Enmity between the church and the world dates from the Fall of man, so God says in Genesis 3.15. Satan's major strategy is the overthrow of the church by the world, through infiltration and contamination. But seldom has this battle reached the proportions of this present hour, when worldliness threatens every believer and church. This book reveals the new 'gospel' of the so-called 'new Calvinism'.
