“One of the best books I have read on our culturalcontortions.”—Thomas Ellis, New Oxford Review

Why we live in a cultural-moral sewer

How to cope (as best you can), and what the future could hold

Few writers today can match Peter Kreeft for sound, accessible,Catholic prose. In this valuable book, Peter Kreeft not onlydiagnoses the illnesses of today’s culture. With great clarity heprovides the often uncomfortable cure for Catholics. The only cure:one that ensures our salvation and builds a new Christian world.

Gems from Kreeft whose books have sold in the hundreds of thousands:

“Sexual pigginess and economic pigginess are natural twins. For lustand greed are almost interchangeable words. In fact, America does notknow the difference between sex and money. It treats sex like moneybecause it treats sex as a medium of exchange, and it treats money likesex because it expects its money to get pregnant and reproduce.”

“The theme of spiritual warfare is never absent in Scripture andnever absent in the life and writings of a single canonized saint. Butit is never present in the religious education of my ‘Catholic’ collegestudents. Whenever I speak of it, they are stunned and silent, as ifthey have suddenly entered another world.”

“The most obvious difference between Christianity and‘spirituality’ is the fact that Christianity includes commandments,while ‘spirituality’ includes only values....‘Spirituality’ has seepedinto many churches and private lives like gas from a leak in anunderground pipe.”

“‘Spiritual’ people do not believe in Christianity (although most ofthem think they are Christians), nor do they believe in atheism ormaterialism; they believe in ‘spirituality.’ They think religion—anyreligion—is a good thing not because it istrue but because it fosters morality. (Butthey tend to reduce morality to compassionor ‘tolerance’—the virtue Chesterton saidis all that remains after a man has lost allhis principles.)”

“Saints are not nice. They are embroiled incontroversy, necessarily, always. This isbecause saints are as devoted to truth asthey are to love; they will not be falseprophets who give the people what theywant instead of what they need.”

“How easy it is to kill, how hard to heal! How easily Cain killed Abel!How hard was Cain’s rock; how soft was Abel’s head! How weak anddefenseless is the unborn baby against the abortionist’s vacuum tubesand bone crushers! And how weak is the conscience of its parents.”

“At the end of the nineteenth century [Pope Leo XIII] received avision of the coming twentieth century that history has provedterrifyingly true. He saw Satan, at the beginning of time, allowedone century in which to do his worst work, and Satan chose theTwentieth....When he revived, [Pope Leo] composed a prayer forthe Catholic Church to use throughout this century.”
