Education is not the only sphere of public life that has been affected by moral relativism
Part 4. Relativism and Public Policy. Education is not the only sphere of public life that has been affected by moral relativism. In this chapter we turn to the sphere of law and especially to how relativism has allowed our public culture and the courts to dismiss cavalierly those views that do not assume it.

Francis J. Beckwith, Gregory Koukl. If you don't read another book, you must read this one. Not only do the authors deal with the self-contradicting nature of a relativistic worldview, but they then show relativism and Christianity. Пользовательский отзыв - Jim - Christianbook. I think that this book shows the foolishness of relativism and why the newly adopted American world view just cannot work.
RELATIVISM: FEET FIRMLY PLANTED IN MID-AIR Francis J. Beckwith and Gregory Koukl Baker Books, 1998, 189 pgs. Part of the fun of studying philosophy is that it is a very difficult, technical subject. Like Richard Neuhaus and his First Things associates, Beckwith and Koukl take on Romer v. Evans, the Supreme Court decision that overturned a Colorado constitutional amendment banning the inclusion of homosexuals within antidiscrimination laws. They point out the relativist basis of the Court's decision. Beckwith is Professor of Philosophy & Church-State Studies at Baylor University, where he also serves as Associate Director of the Graduate Program in Philosophy and Co-Director of the Program on Philosophical Studies of Religion in Baylor’s Institute for Studies of Religion (ISR).
Writing from years of experience in defending Christian values, Beckwith and Koukl offer a critique of moral relativism.
Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air. Francis J. Beckwith and Gregory Koukl
Feet Firmly Planted in Mid-Air. Beckwith and Gregory Koukl. Published by Baker Books. a division of Baker Publishing Group. It is in this climate of contradiction, inconsistency, and even coercion that Gregory Koukl and I address moral relativism, the unofficial creed of much of American culture, especially in the areas of education, law, and public policy. We write not merely to critique, but to equip all those who seek the truth in an age of confusion.
The book is worthy of Kreeft!
