Gene Edward Veith Jr. (PhD, University of Kansas) is provost and professor of literature at Patrick Henry College and the director of the Cranach Institute at Concordia Theological Seminary. He has been a columnist for World magazine and TableTalk, and is the author of a number of noted books on Christianity and culture, including God at Work.
Marvin Olasky (PhD, American Culture, University of Michigan) is the editor-in-chief of World Magazine. He has been interviewed numerous times by the national media as the developer of the concepts of compassionate conservatism and biblically objective journalism and is the author of twenty books.
It's a good introduction to postmodern time from a Christian point of view.
That said, Veith's book is a good introduction to the subject, and worthy reading for every person who is seeking a well-rounded education.
Couple that with his mastery of this subject matter and its relevance, and you have one outstanding book.
