Video: How Should We Then Live? – Part 1

July 28, 2017
1 min read

It has come to our attention that some people prefer videos over text. While we are sure that this is a harbinger of the demise of Western Society, we do want to be accessible to our audience. Since not everyone is of an age that prefers to read, we are going to try out a new feature. On Fridays, along with music, for the next few weeks, we will post a video that advances our cause in some way. Please feel free in the comments to let us know if you like the videos, and if we should include more videos and less text. We might take your suggestions, and we might not, but it won’t hurt to get some feedback on it.
As a starter, we will begin to share Francis Schaeffer’s great “How Should We Then Live?” video series. We will post part 1 this week, and follow up with the next section in subsequent weeks. (There are 10 in total).

  1. I hope you’re able to get a copy of all ten parts. One of the parts is very difficult to find online with an audio track due to a copyright claim against it.
    That said, the collection is still available on DVD and one can find it on Amazon or many online Christian booksellers. A 10-week study guide on PDF is included with the DVD.
    Many of his recorded sermons and discussions can be found at: and
    I re-read Schaeffer’s “The Church at the End of the 20th Century” occasionally. I am convinced the man was a prophet. His timing was a little off, but everything he spoke of is coming to pass, if not stopped.

  2. I’m unlikely to watch the videos but if you include a short synopses of the contents I’d feel less like I’d missed something. A couple paragraphs would be plenty in most cases.

  3. I don’t have time to watch the video tonight, but I might get back to it. I have a Francis Shaeffer trilogy book I bought several years ago but haven’t read yet. I know he had a major influence on the Christian philosophers of today.
    Sometimes video can be useful. I’m a reader, but some items are better rendered in video. I’ll give it a shot. The younger generations do better with video. Vox Day is going to start doing his “Voxiversity” in video. Sometimes, you have to reach people where they are, not where you are.

  4. I prefer text, or at least a synopsis of the video. But I’m just an old fart, lol. Either way, you guys are doing good work here, it is helpful and much appreciated.

  5. He was a prophet of sorts. The God Who Is There is a book that has to be read slowly and deliberately, but is always worth it. I’ve read How Should We Then Live? several times, but this will be my first time to watch the vid.
    Thanks for posting.

  6. IMO I have found that a video imput prior to reading the material provides a far wider image of the written word… but … State propaganda uses this method as well as Madison Ave. .. Wall Street .. Hollywood…. My…. what to do.
