2000 Gold Medallion Award winner! Christianity is more than a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is also a worldview that not only answers life's basic questions-Where did we come from, and who are we? What has gone wrong with the world? What can we do to fix it?-but also shows us how we should live as a result of those answers. How Now Shall We Live? gives Christians the understanding, the confidence, and the tools to confront the world's bankrupt worldviews and to restore and redeem every aspect of contemporary culture: family, education, ethics, work, law, politics, science, art, music. This book will change every Christian who reads it. It will change the church in the new millennium.

answers in a world of opposing worldviews. Each section is introduced by a story that illustrates and presents the practical application of what will be discussed. Nancy Pearcey, who was influenced by her time spent with the Philosopher-Theologian, Francis Sheaffer, provides the philosophical--intellectual underpinnings of the book while Colson provides knowledge of culture, theology, intellectual depth and a wealth of experience. Well written, interesting book that is easy to follow yet challenging in its thought.

This is a great book. It helped me get started in exploring how my Christian conviction applied to much more than just "religion".
