The West once ruled more than half the world. The religion it exported, Christianity, is still followed by a third of mankind. Above all, the way people live - or aspire to live - is unmistakably an invention of the West. All over the world, more and more humans eat a Western diet, wear Western clothes and live in Western housing. But are we living through the beginning of the end of the West's ascendancy?

Helped make sense of some things

Comments about PBS Civilization: The West and the Rest with Niall Ferguson DVD:

As a theologian, I know that an understanding of the history of ancient Israel and early Christianity is vital to the interpretation of biblical texts for Bible study/sermons, etc. But part of a theologian's task is to think about how ancient texts and stories can be relevant for today.
I watched the Civilization series on OPB and was intrigued enough to want to see it again and even show it to a Bible study group sometime.
It is good history with an intersting take. I like the DVD and recommend it.

Comments about PBS Civilization: The West and the Rest with Niall Ferguson DVD:

Truly interesting and thought provoking. Conservative or liberal thinkers should welcome opportunities to revisit history from various perspectives. I found Mr. Ferguson's vision informative and his format very relevant. Great introduction piece that has become the cause of many interesting conversations with friends of varying points of view.
