First published in 1978, this hard-hitting exposition discusses the root causes of how and why Christian culture is dying. It investigates literature, culture, history, and religion in an attempt to show that education is increasingly about bureaucratic training and less about scholarly truth. A warning that cultural and artistic treasures of classical and Christian civilizations must be preserved, this provocative analysis diagnoses a cultural and societal malaise facing modern Western societies.

The first of John's duology of masterpieces, Death of Christian Culture, though perhaps on the depressing side, removes the veil from modern thought to critique in an intelligible fashion the ways of thinking that continue to poison the minds of modern man--the bankrupt philosophies that have replaced the philosophically sound Christian ethos that is the true inheritor of the wisdom of the ancient world.
This is a life altering book, as is the followup which I also rate with five stars. I am a Benedictine oblate at the Abbey where some students of Prof. Senior now reside. One is the Abbot, another the Prior. I can certainly understand the impact he had on their lives. Every Christian should read both of the books. They will by unaffected.
Sadly true; tastefully depressing; lamentably accurate diagnose of death - death of the true, good, and beautiful.
