The first edition of this book, without footnotes and deliberately kept as short as possible, has been widely read and praised. This expanded edition is updated—two years have passed since the first edition—and has additional material and footnotes, including a postscript that includes commentary on Black Lives Matter.
David Robertson, Director of Third Space in Australia and widely-read blogger (the wee flea.com) says:
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!
Fred G. Zaspel, Pastor, Reformed Baptist Church, Franconia, PA, Adjunct Professor of Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary says:
Our culture has undergone a dramatic shift in recent generations, and Christians need to see it for what it is. If you suspect a sinister underlying agenda, Melvin Tinker agrees and wants to expose it for you. Informed, insightful, and yet easily accessible, this is an important and most helpful book that will sharpen your understanding of the world you live in. I hope it will receive wide attention!
Melvin Tinker is Vicar of St John Newland, Hull, England, where he has served since 1994. He is the author of numerous books and articles.
