Item description for The Restoration of Christian Culture by John Senior, Andrew Senior & Dr David Allen White...
A sequel to "The Death of Christian Culture," this spiritual treatise covers social, cultural, and political topics. It explores the importance of religious knowledge and faith to the health of a culture, provides a historical sketch of the change in cultural and educational standards over the last two centuries, and illustrates how literary and other visual arts either contribute to a culture or conspire to tear it down. Compared to a series of sermons, this analysis explains that there is a continuing extinction of the cultural patrimony of ancient Greece, Rome, medieval Europe, and the early modern period of Western civilization, owing to the pervasive bureaucratization, mechanization, and standardization of increasing materialism.

ProMultis still showing it for $19.95 on their website, but he is charging much more for a like-new copy now.... Anyone know another place to get this?

Awesome book, this is. Regarding the price-gouging going on, for those of you looking to purchase this at a normal price, go online to ProMultis. They have it at its regular retail price!
Here you go... Jan 27, 2004
...everything you need to know about restoring integrity and substance to bland, decadent post modern existence. John Senior's two books "The Death of..." and "The Resurrection of Christian Culture" might be summed up as "Peter Kreeft on steroids." By which I take nothing from the good Dr. Kreeft, but with Senior you get the medicine with very little sugar to help it down. Fierce, unapologetic Catholic thought, written in a style that feels very much like it might have come from the 1890 - 1930 period, but it was in fact written in the 60's and 70's, and is very current and cogent. Hard to find but very worth it, highly recommended, essential reading for those who think that there is something missing in modern culture. If you like Chesterton, get this while you can find a copy. Get two copies, and give one to a very good friend.
Essential Dec 10, 1999
A practical blueprint for reforming one's life, family, and culture. A sample of Senior's wisdom:
"First, negatively, smash the television set. The Catholic Church is not opposed to violence; only to unjust violence; so smash the television set. And, positively, put the time and money you now spend on such entertainment into a piano so that music is restored to your home, common, ordinary Christian music, much of which is very simple to play."
