Interesting readings

I have been reading an anthology of Dr. Francis Schaeffer’s books – the first one contains the three related books “The God Who Is There”, “Escape From Reason”, and “He Is There And He Is Not Silent”. I have yeet to find a better elucidation of the evolution of Western Societies and their values, arts, philosophies, and theologies. Schaeffer traces the birth of the “line of despair” and all its ramifications. I believe it shows that the modern secular existentialistic and humanistic society with all its relativism, leaves no viable basis for the values with which these societies are trying to conduct themselves both individually and corporately, and that they have no foundationi anymore for ethics and morals – rather they are living on the traces of past generations’ foundations that still exist probably to the principle of inertia at work.
