Rebuilding American Culture
by Anthony Esolen
What do you do when an entire civilization is crumbling around you? You do everything. This is a book about how to get started.
The Left’s culture war threatens America’s foundation and its very civilization, warns Esolen in his brand new book, Out of the Ashes: Rebuilding American Culture. They will tell you that babies in the womb are fetuses, that gender is a social construct, and that the backbone of society is government not the community.
In Out of the Ashes, Esolen outlines his surprisingly simple plan to take back American culture— start at home. Esolen urges us to demand a return to values in our homes, our schools, our churches, and our communities, and to reject political correctness.
“We must become tellers of truth again—and people who are willing to hear truths, especially when it hurts to hear them.”
