ARCHITECTS OF THE CULTURE OF DEATH

ARCHITECTS OF THE CULTURE OF DEATH

The "Culture of Death" has become a popular phrase and is much bandied about in academic circles. Yet, for most people, its meaning remains vague and remote. DeMarco and Wiker have given the Culture of Death a clear definition and frightening immediacy. They have exposed its roots by introducing its "architects." In a scholarly, yet reader-friendly delineation of the mindsets of twenty-three influential thinkers, they have made clear and palpable the aberrant thought and malevolent intentions that have gone into shaping the culture of Death. Still, this is not a book without hope. If the culture of Death rests on a fragmented view of the person and an eclipse of God, hope for the Culture of Life rests on an understanding and restoration of the human being as a person, and the rediscovery of a benevolent God. The "Personalism" of John Paul II is an illuminating thread that runs through Architects, serving as a hopeful antidote for the stark pessimism that issues from builders of the Culture of Death.
