Political leaders come and go, and they may flame for a time on the world stage, like Stalin, Hitler, and Mao, but the ideas of seven men have continued to impact politics, education, economics, and morality. Learn about the 7 Men Who Rule the World from the Grave in this insightful book by Dave Breese.
Breese is an author, lecturer, and evangelist, and he shows why Christians need to understand the ideas of Darwin, Marx, Wellhausen, Dewey, Freud, Keynes, and Kierkegaard for they have impacted not just America, but the world. Calling their ideas “gods of the mind,” Breese shows how they have been accepted to such a degree that they are largely unquestioned and unrefuted, and have become “conventional wisdom.”
Their bodies have long turned to dust, but their ideas live in key sectors of society: Charles Darwin in science, Karl Marx in politics, Julius Wellhausen in theology, John Dewey in education, Sigmund Freud in morality, John Maynard Keynes in economics, and Soren Kierkegaard in philosophy and theology.
Dave Breese deposes these “gods of the mind,” and explains in clear terms their respective ideas—which have penetrated the culture.
