Product Description


Although written thirty years ago, this well-illustrated book by Francis Schaeffer has stood the test of time. Dr. Schaeffer examines the reasons for the state of Western culture. He evaluates Western history and culture from ancient Rome to the 1970s and presents the Christian ethic as the only viable alternative to today’s decline. This book has become the benchmark for Christian worldview thinking today. 

Modern technology has certainly provided the ability to quickly find facts on just about any subject. What is the population density of Bangladesh? A quick search using Google reveals the answer of 2,750 people per square mile. Too often education is reduced to facts rather than careful analysis. How Should We Then Live is a much-needed survey of the rise and decline of Western thought and culture. Thankfully Christian students often are able to study history from the perspective of God’s Word. Schaeffer in this book deals with important areas related to art and culture that often are not presented to Christian students. Parents will especially benefit by this book and will be able to help their own children then properly analyze books, movies, and other aspects of culture.

Schaeffer closes the book by summarizing its purpose: “This book is written in the hope that this generation may turn from that greatest of wickedness, the placing of the created thing in the place of the Creator, and that this generation may get its feet out of the paths of death and may live.”
