The Best Christian book I've yet read.
Any Christian in the modern world, at least in the western hemisphere, is continually challenged over their beliefs, both rationally and culturally. Too often Christians have been seen to lose the various small arguments because they did not recognise the bigger picture. It is for this reason that this book should be read by all those interested in the fields of law, politics and the social sciences. While the theme of the book centres mainly on the United States, the discerning reader will recognise the common patterns of influence on our own country, and western culture as a whole. It supplies the reader with a tool no other book has hitherto done; the intellectual means to develop a comprehensive Christian social and political agenda as an alternative to the secular one. In recognising the fundamentals behind the issues, it undermines the credibility of the secular philosophies in a manner that will galvanise anybody seeking Christian perspectives on the role of the state, the purpose of law, and the way to create a better society. In short, it pieces together the jigsaw of the Christian worldview and shows us what to do with it.
Clear and challenging questions and answers about living hap
This book deserves a wide readership. Chuch Colson went from White House advisor to prison then became a Christian. With hul=mour and clarity he explains why the post-modern attitudes pervade our society and how they are harming our peace with each other and with God. He teaches about worldviews and shows how the Christian worldview has the answers that post-modern man wants, but does not get from the prevailing mind set. Real life stories fix the subject matter firmly in reality. It is an easy to read book with a challenge for each person.
A must for Christians serious about impacting their society.
Charles Colson's book shows that Christianity provides the most rational and persuasive view of who we are, where we are going wrong and how we can put things right. It comprehensively debunks the idols of the new age, the state, consumerism and sex insofar as they are worshipped as sources of truth. It is a challenge to those Christians who have retreated into the ghetto. How Now Shall We Live? equips Christians to fight for a God-centred view across all of Creation.
