That Hideous Strength: A Deeper Look at How the West Was Won

Product Description

Author Melvin Tinker

ISBN 9781783972944

Pages 192

In 2018 EP published the original That Hideous Strength: how the West was lost; the book originated as lecture notes author Melvin Tinker prepared for a conference in Jerusalem that year. That edition deliberately had no footnotes and was as compact as possible to appeal to a wide audience. There have been many requests for a footnoted and expanded edition—here it is, a third larger than the original. The first edition as a ‘primer’ and ‘wakeup call’ to enable Christians especially to try and understand what has been happening in our Western culture for the last few decades due to the influence of what is identified as ‘cultural Marxism’ or ‘Critical Theory’ Many commented that it helped them make connections not seen before; for others, it was an ‘aha moment’, with the light suddenly being switched on as to why much of the Judeo-Christian foundations of the West have been eroded while the Church sleeps.

As well as unpacking in more detail some of the ideas of cultural Marxists and the way their strategies are being worked out in our society, the author has also sought to put more flesh on what the Church’s response might look like by drawing attention to what has been called ‘the Benedict Option’ and developing the concept proposed by Charles Taylor—the ‘social imaginary.’ Another significant addition is an outline of the ideas of classical Marxism which places the current concern for cultural Marxism in its proper historical and philosophical context It also serves to underscore that in many ways the ‘new Marxism’ is a revamping of the ‘old Marxism’ with consequences no less disastrous. This version includes a Postscript on the rise of ‘Black Lives Matter’ following the death of George Floyd. 

There are very few books I buy multiple copies of—this is one of them. That Hideous Strength is an essential primer for any Christian in seeking to understand what is going on in society today. The first edition was outstanding but limited because of its size. This new expanded edition overcomes those limitations, without becoming unwieldy or too heavy. This book should be on every church bookstall, and every Christian’s bookshelf. And now I have to go and buy more of the revised edition! David Robertson, Director of Third Space, a project of the City Bible Forum in Australia, former minister of St Peters Free Church in Dundee, Scotland; theweeflea.com.

Melvin Tinker is the minister of St John’s Newland in Hull, England. He is the author of numerous books, including Mass Destruction: is God guilty of genocide? and That Hideous Strength: how the West was lost.
