This chapter suggests that a product of Christianity is the secularism of the modern world and this is indeed a religious phenomenon. The chapter describes that there is a universal sacredness in our life, as Christian humanists continues to establish the great doctrines and use symbols meant to be true of every human being. It cites that just a few people made a glimpse of nihilism and the chapter also states that nihilism represents a great event that made a mark in religion. Also the chapter explains that there is sacredness between Christian art and Christian vocabulary because religious art can now be defined. Through this art, religion became a human function and a mode of human awareness.
