The main ideas in this book will be repeated several times because he gives them in the form of speeches, not as a long, narrative discourse. Several (of the many!) themes are: freedom is found in a moral law p.20; a way of doing apologetics by porving that only the Christian way makes sense (p. 55); knowable, scholarly truth and it is the highest goal one can pursue (p.75). His plea for presuppositional apologetics (even if you are not a presuppostionalist, I think you would understand his point, p.114); the Christian duty seek the glory of God in one's vocation (p.138); despair is sin because it denies the sovereignty of God (repeated over and over but articulated on p. 165); a rational approach to ethics is pointless if it lacks a will to do what is right (p.194).
By now I hope you have an understanding of what Colson is trying to convey. This is a brief summary of what is found in *How Now Shall We Live* and *Being the Body* (But please read both of those as well). It is curious to see what the West would be like if Christian's took up Colson's challenge.
