Eckfeldt, a scientist, argues that, if human beings want peace, prosperity, and happiness they should act as if God exists. For all its faults and limitations, Christianity and its faith in God is the ultimate reason Western civilization, including the sciences practiced by skeptics and atheists, exist. For without the unselfish social conscience that Christianity, and its image of Jesus, has bequeathed to us, we would be in the perpetual state of war described by Thomas Hobbes, the founder of modern political science.
Eckfeldt goes beyond the popular deconstruction and exposes of Christianity by its detractors, and develops a scientific and historical argument that shows the exceptional power of Christianity in the evolution of Western social consciousness, and suggests that a very real spiritual power is at work to explain its extraordinary effect and beneficial uniqueness over time in transforming an entire civilization.>
