How did a culturally diverse world church emerge in our local neighborhoods and backyards? Rather than an accidental coincidence, diversity in our country, neighborhoods and pews was intentionally brought about through the Spirit’s prompting of historical events. The jubilee of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) reminded us how the Catholic Church opened her doors to the world, while the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965 revealed how the U.S. opened her shores to migrants around the world. Through both ecclesial and legislative reforms, the U.S. became home to many ethnically diverse people and allowed for the creation of a worship space incorporating their cultural backgrounds.

: Throughout history several attempts have been made to discover pierced holes in the curtain of the Christian moral system. One of these efforts was performed by Friedrich Nietzsche. Nietzsche exhorts his readers to expatiate above and beyond any moral system (primarily the Christian moral system which in his book the 'Anti-Christ' he considers to be the most pernicious one) and thereby emancipate themselves from the fetters that these systems emanate. In this book this type of exhortation is challenged along with the accusations that it hosts (consequences to such exhortation are exposed). As a guide to Nietzsche's ideology this book focuses on the main arguments offered by Nietzsche in his book the "Anti-Christ".
