Publisher's Description

2000 Gold Medallion Award winner!
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.

Publisher's Weekly

International prison ministry leader Colson, most famous for his role in the Watergate scandal and his subsequent conversion to Christianity, has co-written with Pearcey what he believes to be the most important book of his career. Picking up where the late American theologian Francis Schaeffer's book and film series How Then Shall We Live? left off, Colson attempts to explain why American culture has become "post-Christian" and what must be done to "rebuild it with a biblical worldview." He believes that Christian salvation is not just personal but "cosmological," redeeming all of creation. Colson's work is a mixed bag. When he outlines his theology, shares personal stories or explains the various Supreme Court cases that touch upon religion's role in American life, he is thoughtful and articulate, yet the work suffers from a narrow perspective and an overdependence on the opinions of a few others, especially Schaeffer. As the author of a book that ostensibly engages recent developments in science, art and philosophy from a Christian point of view, Colson too easily dismisses opposing views without expressing a full understanding of them (Stephen Hawking's time theories amount to "little more than fantasy," for example). Such an approach to humanist ideas makes this a sermon strictly for the evangelical choir, although Colson intends the book to inspire debate in the wider culture and Tyndale is launching a $250,000 marketing campaign to sell it.

    I've read this book in electronic format, but had to have a hardcopy for further research and study. Will probably purchase as a gift for some Christian friends!

    Excellent summary of how a Christian should view the world and live out their faith. This should be mandatory reading for all people who claim to be Christians.

    This is one of the best books I've ever read regarding Christians and culture. I believe that some who posted the bad ratings only "thumbed through" this book. I do disagree with Colson's suggestions of uniting with the Catholic church in the cultural war, but it doesn't take away from the sound teaching it offers. Christians are to live in society as followers of Christ. This book just assists in explaining the best way to do it in today's world. I've past this book on to several people, and now...years later, I'm reading it again.

    Excellent review of the philosopy that shapes the way men think. Strong support for the Christian World View. Compelling stories and biographies of people created by God that Strive for His redemption in and of a World that seeks to go its own way.
