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.

To begin, the narrator was incredible. There were many difficult names and dates involved in this reading, yet she did not stumble.
The book itself is fascinating in its depth of historicity and its summary of what this means for our time.
I intend to listen again after cogitating on this for a while, as there is much to learn.
