This is the apologetics and intellectual history series every young Christian should know.
Francis Schaeffer—perhaps the most influential Christian thinker in the last 100 years—clearly explains the basics of worldview thinking in this book and his video series of the same name. Filmed at over 100 locations in eight countries, it is a spectacular presentation of the flow of history, ideas, and cultural analysis from a Christian perspective.
The fact that the series is nearly 50 years old makes it even more valuable: many of his predictions have come true with startling accuracy. This lends great credibility to his Biblical and cultural insight.
The series works best by using the videos and book together. (You will need to access to the video course separately.) For those wanting to take this class as a half credit in history/philosophy, we have added additional learning materials including quizzes, research topics, original sources, and essay questions.
Praise for Schaeffer’s legacy
“This is a modern-day classic, one of Schaeffer’s books that awakened me to how biblical truth affects all of life.”
―Charles Colson, Founder, Prison Fellowship and the Colson Center for Christian Worldview
“There are books that quickly go out of print and there are books for the ages. How Should We Then Live? is one for the ages. Any serious thinker must read it again and again.”
―Cal Thomas, Syndicated Columnist, Host, After Hours, Fox News Channel
“How Should We Then Live? was produced by a genius who cared about the battle of ideas. It’s also the book I still recommend to students for a quick overview of ‘the rise and decline of western thought and culture.’ Schaeffer brilliantly takes readers from ancient times through the Renaissance, Reformation, and Enlightenment, then discusses the breakdown in philosophy and science and moves on to art, music, literature, film, and much else besides.”
―Marvin Olasky, Editor in Chief, WORLD Magazine
“Go to any evangelical Christian gathering . . . and ask twenty people the simple question: ‘What single person has most affected your thinking and your worldview?’ If Francis Schaeffer doesn’t lead the list of answers, and probably by a significant margin, I’d ask for a recount.”
―Joel Belz, Founder, WORLD magazine
