'Western Values versus the Gospels' provides you with the most thorough analysis ever made of the values Jesus himself endorses in the Gospels. If you thought you knew what it was that Jesus valued then this book will be a revelation to you. You will be startled to discover that Jesus is not the champion of peace and goodwill to all he is portrayed as being but is, in fact, hostile to most of the values we cherish in the West today This book shows that Western values are not an evolution of the values that Jesus endorses but a radical rejection of them. He is opposed to democracy, tolerance, and respect for difference. He does not see each person as valuable in their own right. Like Mohammed, he only values mercy, forgiveness, freedom and peace for those who share his beliefs about God. If you want to understand what Jesus really valued and whether these values are ones we should share, then this is the book for you.
