This is the apologetics and intellectual history series every young Christian should understand.

Francis Schaeffer is perhaps the most influential Christian thinker in the last 100 years and in this book and video series he clearly explains the basics of worldview thinking.  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 buy the book separately.) For those wanting to take this class as a half credit in history/philosophy, we have added in additional learning materials including quizzes, research topics, original sources, and essay questions.
