Book Giveaway: Kevin Swanson's Apostate

After reading Kevin Swanson's new book Apostate: An Expose of the Men Who Dismantled the Christian West I knew this was the next book to give away.

Kevin, as always, does a great job of dealing with world views and how they manifest themselves in
ones lives.  He looks at the lives of a number of men that have shaped our world, many of which Christian Homeschoolers have in their curriculum.  In showing the trajectory of the lives of those he covers we see the outcomes of their beliefs and it is not pretty.

Apostate looks at the lives of men that formed the world views of much of the west such as:

  • Thomas Aquinas
  • Rene Descartes
  • John Locke
  • Jean-Jacques Rousseau
  • Jeremy Bentham
  • Ralph Waldo Emerson
  • Karl Marx
  • Charles Darwin
  • Friedrich Nietzsche
  • John Dewey
  • Jean-Paul Sartre

  • He also looks at the authors that helped to form the world we have today:
  • William Shakespeare
  • Nathaniel Hawthorne
  • Mark Twain
  • Ernest Hemingway
  • John Steinbeck

  • One additional comment:  Once you read the book please put a review up on Amazon.  If you have already read it and have not put up a review please do so as well.  Generations With Vision are trying to get this books into as many hands as possible and the number of reviews on Amazon does a make a difference.
    I will be collecting names until 6PM (EST) on Tuesday (11/19/13).  Here is how you can have multiple entries:
    1. Leave a comment on this blog post.  
    2. Placing a link to the giveaway on your blog and leave a link to your blog post in a comment here. 
    3. Sharing this post on Facebook, or share the post that is already there, and mention here that you have done so.  
    4. Share this giveaway on Goolge+ and then leave a comment here that you have shared it.  
    That makes 4 ways to enter.
    Again, make sure to leave a comment here letting me know the methods you have used to enter.  As a note; liking the Facebook or Goolge+ posts is very much appreciated but it does not count as an entry.

    **This giveaway is limited to the US, due to shipping costs, for the hardback.  However if you do win and are outside the US I will arrange for an E-book version to be given to you**

    Hi Tony, thanks for the Review. My desire was to purchase it at The Worship of God conference but it was sold out (which is great) before i could buy one.
    Just purchased one through Amazon and will leave a review once I read it. Thanks for the reminder.
