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:
Fractured families, rampant divorce, sexual permissiveness and promiscuity, abortion on demand, infanticide, euthanasia, crime and youth violence, the signs of cultural erosion are all around us. In The New Absolutes, William Watkins effectively challenges the apologists for these trends and indices of a cultural breakdown with his own insightful perspectives on what is essentially a culture war. Watkins explains how ten beliefs once held to be absolutely true are being replaced by ten new beliefs considered absolutely true. These new absolutes are personally and socially destructive and if unexposed, unopposed, and unchecked, will lead to cultural collapse. With human interest stories, insightful analysis, and telling facts, Watkins builds a compelling case. He demonstrates the fallacies of the new absolutes and the beliefs about relativism giving them momentum. He also provides practical steps people can take to protect themselves, their families, and their communities from the destructive effects of the new absolutes. The New Absolutes is a book of analysis, hope and answers. Fresh, provocative, clear-headed, comprehensible, practical, The New Absolutes is a book no church library, community, or personal library can afford to be without. -- Midwest Book Review
