Segment 4 – How to Destroy Western Civilization and Other Ideas from the Cultural Abyss

Peter Kreeft presents a series of brilliant essays about many of the problems that undermine our Western civilization, along with ways to address them. “These essays are not new proposals or solutions to today’s problems,” he says. “They are old. They have been tried, and have worked. They have made people happy and good. That is what makes them so radical and so unusual today.”

Peter Kreeft, Ph.D., Professor of Philosophy at Boston College, is one of the most respected and prolific Christian authors of our time. His many bestselling books cover a vast array of topics in spirituality, theology, and philosophy.

Segment 5 – Bible Verse of the Week

Teresa and Gail discuss Luke 21:1-4 — “When he looked up he saw some wealthy people putting their offerings into the treasury and he noticed a poor widow putting in two small coins. He said, “I tell you truly, this poor widow put in more than all the rest; for those others have all made offerings from their surplus wealth, but she, from her poverty, has offered her whole livelihood.”
