As an avid reader of World, I instantly recognized Marvin Olasky's name. I have long enjoyed his balanced and thoughtful columns and articles in World. This book brings together a collection of Mr. Olasky's columns from the past few decades, and it just goes to show that nothing is new under the sun in the midst of huge changes. It's amazing that an article written in 1995 is just as relevant as one written a few months ago, or even last year.
Each article is crafted to make the reader to think and ponder their convictions in light of a Biblical worldview. Some of the articles were nostalgic, in a way that it made me think that we were debating one thing 2 years ago, and now it have progressed to 5 steps down the line.
Overall, a wonderful collection of Marvin Olasky's most memorable columns over the years covering a variety of topics. Great read for fans of World. Concise chapters make for easy navigation and reading. Well worth the read!
