Here is the definitive case against big government and the secular worldview that nurtures it. Uncivil Society explains how the biblical worldview--once so essential in the Western world--placed clear restrictions on government authority. But with the Western world's rejection of biblical truth, individual rights once considered "unalienable" have become easily alienable, and all constraints on government authority have dissolved. Even in America, big government is on the march against the God-given dignity of the individual, the sanctity of life, biblical marriage, and more. In short, big government is becoming the highest expression of mankind's desire to overrule the Bible and to become "like God." Uncivil Society makes the case that only basic biblical princples can sustain a free and pluralistic society. Whether you are a committed evangelical Christian, or simply a traditionally-minded patriotic American, Uncivil Society will help you understand what has gone wrong in America, and how the Bible says we should respond.

As governments grow more and more hostile to biblical truth, Christians need to know how to respond in both thought and practice. This book provides believers with a biblical framework for viewing God, government,and politics. It describes the origins and purposes of government and shows how those purposes are being twisted and distorted in today’s society. Uncivil Society helps confused and frustrated Christians understand their duties to a hostile government and their proper role as Christian citizens.About the Author:
