The Arrogance of Ignorance is a work of non-fiction focusing on Christian themes and cultural societal issues and was penned by author Heidi Stampley. Subtitled “Radical solutions to the things that hold you back”, the work encourages readers to explore the fall of current society and the dumbing down of the world around them in a critique of topics ranging from reality TV and the nature of fame through to social media, marriage, and relationships. Written with a strong perspective of Christian principles and getting back to God, the work also encourages us to look within and discuss what is actually important in life and get back on track with that.

Author Heidi Stampley has crafted a comprehensive Christian guidebook that is sure to make many readers keenly aware of the pitfalls of modern life. The narrative skill of the work makes it feel as though you could be putting the world to rights with a friend, and I’m certain that like-minded readers will find themselves nodding along in agreement as Stampley takes on the vapid, show-off and empty parts of our culture which so many people uphold as the ideal. I liked the chapter structure and I felt that the chosen topics flowed well from one to the next and built up the overall viewpoint, which is one of getting back to basics and things which really matter to our hearts, minds, and souls. Overall, I would certainly recommend The Arrogance of Ignorance to Christian readers wondering what on earth has happened to the world these days.

The Arrogance Of Innocence by Heidi Stampley addresses the author's concern over what is currently happening to the world and her perception of it as an innocent bystander would prove beneficial to many readers out there. The intention of the book is to bring to light the truth and help all those who are stuck in the darkness to emerge from their arrogant ignorance. The ancient proverb 'Ignorance is bliss' often reveals how many times no one wants to know better because if they did there would definitely be a better way to behave or live. Arrogance is the sanctuary of ignorance and the book will make readers understand that knowledge coupled with humility is real power, and arrogance will only give rise to the decay of the human spirit.

The saga of arrogance is linked even to the greatest of athletes and the book throws light on how these professional athletes are eaten up by their arrogance and lost their love, life, and sanity because of it. Heidi Stampley also covers the various strata of society where arrogance and ignorance manifest and how there is a desire for everyone to rise. Though written from a Christian perspective, the insights are encouraging and inspiring and tackle the crisis that exists in American society. The author warns readers that the bliss that comes with ignorance should not be at the cost of health and dignity. The death of culture in recent times is also discussed and how important it is to have a turnaround using a spiritual application. The Arrogance Of Innocence is a good way for readers to examine their personal beliefs, feelings, and thoughts, and address their ignorance and arrogance. The approach to the topic using a Christian perspective gives it a spiritual vibe and the necessity to make the future good and positive will always be there in the minds of readers.

The Arrogance of Ignorance by Heidi Stampley is a must-read for every Christian looking for solutions in today's chaotic cultural climate. Most people would agree with Stampley that arrogance is a turnoff, but some don't recognize it when it's right in front of them, or if they're exhibiting it themselves. What is arrogance? The author, an accomplished songwriter and entrepreneur, defines what arrogance can mean in today's culture: Beauty, fame, wealth, popularity, promiscuity, social media status. But do these things lead to true happiness, or leave you with an emptiness that can't be filled? Stampley challenges you to find true meaning in your life through Christ, and your real purpose for being on this planet. Through Christian values, today's cultural chaos can be fuel to the fire, or a wake-up call to spiritual growth and happiness. What it comes down to is this: choose this day who you will serve.

While at first glance this book can be taken as a little preachy and hard-hitting, the author uses this approach to drive home her points to today's sometimes disconnected, self-absorbed cynical audience. She comes across strongly but wants to bring you back to softness, humility, and love. She shows that morality doesn't have to be a dirty word, and the cultural revolution should start by looking in the mirror. If you're a Christian who has left Christ in favor of whatever today's glitz and glam has to offer, then this book can help you return to Him. If you're a person who's never thought that you needed a Savior, then The Arrogance of Ignorance by Heidi Stampley is a non-judgmental book that can help light your pathway to purpose and happiness.
