Reformed Theology Transforming the Culture

Douglas Wilson says,
Our secularist society is on its last legs, and the court prophets for that secularism are in something of a panic. Napoleon once said that he would rather meet ten thousand men, well-generaled, well-disciplined, and well-victualed, than one Calvinist who thought he was doing the will of God. Culturally-engaged Calvinism is a world-shaping force. It is potent. It has built more than one civilization, and is going to do so again. There is more than one seminary professor who likes to write learned monographs about what this particular giant used to do before it went to sleep, but who is extremely wary about any attempts to wake the giant up. That might make a mess, and the secularists might then revoke our library privileges.
