Why have so many lost confidence and hope in spite of the progress of modern times? Why do even those who deny their despair run ever faster in pursuit of pleasures that burn all thought from their minds? Distinguished Christian thinker Harold O. J. Brown argues in this incisive analysis that our culture suffers such symptoms because we have cut ourselves off from our spiritual roots. We are in the last stages of what the late Russian scholar Pitirim Sorokin called a late, degenerate, sensate culture. Furthermore, this crisis of culture is too opaque to be penetrated by human understanding and efforts alone. Instead we must begin by confessing our need for grace and wisdom from above. Brown shows how, with that confession, Christians may be able to point the way out of cultural despair. They above all people know the power of faith, hope, and love. Hence the author can conclude that, There are some indications that disillusionment with the fading favors of a rotting sensate culture is causing people to become receptive to solutions that are identifiably Christian.
