    Description

    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.

    How Should We Then Live? has become the benchmark for Christian worldview thinking today. This edition commemorates the 50th anniversary of L'Abri Fellowship, founded by Francis and Edith Schaeffer.

    Want To Be Left Alone? Better Read Schaeffer

    I listened to this just after watching the ten part video series of the same name. This makes a great follow-up to the video series. And even though the videos total five hours of time this book goes into the subject with more depth. Francis Schaeffer, more than any other Christian author in the 20th century properly identifies the basic problem with man and how to fix it. If you have seen the ten part series you will know that Schaeffer is a bit if an anachronism. His dress and manner of speech is from another, simpler, time. Despite personally living almost as a man out of time he has the pulse of our society on his fingertips. In this book you will learn what is really means to try to live according to the principles of Biblical Christianity in this age of declining morality. The last section deals with the pervading malady of mankind today: the persuit of Personal Peace and Affluence. Schaeffer exhorts the faithful to abandon the idea that we should just want to be left alone and accumulate material wealth. This, he says, is the very antithesis of Christianity.

    Kate Reading narrates this book. At first this seemed a bit strange after hearing Francis Schaeffer talk for five hours on the videos but then her voice blended into the background and I was able to listen past her and hear the text itself.

    Schaeffer's classic confronts and challenges

    Where does How Should We Then Live rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is the only audiobook I've listened to in its entirety.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed reviewing several well-known aspect of world history, and learning of many other unfamiliar ones, woven together in a coherent worldview.

    What aspect of Kate Reading’s performance would you have changed?

    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.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    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.

    Perspective-changing book

    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!

    Need the hard copy

    Some books just shouldn't be made into an audio book. This is one such book. Too much depth to follow the narrative in audio format.

    Absolute eye opening!!!

    This book was an absolute master piece. The insights that God has blessed this man with is beyond belief. I will be listening again cause the depth of info was so much that it can not be taken in with one listen. I will never look at history and ideas in the same way that I have.

    Excellent info

    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.

    I wish I had understood ...

    ... what is explained in this book back when it came out over 40 years ago. Every Christian desperately needs to understand these things which explain where we are as western civilization. It is fatal to believe life is all about being happy and having lots of luxury, fatal to freedom and hazardous to individual souls. Yet, that is now the society we live in. It may sound like a hand-printed sign carried by a man in some comic strip, but repent and be saved!

    Splendid overview of what was and could be

    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.

    Convicting words frim a Watchman on the Wall

    This is a crash course in the historical inter-development of philosophy, theology, politics, and econimics from the early recorded history to the author's time (late 20th century), and how the changes impact our world and lives today. As one not well-schooled in many of the disciplines, it was often beyond my ken, but the thrust of it was powerful still. If my to-read stack were not towering, or if I could speed-read, this is a book I would like to read over and over, letting the history, insights, and implications wash over me again and again, so I could begin to grasp it more fully. We need more Watchmen on the wall.

    Christus-fokussierter Blick

    einen umfangreichen Überblick über weste Geschichte! und prophetische!
    bzgl. China ist zu kurz. m.e. seit 1976 ist etwas anderes entstanden.
    Erlösungsplan von Gott seit 20 jhd. fehlt.
