Publisher's Description

A sequel to The Death of Christian Culture, this spiritual treatise covers social, cultural, and political topics. It explores the importance of religious knowledge and faith to the health of a culture, provides a historical sketch of the change in cultural and educational standards over the last two centuries, and illustrates how literary and other visual arts either contribute to a culture or conspire to tear it down. Compared to a series of sermons, this analysis explains that there is a continuing extinction of the cultural patrimony of ancient Greece, Rome, medieval Europe, and the early modern period of Western civilization, owing to the pervasive bureaucratization, mechanization, and standardization of increasing materialism.

Editorial Reviews

"In death as he was in life, John Senior is ever the 'teacher of souls.' In The Restoration of Christian Culture, he has left us a treasury of truth."  —Robert K. Carlson, PhD, academic dean, Wyoming Catholic College

"I once referred to my teacher, Mr. Senior, as 'the Socrates of Kansas.' I would say now that he was the Catholic Socrates of the 20th century."  —James S. Taylor, PhD, author, Poetic Knowledge: The Recovery of Education

"Direct, wise, and rooted deeply in the classics of the Western tradition, Senior offered a Christian humanist critique of the modern world without the slightest measure of trepidation."  —Bradley J. Birzer, PhD, Russell Amos Kirk Chair of History, Hillsdale College, and author, Sanctifying the World and J.R.R. Tolkien's Sanctifying Myth

"The republication and editing of these volumes will solidify, and I do not say this lightly, Dr. Senior will take his proper place in history as a true prophet."  —Reverend C.J. McCloskey III, research fellow, Faith and Reason Institute, Washington, DC

"Anyone interested in the future of our troubled society has to consider the truth of Senior's central ideas."  —Robert F. Gotcher, PhD, full professor of philosophy, St. John's University

"Next to Senior, every other combatant in the present culture war for the soul of the West pales like a Lilliputian."  —Peter A. Redpath, PhD, professor of philosophy, St. John's University

"A timeless and timely prescription for regaining our sanity, both individually and as a civilization."  —James Bemis, Latin Mass Magazine

"A thought-provoking proposal for a way out of today's cultural crisis."  —Andrew V. Abela, Ph.D., professor, department of business and economics, The Catholic University of America
