"Christianity is the most enduring and influential legacy of the ancient world, and its emergence is the single most transformative development in Western history. [This book] explores what it was that made Christianity so revolutionary and why, in a West that has become increasingly doubtful of religion's claims, so many of its instincts remain irredeemably Christian. Today, the West remains utterly saturated by Christian assumptions. Our morals and ethics are not universal. Instead, they are the fruits of a very distinctive civilization. Concepts such as secularism, liberalism, science, and homosexuality are deeply rooted in a Christian seedbed. From Babylon to the Beatles, Saint Michael to #MeToo, Dominion tells the story of how Christianity transformed the world" -- inside front jacket flap.
