Sin, like death, is an unassailable fact of life. It is also one of the last great taboos for public debate. In this compelling book, the Henry Fairlie shows that it is possible and necessary to talk about sin in ways that enrich our societies and our personal lives. Fairlie relates these ancient sins to the central issues of contemporary life: liberal vs. conservative politics, discrimination, pornography, abortion, the vistas of modern science, and especially the pop-psychologies that confirm the narcissism of our age.
The late Henry Fairlie, a British-born political journalist and social critic, was a frequent contributor to British and American publications, including The New Republic and The Washington Post. Among his many acclaimed books are The Spoiled Child of the Western World and The Kennedy Promise.
