Abstract:

A Landscape With Dragons describes the degeneration of Western culture, its gradual replacement by pseudo-culture, and the resulting invasion of the Christian imagination - which the author describes as an ominous, even apocalyptic sign. Michael O'Brien's analysis of several aspects of the problem is incisive and detailed. His approach is not simply critical, however, for he suggests a number of remedies, offering parents tools of discernment for assessing children's books, videos and films. In doing so he points the way to rediscovery of time-tested sources, and to new developments in authentic Christian culture.
