Follower of Christ, husband of one, father to four, student of philosophy, fan of Kentucky Wildcat basketball... that's all you need to know.
It is the only audiobook I've listened to in its entirety.
I enjoyed reviewing several well-known aspect of world history, and learning of many other unfamiliar ones, woven together in a coherent worldview.
I don't disapprove of her performance at all... this was my first audiobook and it was a bit of a challenge to engage the male author while hearing his words in a female voice. I'm not sure I ever made the connection completely.
Schaeffer's indictment of Christians who have held to thoroughly orthodox views in most areas while ignoring Scriptural teaching on race and compassionate use of wealth.
I had read Total Truth before, which includes many references to Francis Schaeffer. My daughter had some coursework in High School which included Schaeffer, so I was interested in hearing some of his original work. Total Truth is a great book as well.
This was a fantastic book! Does a great job at showing the big picture history of different worldviews, and helped me to see much better how they show up in our world today. I'm listening to it for a second time now!
Schaeffer's ability to trace the philosophy of man throughout history and then accurately predict what is coming in the future while writing b/f Reagan is unparalleled. Furthermore, he laces in the Christians response to many of the different philosophies of man - but I wish he did this more as well as succinctly described his view of Christian truth in one chapter. regardless, everyone should read this book.
Schaeffer clearly reveals the impact of worldview on culture and history. Ideas have consequences. It makes me wonder. Where is our thoughts leading us today?
Probably would be a good text to have as there is much historical info. Interesting and makes me want to read more of Francis Schaffer work.
