SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 7, 2022 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Father Robert McTeigue, S.J., meditates on the future of Christendom and how Catholics can navigate a fallen world in his new book, CHRISTENDOM LOST AND FOUND: MEDITATIONS FOR A POST POST-CHRISTIAN ERA (Ignatius Press).
Since the French Revolution in 1789, the West, formerly called "Christendom," has chosen life without Christ. And, ever since then, the West has produced much bad art and even more dead bodies — precisely because of this rejection. McTeigue invites readers to explore new paths back to Christ.
CHRISTENDOM LOST AND FOUND is not about reconstructing the so-called "Good Old Days" but rather piecing together the good parts of what is left of Christendom and renewing a culture that is ruled by the truth, not moral relativism.
McTeigue is a member of the Maryland Province of the Society of Jesus. He has lectured worldwide on philosophy and theology. A member of the National Ethics Committee of the Catholic Medical Association, he is host and producer of the radio show "The Catholic Current" on the Station of the Cross, and author of Real Philosophy for Real People.
If Christendom is lost, what can be found? A new culture and world order? An entirely new sect of Catholics who secede from the modern world in the form of the much-discussed Benedict Option? McTeigue presents arguments for that possibility but ultimately leaves the answer to the reader in CHRISTENDOM LOST AND FOUND.
"Father McTeigue aims to persuade us charmingly and succeeds in doing so. He uses reason to exorcise the forked tongue of deceit, banishing the sophistry of the serpent with the wisdom of the saint," said Joseph Pearce, author of Faith of Our Fathers and The Quest for Shakespeare. "What's more, he does so delightfully and with a great sense of humor. Seldom has a book by a philosopher been so enjoyable to read."
