    I am presently reading an interesting book entitled: The Book That Made Your World: How the Bible Created the Soul of Western Civilization by Vishal Mangalwadi. It is published by Thomas Nelson and has a 2011 copyright.

    So far, I have read the first 157 pages of it. I would recommend reading it based on what I have read so far. It is recommended by Ravi Zacharias.

    Here are some of the chapter titles from its title of contents:

    Part I: The Soul of Western Civilization
    chapter 1: The West without its soul: From Bach to Cobain

    Part II: A Personal Pilgrimage

    Part III: The Seeds of Western Civilization
    chapter 5. Humanity: What is the West's Greatest Discovery?
    chapter 6. Rationality: What made the West a thinking civilization?
    chapter 7. Technology: why did monks develop it?

    Part IV: The Millennium's Revolution
    chapter 8. Heroism: How did a defeated Messiah conquer Rome?
    chapter 9. Revolution: What made translators world changers?

    Part V: The Intellectual Revolution
