The new book from bestselling author, Hanne Nabintu Herland, The Culture War. How the West lost its Greatness is now launched in the US and available in many countries around the globe.
It outlines how the West lost its values, causing its current decline. It is a forceful attack on the extreme-liberal ideologies that have permeated Western culture and weakened its very core.
The Culture War is also a mind-blowing reminder of the massive impact Christianity and its values have had for the development of our civilization.
In an apologetic way, you are presented to the historical and philosophical development which led to the current Western decline, in a strong defence of the rationality of the Christian faith – which is today demonized at our universities and the mainstream media in a way few thought possible just a few years back.Get your copy of The Culture War.

The Culture War brings forth the arguments from leading atheists who voice the need for a higher respect for the Christian ethics that are so despised in the hedonist Western hemisphere. They state that these normative values had a profound ability to motivate individuals to do good, care about the poor and show solidarity with the weak. Precisely the qualities we now lack in our extreme-secular societies.
It is a pity that ultra-rich elites have pushed the West into a new, totalitarian globalist structure, with no respect for its historical values. Our culture is now characterized by strict, elitist media censorship, hedonism, drug abuse, ethnic clashes and racial divide, a destructive feminism and the dramatic break-down of the family. Loneliness and the nihilist feeling of life as meaningless dominate the minds of too many, as the knowledge of spiritualism and its explanation of the meaning of life is fading.
This was not the intended effect that the secularists hoped for when they relegated religion and its spiritual ethics to the private sphere. Something indeed went very wrong.
The book demonstrates how biased and negatively focused our perception of Christianity is today, yet at the same time presenting a sharp critique of Christian selfishness, which is legitimized by theological approaches that say yes to the Christian’s right to “religious egoism” and disengagement in society.
Yet, even in the darkest hour there is hope. This manifesto outlines the remedy for the current malaise and describes the greatness of the early Christian faith and its ethics’ ability to penetrate through political and religious divisions, in order to unite us all – atheists, agnostics and believers in God – in the one quest: To stand shoulder to shoulder as a community, in solidarity, and bring back the old fashioned concept of loving one another.
