I found this book quite disappointing, I thought this book talk more about the changes in our religion and culture. The book talked more on art and its affect on our society. I bought this book to use in homeschooling my high school students. Didn't use for the purpose I had hoped.
I have heard a lot about Schaeffer but never really checked out his material. I must admit now though that Schaeffer hits the proverbial nail on the head! After reading "He Is There and He Is Not Silent" I was hooked. My eyes were definately opened after reading "How Should We Then Live?". It is a great book looking over history at the rise of Western thought and culture and it's eventual decay and destruction. Schaeffer can be wordy, but he is by far the easiest to read of the philosophers that I have read. He explains his terms clearly and writes with the common man in mind. If anyone wants to study on why we are where we are today as a society this is a great book to start with!
Dr. Schaeffer gives an indepth look at how history was shaped by religion through man's search for meaning and significance. Great information for teachers and those who felt they did not get the entire truth in history class. The good Doctor is wordy, but hid vocabulary is not too hard to follow.
If anyone is looking for a book idea, "Scaeffer for Dummies" would be a good one.
