Item description for The Death of Christian Culture by John Senior, Andrew Senior & David Allen White...
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 Kraken Awakens Aug 12, 2003
It is hard to believe this book was published in 1979--it is a throwback to a time when culture meant something other than the latest dress featured on "Sex and the City." This cranky book (really, just a stitched together collection of past articles) has a little bit of everything: (1) a good introduction to the philosophy of the East and its beneficial and baleful influence on Christianity; (2) a sketch of modernism in poetry and literature and the pernicious influence of Keats and Arnold; (3) a description of the intersection of freedom, justice, crime and punishment; (4) the disaster resulting from the loss of a classical education (and how Joyce, as being at least "half educated" has pulled the wool over the eyes of the rest of us who are merely "quarter educated"; and (5) a traditional defense of Catholicism as represented in the writings of Newman and the scholastics. Be warned: This is hard-core catholic writing that has the old take-no-prisoners tang to it. A delight to read. Highly recommended (and short, at a mere 175 pages).
