As one of the foremost evangelical thinkers of the 20th century, Francis Schaeffer long pondered the fate of declining Western culture. In this brilliant book, he analyzed the reasons for modern society's state of affairs and presented the only viable alternative: living by the Christian ethic, acceptance of God's revelation, and total affirmation of the Bible's morals, values, and meaning.

What other book might you compare How Should We Then Live to and why?

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.

Any additional comments?

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!
