Description: John W. Whitehead is one of the most provocative and outspoken Christian thinkers in the Public Square today. As founder of the Rutherford Institute, one of the country's most influential watchdog agencies concerning issues of civil rights and religion, Whitehead drew both praise and criticism for taking on Paula Jones's case against President Clinton, ultimately precipitating the impeachment hearings.

In Grasping for the Wind, Whitehead applies his razor-sharp thinking to the question, "How did our culture get into the dismal moral and cultural state it is in today?" Francis Schaeffer, whom Whitehead considers a mentor, posed the same query in his vastly influential book, How Shall We Then Live? The similarity is intentional: Whitehead is also writing a history of 20th century culture and holding it up to the standard of God's eternal truth. But Grasping for the Wind makes the presentation relevant to the post-modern age.

Whitehead provides a fascinating sketch of 20th century culture, clearly showing how the artists and culture-makers (from Einstein to the Beatles, from Van Gogh to Andy Warhol) have influenced the philosophical and moral climate of the world we live in today -- for better or for worse. He skillfully synthesizes the major philosophical movements of the century, placing our cultural heroes (whether it's James Joyce and T. S. Eliot or Marilyn Monroe and Steven Spielberg) into a larger context of truth and morality. Intriguing and intelligent, Grasping for the Wind is an essential primer for where we've been and a torchlight showing us where we should be going as believers in a truth-starved culture.
