First published in 1988, this volume was originally published, according to the authors, thanks to a ‘conscious call’. They were ‘fully persuaded that the honor of Christ and the very life of His church are alike endangered by the doubting spirit now brooding over the educational institutions of America.’ The book contains chapters on the prominence of scepticism in schools; the theory of evolution and false theology; and the sacred scriptures.
