In today’s challenging world, we need the clear voice of courage demonstrated by Catholic author Dr. Peter Kreeft. I read his riveting book, How to Win the Culture War: A Christian Battle Plan for a Society in Crisis 3 years ago and have referred to it frequently every since. We should be outraged at what is going on around us, yet we some times seem to be living in a fog. This book will help you see with great clarity that we are in a war…the fight has been raging for decades. The editorial staff strongly recommends this gem from Dr. Kreeft.
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.
