Our society's problems are no longer "out there" somewhere. They affect our everyday work and family life and how we raise our children. Under the guise of tolerance, relativism, and a professed attitude of "live and let live," new ideas are being advanced of what is true and right for all of us: Family is any grouping of two or more people. Religion should be banned from public life. Any sexual activity between consenting parties is moral. Politically incorrect viewpoints should be silenced.

Our culture's consensus of what is true and right is shifting not because we as a society have become tolerant of all views and lifestyles, but because we are trading what we once believed to be true for new beliefs. Ten beliefs once held to be absolutely true are being trampled by ten new beliefs the personally and socially destructive new absolutes.

If the new absolutes are not exposed and opposed they will lead to cultural collapse.

"William D. Watkins has exposed the hypocrisy of the relativists and in so doing has made a major contribution to the critical struggle of our age. What is right? What is wrong? What is good? What is true? Those who claim not to know the answers to these big questions invariably substitute their own absolutes for the ones they have abandoned."

Dr. Michael Jones, Editor, Culture Wars, Author, Degenerate Moderns

About the Author:
Bill Watkins makes you think. More to the point, he challenges you to think. William D. Watkins' specialty is turning assumptions upside down and provoking analysis.

Lecturer and teacher, philosopher and theologian, author and musician, Watkins is an ordained minister in the evangelical protestant tradition, and holds a B. A. in Philosophy from California State University at Fresno, and a Masters in Systematic Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary. Previously he was the director of Educational Resources for Insight for Living.

"I read philosophy and theology books like other people read comic books&quickly and easily," Watkins says. "But on the other hand, I write very much like I talk or teach. I take difficult material and make it accessible and interesting to readers."

Currently Watkins is the director of publications of the American Center for Law and Justice, a public interest law firm and educational organization. He is the vice president of publishing for the Liberty, Life and Family Institute, a cultural think tank, and he is founding editor of Liberty, Life, and Family, a journal of interdisciplinary concerns. Watkins also serves as an editorial advisor for Culture Wars, a journal of cultural commentary on contemporary issues. Previously, he was the director of educational resources for Insight for Living.

A prolific writer, he is the author of numerous books, including In Defense of Life, coauthored with Keith A. Fournier, and Worlds Apart: A Handbook on World Views, written with Norman L. Geisler. He has written numerous essays and articles appearing in such diverse publications as Christianity Today, Themelios, Trinity Journal, Law & Justice, Insights, Cornerstone, Christian Research Journal, and Moody Magazine.

When he is not writing, speaking, or teaching, Watkins spends most of his time with his wife, Pamela, and their five children, ages fifteen to twenty-three. He enjoys taking walks, playing with the family dog, Steinbeck, or tinkering around in their yard or gardens. He is also an avid fan of the arts enjoying movies, concerts, and plays. All his hobbies take backseat, however, to his first love&readingreadingreadingand more reading. He lives with his family in Tennessee.

Review:
Our society's problems are no longer "out there" somewhere. They affect our everyday work and family life and how we raise our children. Under the guise of tolerance, relativism, and a professed attitude of "live and let live", new ideas are being advanced of what is true and right for all of us. Morally dangerous ideas such as "Family is any grouping of tow or more people. " "Religion should be banned from public life. " "Any sexual activity between consenting parties is moral. " "Politically incorrect viewpoints should be silenced. " Our culture's consensus of what is true and right is shifting. Not because we as a society have become tolerant of all views and lifestyles, but because we are trading what we once believed to be true for new beliefs. Ten beliefs once held to be absolutely true are being trampled by ten new beliefs -- the personally and socially destructive new absolutes. If the new absolutes are not exposed and opposed, they will lead to cultural collapse and debilitating decadence. The New Absolutes is a clarion warning, a voice crying in the wilderness, to be ignored at our individual and collective peril. -- Midwest Book Review
