 General Description:

The End of the Modern World by Fr. Romano Guardini.

This expanded edition of Guardini's classic work, first written over 50 years ago, includes the original text of The End of the Modern World, as well as the entirety of its explicit sequel, Power and Responsibility, in which Guardini analyzes modern man's conception of himself in the world and examines nature and use of power. The principle of individual responsibility weaves both works into a seamless, comprehensive, and compelling moral statement.

"As Neuhaus and Wilhelmsen warn us, Guardini's vision of the present and the future is bracing stuff, going beyond optimism and pessimism into the prophetic wilderness where the difficult truth can be proclaimed. The truth, in his view, is that man has lost his place in the universe--and he has not lost it because God no longer has a place there. Guardini sees a new age coming, however, in which the fight between Christianity and secularism will be sharpened and in which it will be possible, if we have the nerve for it, to restore man's dignity and his sense of place.... It is a urgent call to holiness, and inspiring challenge, and an exceptionally important book for a new millennium." -- First Things, January 1999
