Christianity is more than a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is also a worldview that not only answers life's basic questions—Where did we come from, and who are we? What has gone wrong with the world? What can we do to fix it?—but also shows us how we should live as a result of those answers. How Now Shall We Live? gives Christians the understanding, the confidence, and the tools to confront the world's bankrupt worldviews and to restore and redeem every aspect of contemporary culture: family, education, ethics, work, law, politics, science, art, music. This book will change every Christian who reads it. It will change the church in the new millennium.

Review: How Now Shall We Live?

User Review  - Debs Taylor - Goodreads

This has definitely affected the way I "read" everything, and my own perspective of worldview. However, I took umbrage at the section on education. There were other parts that I could not accept wholesale either, but a great read to get you thinking about your own framework for life. Read full review
