Schaeffer's brilliant analysis of Western civilization from ancient Rome to the Atomic Age examines the breakdown of modern society in philosophy, theology, the arts, and morals. The only viable alternative, he says, is living by the Christian ethic, acceptance of God's revelation, and total affirmation of the Bible's values and meaning. A timeless classic. This edition commemorates the 50th anniversary of L'Abri Fellowship, founded by Francis and Edith Schaeffer. Unabridged. Read by Kate Reading. 8 Hours. 6 CDs.

Review 1 for How Should We Then Live? The Rise and Decline of Western Thought and Culture--CD
Date:May 1, 2008
Having a totally evil and depraved amount of down time in my day due to commuting across the city to work, I was looking about for an audio book to help generate some more righteous travel time. I have found this reading of Shaeffer's excellent book extremely stimulating and insightful, and would recommend it to anyone. His thoughts on many aspects of our culture are so accurate that they haven't dated a minute in the decades since he wrote them, and in fact some of the huge recent events on the world stage, in the light of the author's comments, almost seem to have been inevitable to the thinking mind, and not the shocks they were to some of us whose minds were (in some ways) asleep.
