This book explores the fascist influences that continue to permeate modern culture and thought. Through a skillful combination of historical narrative, cultural criticism and theological analysis, the author demonstrates how fascism, perhaps unknowingly, affects our thinking. The author also offers guidance and hope for those shaken by ideological crosscurrents as he convincingly demonstrates that Christian theology does not stifle the truth.
George Roche writes, “Gene Edward Veith argues forcefully that fascism is alive and well in our secular, postmodern age. He makes an eloquent plea for a return to traditional conservatism–spiritual values, free market economics, and democratic republicanism–as the best defense.” (Publisher)
This new book in the Concordia Scholarship Today Series examines how fascist views permeate modern philosophy, art, movies, and eugenics–decades after the defeat of the Axis powers in World War II. Dealing with a variety of fascist thought–from the intellectuals to the skinheads–Veith shows how the fascist’s focus on self and human will is in direct opposition to the Christian’s faith in a righteous God.
