 Our Description


American society without Christ? It’s here. But - can the glory of Christian culture be revived?


Christian culture is dead, asserted John Senior, the late - and noted - Humanities Professor at the University of Kansas. But who killed it? And why? In his classic work, now back in print after several years, Dr. Senior summons the guilty to justice. He details how Western elites came to reject the Christian idea of an orderly universe created by God. Modern man has lost his faith - and now he is losing his mind. Major themes (each backed with a wealth of concise explanation):

  • Why denial of absolute truth is the hallmark of modern culture - and the source of our moral and spiritual depravity
  • The fraud of liberal Christianity
  • The corruption of education, and what to do about it
  • Why modern intellectuals are drawn to Eastern philosophy. Why it is fundamentally opposed to Christianity, and poses a mortal threat to Western civilization
  • Abandonment of “the genuine” by modern art. Why “art for art’s sake” is a kind of sin against the First Commandment
  • The Emperor’s New Literature: Dr. Senior topples the idols of the literary smart set
  • How liberal sentimentalism has destroyed social order
  • Our Dark Night of the Church - and what could follow it
  • Can Christian culture be restored? What we must do

The legacy of John Senior: A remedy for today

Senior was no Pollyanna. He believed that a new Dark Age was upon us. But there is still time to act. Where can we start? By immersing ourselves in the great books of our Christian and classical heritage. Christians must find their own roots before they can hope to bring sanity back to the world. He added a special section to this edition of The Death of Christian Culture: “The Thousand Good Books.” Hundreds of titles, for Christians of every age and description.

John Senior’s influence is felt today more than ever. His ideas form the basis for Catholic college curriculums in places like Thomas Aquinas College of California and at the new Wyoming Catholic College and are used to teach Catholic high school students.
