How did we wake up to a world where second grade kids are transgendering, Christians are being persecuted for not celebrating homosexual weddings, and prayer is against the law in public schools? Things have changed a bit since 1950 or 1850 -- or 1750 for that matter. A History of Western Philosophy tells the story -- of the bankruptcy of human wisdom, the synthesis of Christian thought with humanist thought, and the breakdown of the Christian West. Watching the death throes of human autonomist thinking can be a great apologetic for the Christian faith too. All of this and more in a great interview with Professor John Frame, author of a terrific new resource called A History of Western Philosophy and Theology.

This program includes:

1. Generations with Kevin Swanson

2. The Worldview in Five Minutes with Adam McManus (Security Officials From the George W. Bush Administration Not Voting For Donald Trump; More Persecution For Christians and Churches; Forced Abortion Still Continues in China)
