Item Description...
Over the past few decades, Christians in Western society have encountered a series of different worldviews, one following quickly after another, and all of them hostile to biblical faith. Today it is postmodernism, but there are clear signs that a cultural shift is again taking place. What many follow is a system that is religious in outlook, though by no means Christian, or even receptive to Christianity. Frederic Baue describes this newly emerging worldview in American culture and recommends an appropriate response for the church. He has studied some of the leading cultural indicators, such as contemporary works in the high arts, as well as evidence from popular culture, and then applied insights from thinkers who have proven themselves prophetic in predicting intellectual and cultural change. Thinkers like Sorokin, Francis Schaeffer and Os Guinness. The result is a glimpse of the future that can prepare God's people for the challenges they are likely to face in the days to come.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Excellent Primer To Wet Your Appetite For More  Dec 19, 2001
rodboomboom of Dearborn, MI has already written a review that I could not surpass. I will just append these thoughts. The book should be read by anyone, layman, clergy or seminarian, who has lost their way in the morass of spirituality (that has nothing to do with God) and religiosity (pious sentimentality) that abounds these days and that can be found within any denomination. I would also recommend it to those free thinkers who find themselves toying with whatever a popular actor might be experimenting with today and makes them feel good. Although Baue's book is concise,and even easily understood, it has more meat on the bone than most popular books we find when entering the local book store / coffee shop. It is worth the brief time it takes to read it, and the benefits may last forever. In any event, it should encourage you to explore more. It might even get you wondering if the idea (being sold today by some with a dark agenda) that there are no absolute truths isn't true at all.
Macro View of History, Society & Church's Reaction  Nov 12, 2001
This is a vast undertaking, to look at history in its enormity and complexity, and find patterns, indicators that help provide direction and hope for our history, our society, our church.

Such Baue succeeds in doing. His breadth of reading in history, society, literature and church are remarkable. Further, he is able with a succinct, tight writing style capsualize the salient conclusions and insights he wants to present.

Taking his clues from discovery of sociologist Sorokin, he guides our tour through history using large systems of cultural change, breaking them down into Ideational phases (interest in things spiritual) and Sensate phases (interest in things material, of the senses).

The author sees our society and history as in Transition from a declining Sensate time to an increasing Ideational phase. The Church of Christ should rejoice? Not quite yet, as Baue so accurately portrays, this is not all good news that some put it forward to be. Yes, increased interest in things spiritual, but not in the most healthy, true spiritual sense.

The main thesis put forward is his clever coining of this new phase as the "Therian Age," using the greek word "there" for the beast of Revelation who portrays himself as love but turns out to punish the real love of God shown and believed in His church.

Baue has clearly shown that postmodernism is not the enemy now. Past that, the world is entering a spiritual age, but a dangerous one in which everything is tolerated enthusiastically, except for the true spiritual entity, Christ's holy and apostolic church.

Encouragement and hope are expressed, with tempered prognosis and well thought out responses suggessted.

Could well be a "break through" book! Fascinating reading to be continually reflected upon and considered by God's set apart people!
