Dr. Schaeffer provides a great service to Christians
Dr. Schaeffer offers observations of world history that are not common sense. Weaving philosophical development with corresponding expression of the arts, the author makes the case that there are fundamentallyonly two streams of thought. The first centers on the Creator as the central point. It is the Creator who offers meaning to Man. The second puts Man as the central figure and discloses the logical end to such thinking.
Though not a quick read, this book is valuable for those who seek to establish a foundational basis for a Christian world view.
This book summarizes splendidly why we think the way we do.
This is finally a book which makes it easy to understand today!s culture. It even makes it easy to get an idea of former cultures leading to all the forms of culture we can find around us today. Schaeffer explained things I've always longed to know - reasons, backgrounds, coherence of ideas and history. It's enthralling, not one of those books where knowledge is presented in a way to bore the reader. No, it helps to understand life!
What the world needs to see and hear.
Francis Schaeffer has taken and given a complete synopsis of history, philosophy, theology and art and has shown the progression of humanist thought in every culture through out history. This book, written in the 70's, makes predictions of where our culture was headed at the time and 23 years later he is correct in those predicitions. From his predictions that euthanasia would become an ethical problem of the future like abortion at the time of the writing of the book. This book is clear and concise and shows the direction our culture is headed at present time.
