How to Win the Culture War: A Christian Battle Plan for a Society in Crisis

Overview

The battle lines have been drawn.

Many Christians have fallen into the trap of proclaiming "Peace! Peace!" when there is no peace. Hiding their eyes from the pressing issues of the day, they believe that resistance to the prevailing culture is useless. At the same time, other Christians have been too quick to declare war, mistaking battlefield casualties as enemies rather than victims.

Overview

The battle lines have been drawn.

Many Christians have fallen into the trap of proclaiming "Peace! Peace!" when there is no peace. Hiding their eyes from the pressing issues of the day, they believe that resistance to the prevailing culture is useless. At the same time, other Christians have been too quick to declare war, mistaking battlefield casualties as enemies rather than victims.

In How to Win the Culture War Peter Kreeft issues a rousing call to arms. Christians must understand the true nature of the culture war--a war between the culture of life and the culture of death. Kreeft identifies the real enemies facing the church today and maps out key battlefields. He then issues a strategy for engagement and equips Christians with the weapons needed for a successful campaign.

Above all, Kreeft assures us that the war can be won--in fact, it will be won. For those who hope in Christ, victory is assured, because good triumphs over evil and life conquers death. Love never gives up. Neither must we.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
We're at war and we don't even know it, claims Kreeft, a philosophy professor at Boston College and a popular Christian writer. He describes the state of modern society and calls Christians back to a more biblical view of the world, pointing to the reality of evil spiritual beings, the existence of sin and the importance of recognizing the results of cultural pressure. He also has a fascinating argument concerning the central role of sexuality in the current "culture wars." Unfortunately, many readers will be driven off by Kreeft's snide, caustic tone. For example, he describes those who embrace the New Age movement as people "who always seemed to be flighty, flaky and female, at least in spirit." Moreover, while Kreeft frequently refers very positively to ecumenism, his perspective is much more Roman Catholic than reflective of the wider Christian audience he seeks to reach. Many readers will not agree that, for example, contraception should be categorized together with "sodomy, fornication and prostitution" as "clear and obvious sins." Kreeft's venture into the "Screwtape" idiom of C.S. Lewis makes for very interesting reading, though here, again, the assumption that the Protestant Reformation was a particularly successful attack by Satan will jar many. Kreeft ends the book with a call to sainthood, exhorting Christians to genuinely live out the goodness made available to them by the grace of God, and a stirring affirmation that goodness will indeed triumph over evil.

    Excellent book about the truth we live

    I have read this book three times, given it away and recommended it to others. Using his unique and effective dry humor, Kreeft is brilliant in putting the truth in your face. He efficiently delivers his message of what is wrong with our culture, what is needed to fix what is broken and the downhill slide we will continue to face if we don't wake up and change our ways.
