Summary

Summary

Understand where we came from.

Whether you’re an avid student of the Bible or a skeptic of its relevance, The Book That Made Your World will transform your perception of its influence on virtually every facet of Western civilization.

Indian philosopher Vishal Mangalwadi reveals the personal motivation that fueled his own study of the Bible and systematically illustrates how its precepts became the framework for societal structure throughout the last millennium. From politics and science, to academia and technology, the Bible’s sacred copy became the key that unlocked the Western mind.

Through Mangalwadi’s wide-ranging and fascinating investigation, you’ll discover:

  • what triggered the West’s passion for scientific, medical, and technological advancement;
  • how the biblical notion of human dignity informs the West’s social structure and how it intersects with other worldviews;
  • how the Bible created a fertile ground for women to find social and economic empowerment;
  • how the Bible has uniquely equipped the West to cultivate compassion, human rights, prosperity, and strong families;
  • the role of the Bible in the transformation of education; and
  • how the modern literary notion of a hero has been shaped by the Bible’s archetypal protagonist.

Journey with Mangalwadi as he examines the origins of a civilization’s greatness and the misguided beliefs that threaten to unravel its progress. Learn how the Bible transformed the social, political, and religious institutions that have sustained Western culture for the past millennium, and discover how secular corruption endangers the stability and longevity of Western civilization.

“This book is a tract for our times and a must-read for anyone concerned with impacting our culture.” Art Lindsley, author of C. S. Lewis’ Case for Christ
“Mangalwadi recounts history in very broad strokes, always using his cross-cultural perspectives for highlighting the many benefits of biblical principles in shaping civilization.” George Masden, author of Fundamentalism and American Culture
“This is an extremely significant piece of work with huge global implications. Vishal brings a timely message.” Ravi Zacharias, author of Walking from East to West
