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. Download and start listening now!

      " Very challenging book - I plan to do the study guide, but will have to buy a paper copy as the Kobo is very poor at annotating. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Dubois | 2/9/2014

      " One of the best books on apologetics I've read. Clear and concise from a layman's perspective. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Francis Gahren | 2/3/2014

      " "How Now Shall We Live" was the heart cry of a people who lived during the Jewish exile from the Promised Land, yet it is no less the unspoken prayer of the faithful today. As Chuck Colson puts it, "We live in a culture that is at best morally indifferent ... in which Judeo-Christian values are mocked ... in which violence, banality, meanness, and disintegrating personal behavior are destroying civility and endangering the very life of our communities." It is no small wonder that Colson--the founder of Prison Fellowship Ministries and author of several renowned Christian works--considers this book the most important work of his life. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/26/2014

      " A great book for the Christian to read and be challenged. Christianity is a world-view that should be played out in our lives. Why pick this world-view over another? How do you communicate that to others in your walk and otherwise? "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 1/25/2014

      " Great in the beginning, but a little too long for my taste, it didn't keep me engaged towards the end. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Albertson | 1/17/2014

      " Good info as to how what you believe affects how you act . . . "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Paul | 1/12/2014

      " I felt parts of it were oversimplistic. Some good stuff though to think through about what are responsibility is to our community. I did buy three Henryk Gorecki CD's after reading it and enjoy the music. Get the one with Dawn Upshaw singing. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Todd | 1/11/2014

      " Excellent book and an easy read. Colson/Pearcey do a wonderful job explaining the problems of the Christian in Western society. It really helped me to understand the naturalistic philosophy that dominates so much of what we do and believe. "

    • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 1/7/2014

      " I liked this book the first time I read it, but then, after some time in college, I read it again and didn't find it as convincing. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirk Weikart | 12/10/2013

      " Interesting discussion about how the religious worldview has been surrendered over time to a more secular worldview. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy | 11/17/2013

      " Great book on how Christianity meets culture. It drills deep, so beware. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roger Md | 11/9/2013

      " Thoughtful evaluation of the Christian life in the "Postmodern" culture. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelli | 10/22/2013

      " Very heady and intense reading, but informative for those who are looking to figure out how to flesh out their faith in our post-modern world. "

    • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Eric | 6/20/2013

      " Seems to me that Colson is too cosy with Roman Coliseum. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 6/8/2013

      " Read this along with Unchristian and many of Francis Schaeffer's works. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dawn Pulgine | 2/11/2013

      " Chuck Colson has a way of digging through all of the angles while pointing you in the direction of truth. An amazing man with an amazing mind. His insight on culture is eerie. This book, though more than 10 years old, is written as if he did so yesterday. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larissa Langsather | 11/9/2012

      " Reaffirms my Christian worldview "

      " In 2005 I read about 30 books. This was the best. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chuck Ferlita | 12/2/2011

      " One of the best books on Christian worldview. I have read this book several times and used for homeschool studies with my children. "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo Cool | 7/5/2011

      " This book is blowing me away! Great insight into why and how our postmodern culture has come about. A must read for concerned citizens and the next generation of Christian leaders. "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marion Hill | 6/20/2011

      " Another good book about a Christian Worldview affecting every area of life. A must read for Christians too! "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhya | 6/20/2011

      " Obviously not a novel, but it's pretty boss. My faith was completely reaffirmed. All the evidence and examples are superb. Read it. Essential for Christians and Agnostics and Skeptics . . . basically everyone. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 5/28/2011

      " Good info as to how what you believe affects how you act . . . "

    • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 8/4/2010

      " Every Christian needs to read this book in order to shape your world view. If you call yourself a Christian, this is the only book for defending the faith in our challenging times. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lorifrances | 6/24/2010

      " Colson does an amazing job of explaining the Christian worldview. The book is backed by painstaking research and makes a credible argument of why the Christian worldview is superior to that of a secular one. Some of the points were a little weak, but overall, it was an intelligent argument. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 12/7/2009

      " Read this along with Unchristian and many of Francis Schaeffer's works. "
