A World without Heroes

The Modern Tragedy

By George Roche
Narrated by Robert Morris / 12 hours 27 minutes

An elegant essay in the tradition of Chesterton, Lewis, Merton, and Muggeridge, George Roche's A World without Heroes rebukes secular humanism as the most dehumanizing force of our modern age. This ringing defense of Christianity-humorous, insightful, and uncompromising-takes careful aim at those ideas which have shriveled the will and faith of the West: Marxism, Dadaism, Aesthetism, Empiricism. We live, says Roche, in a world without heroes, a world which rarely challenges evolution as the "origin" of all life, an era enervated by materialism, in which to be Christian means to be stereotyped as narrow-minded, unenlightened and, worst of all, "unscientific." Roche denies this anti-heroic vision of humanity in a penetrating study which encompasses four centuries of cultural, intellectual, scientific, and Christian thought.
