The Church of What's Happening Now

Ryan T. Anderson reviews Bad Religion: How We Became a Nation of Heretics, by Ross Douthat, in the Claremont Review of Books.
"Still, Douthat could have argued for orthodoxy by telling us less about good religion's social utility and more about its truth. Bad Religion's hopeful conclusion points in that direction, observing that if orthodox Christianity were going to die at all, then surely the Roman Empire, the armies of Islam, the Renaissance's dissolution of the Middle Ages, the Enlightenment revolutions, or the age of Marx, Darwin, Nietzsche, and Freud would have done it in."
