Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This volume contains THE three books EVERY person should read. These books literally changed my life! Schaeffer, more philosopher-historian than Biblical exegete, looks at art, theology, music, literature, and philosophy in different ages and traces the movement of their thought-patterns and idealogies through time to show how they influenced each other and lead to today and what we think and how we think now. After reading these books, you will understand not only what the world-view and messages in your culture and world are, but why they say what they say. With this and an understanding of epistemology, you will then be empowered to critically examine and break free from the prison of your culture and world.
