About the book:
In this book, the author dissects and intersects millennia of history in the context of the Judeo-Christian principles that have driven and continue to drive the evolution and revolution of today’s highly-volatile world. Lincoln is a writer who views Biblical history through her lens of second generation Holocaust experience.
In today’s changing world, a paradigm shift in values is needed to guide society in the direction of the greater good. Values That Shape the World encourages us to search through the ancient biblical scriptures and history for the societal values necessary for the future. Written from a historical perspective, an evolutionary pattern of values is developed linked to the pertinent systemic issues of today – economic, geopolitical, and technological. Uncommon biblical perspectives and history are explored.
With society’s many systemic challenges, including the rapid pace of technology and scientific advancements, what future values are needed to shape the direction of these times? What can we learn from societies whose values fail to enable their people? This book inspires one to bring new meaning to ancient precepts, adapted for modern times.
