Last October, our friend Marvin Olasky, editor at WORLD, published chapter 3 of Darrow’s book, Emancipating the World: A Christian Response to Fundamentalist Atheism and Radical Islam.
Now Marvin has returned to the book, publishing chapter 7 with his post, Opening the door to the enemy.
Here’s Marvin’s introduction:
Two months ago we published Chapter 3 of Darrow Miller’s Emancipating the World: A Christian Response to Radical Islam and Fundamentalist Atheism. The chapter provoked a good discussion on the website and elsewhere, so we’re back with one more, Chapter 7, which reports on and analyzes the “pathological self-loathing” that characterizes much of Western civilization’s contemporary intellectual output.
Miller, who heads the Disciple Nations Alliance, asks why many in Europe and America are reluctant to speak about “Islamic terrorists,” why many feminists are silent about Muslim oppression of women, and why we tolerate the intolerant. He also points out some painful truths that lie within the Islamic moral critique of the West: Many in Europe and America are spiraling into a spiritual and moral abyss.
WORLD has recommended some of Miller’s excellent books, especially LifeWork: A Biblical Theology for What You Do Every Day. For more of Miller’s thinking, please see the interview we ran in WORLD in December 2009. Happy New Year, everyone.
Thanks, Marvin, for this welcome publicity!
