Go behind the lines of literature, into the hearts and minds of key writers from the past who still influence the culture today! Every Christian student should be familiar with the ideas that have formed the modern world and undermined the Christian-based foundations of America.


As long as Christian liberal arts programs fail to engage the challenges to Christianity in the battle of ideas, they play a part in the continuing decline of the faith in the Western world. It is extremely dangerous to accept the “great” thinkers and writers uncritically, whether it be Karl Marx, Ralph Waldo Emerson, or Nathaniel Hawthorne. The great thinkers and the liberal arts programs have influenced millions of young people to abandon the Christian faith over the centuries.

Every Christian student should be familiar with the ideas and the writings that have formed the modern world and that subsequently undermined the Christian foundations in the West. Young people must also be well-versed and well-equipped to engage in the battle of worldviews before they graduate from high school or college. That is why this curriculum is so desperately needed. It includes:

Selected readings and summaries of 15+ philosophers and authors, with in-depth analysis of:

  • Influential literary works
  • Reviews of popular music and movies
  • Prayers to equip students in the war of ideas.

This course presents a basic survey and a critical analysis of the philosophers, the literary masters, and the cultural influencers of the last 300 years for the Christian student. In contrast with other literature courses, this text is filled with relevant biblical references and truths that will equip the student to address the false worldviews contained in the “great” humanist works of this era. Prepare yourself, and young people to be well-versed and well-equipped to engage the battle of worldviews.
