Other civilizations were so different. During ancient times, heroism was defined by the power to conquer and rule. In medieval times, physical strength and the skill to use weapons became the criterion for heroism. Eastern religions "looked for bliss within their consciousness" and tried to shut out the world by mantras, meditation, and silence. Although some non-Western civilizations started out ahead in mathematics, in certain inventions, and in medicine, the lack of a belief that man was created in God's image left them way behind, and the West surged ahead. Christian truths led to success in the West and progress in science and inventions. This author, Vishal Mangalwadi, believes that rejection of the Bible and of biblical principles is causing the decline of America and Western civilization. The name of this book is The Book that Made Your World.
