What Christians Can Learn from Secular Humanism

From its very beginning, secular humanism has, in various ways, promised to save the world. Not only have these promises failed, but no coherent vision has even been offered of what a “saved world” would look like.

In other words, it was the abject failure of secular humanism that gave birth to the cynical postmodern ethos of today.

Why the Division of the Sacred and Secular in Our Culture Is Heretical and Damaging

Henri Nouwen once observed that “Something very deep and mysterious, very holy and sacred, is taking place in our lives right where we are, and the more attentive we become, the more we will begin to see and hear it.
