The adoption of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in 1982 amounted to a wholesale change in Canada’s constitutional and legal foundation. There is no such thing as neutrality. With the Charter, Christianity was cast aside and secular humanism became the ultimate basis of Canada’s constitution.
To look back on William Gairdner’s book since its original publication in 1992, is to see clearly that his insights concerning the future of the family in Western civilization have been largely borne out. All those concerned with the direction of modern society and the world they are leaving for the next generation will benefit from the deep experience and penetrating insights here.
Andrew Sandlin demonstrates that the bedrock assumptions of the most pernicious political vision of our time are actually religious beliefs: an apostasy from the God of the Bible. Defeating that political vision cannot be accomplished without overturning its apostate religious assumptions and recalling people to biblical faithfulness and our covenant-keeping God.
Human beings are God’s stewards, and we are tasked with caring for His world for His glory. This booklet outlines a distinctly Christian view of creation care that preserves the Creator-creation distinction, takes seriously the issues of sin and redemption, and recalls Christians to the godly task of environmental stewardship.
William Gairdner challenges citizens to reconsider standard interpretations of democracy and to think more deeply about the nature, subtlety, and complexity of our actual situation. It offers a refreshing understanding of the proper nature of a free and civil society.

The Mission of God is a clarion call for Christians and God's church to awaken and recover a full-orbed gospel and comprehensive faith that recognizes and applies the salvation-victory and lordship of Jesus Christ to all creation: from the family, to education, evangelism, law, church, state and every other sphere.
In this collection of lectures given at the 2013 truthXchange Think Tank, the authors analyze a variety of current utopian visions that inspire false hopes in today's culture, as well as presenting the true hopes God offers humanity. By showing the emptiness of human utopias and the glorious truth that only God's final "eu-topia" offers, these articles will equip Christians to understand false hopes and to live out the truth of the sure hope Christ offers.
The Gospel of the Kingdom concerns our culture, which is quite essentially our state of being. This Gospel creates a new state of being by regeneration. Personal regneration is then followed by cultural regeneration, as the Gospel, like the mustard seed, grows and creates a society which spreads to impact all those around it as leaven transforms the whole loaf. Wherever God's children are faithful in preaching the gospel and applying God's truth to every area of life, cultures are re-created. We are God's new humanity in Jesus Christ, and wherever God's people are, by the power and mighty working of his Spirit, the culture of Christ inescapably flourishes around them.
Full of biblical and theological insights, and written with an evangelistic heart, this book serves to nourish the faithful, stimulate good arguments for the seeker and build a strong rational basis for the causative relation between faith and reason, the former being the presupposition of the latter. With rigor and relevance, it enables readers to grasp the signs of divine transcendence, and to be apprehended by the beauty of Christ.
The health and vitality of the family as God's most basic institution is critical to the life, strength, and influence of the church. As Christians unite around and defend one of scripture's most basic institutions, God's kingdom is advanced, non-believing strongholds are dismantled, and multi-generational blessings, which are covenantally promised in the fifth commandment, are reclaimed.
