Book Log: How to Win the Culture War, by Peter Kreeft

This book is a clarion call to Christians in the West to fully recognize one of those truths of the Faith that is known, but often ignored, underplayed, or simply ignored: There is a war going on, we are in the midst of it, and the outcome of the war will determine the fate of individuals for all eternity. Kreeft issues a call to holiness, demanding that we as Christians recognize the reality of the conflict and work to life accordingly.

The book has an interesting structure. From the introduction:
To win any war, and ay kind of war, the nine most necessary things to know are the following:
  1. that you are at war
  2. who your enemy is
  3. what kind of war you are in
  4. what the basic principle of this kind of war is
  5. what the enemy's strategy is
  6. where the main battlefield is
  7. what weapon will defeat the enemy
  8. how to acquire this weapon
  9. why you will win
I strongly recommend this book
