Publisher's Description

First published in 1978, this hard-hitting exposition discusses the root causes of how and why Christian culture is dying. It investigates literature, culture, history, and religion in an attempt to show that education is increasingly about bureaucratic training and less about scholarly truth. A warning that cultural and artistic treasures of classical and Christian civilizations must be preserved, this provocative analysis diagnoses a cultural and societal malaise facing modern Western societies.

"A beautifully written Jeremiad on the decay of Western intellectual and spiritual culture."  —E. M. Macierowski, PhD, professor, philosophy and classical languages, Benedictine College

"Anyone seriously interested in understanding what underlies the contemporary demise of the West should buy it, read it, and digest the many gems of wisdom it contains."  —Peter A. Redpath, PhD, full professor of philosophy, St. John's University

"Reminds us of Western civilization's treasury of wisdom, its perennial philosophy and great literature."  —Mitchell Kalpakgian, PhD, professor of humanities and the Trivium, Wyoming Catholic College
