God Created Humanism offers a fresh and provocative argument about religion and politics - but one that doesn't fit in the normal boxes. It suggests that the public creed of the West is best described as 'secular humanism', but that we can only really understand, and affirm, secular humanism, if we see that it is rooted in Christianity, and that the two traditions remain inseparable. Otherwise, the West is divided, hobbled by a religious-secular culture war. And now isn't a brilliant time to be hobbled in an ideological civil war. This book makes its timely case through an accessible history of ideas, showing that our secular morality can only find coherence through a new and positive view of its origins.
