Summary

Christianity is more than a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is also a worldview that answers life's basic questions and shows us how we should live as a result of those answers. How Now Shall We Live? equips Christians to confront false worldviews and live redemptively in contemporary culture.

True Christianity goes far beyond John 3:16 - beyond private faith and personal salvation. It is nothing less than a framework for understanding all of reality. It is a worldview.

In How Now Shall We Live?, the 2000 Gold Medallion winner for best book about Christianity and society, Chuck Colson and Nancy Pearcey show that the great spiritual battle today is a cosmic struggle between competing worldviews.

Through inspiring true stories and compelling teaching, they demonstrate how to

  • Expose the false views and values of modern culture
  • Live a more fulfilling life the way God created us to live
  • Contend for the faith by understanding how nonbelievers think
  • Build a society that reflects biblical principles.

    1st Audio

    The book's meaning was great however, a lot missing from audible that's in physical version.

    This appears to be heavily abridged.

    As best as I can tell, this version is missing the end of chapter 15 through chapter 21 according to the boot. Not sure if anything else is missing.

    Audio part 4 begins with "Chapter 14, good intentions" but Good intentions is chapter 22 in the book...

    Great Book, horrible audio version

    Wayne Shepard does a fine job reading this book.
    The book is fantastic! I highly recommend it!

    The audio books chapters do not match the print books chapters in any remote way. The audio book has 6 chapters. The print book has 45. The narration doesn't even call out all of the beginnings of the chapters.

    The audiobook leaves out large chunks of the print book.

    I ordered this to be able to switch back and forth between reading and listening. Not possible with this audiobook.

    Does not follow the paper book

    I enjoyed both versions, but the audio book does not follow the paper form. It’s theoretically an abridged version. However, it is still worth a listen.

    What a overview of the Christian life!

    This is a super audio and Colson has credibility from life at the top, to his fall with time spent in prison. Our accountability group will use this as a study/ discussion for the fall.

    Good, but skips a lot from the physical book.

    I enjoy listening to books while following along with the physical copy. The audible version makes it nearly impossible. The chapter sections in the audible version make it difficult to jump to the actual chapter in the book. The audible version skips major sections from the physical book.

    Overall the audible version would be great if I were not trying to follow along with the book. I wish I knew this prior to the purchase.

    All truth is God's truth.

    That really says it all. Listen to this book. Then buy the book so you can read and annotate it.
