About this title


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.

Store Description

Greetings from Nexus Books. We are professional book-dealers with many years' experience in the trade. We specialise in children's books, philosophy and theological literature, mystery and adventure fiction, and interesting or scarce books in many other subjects. Specifically, we deal in antiquarian non-fiction, especially in areas such as history, voyages and exploration, military books and theology. We maintain high quality, properly catalogued listings, with an emphasis on offering scarce material in collectable condition. A note about condition: our highest grade for a secondhand/used book is Fine. Our copies in Fine condition can in many cases be catalogued as Very Fine or "As New." We fully describe all significant flaws in a book or dust-jacket, even though it makes a collectable copy of a scarce book seem not as nice as it is; but we get very few returns and believe our customers appreciate our strict grading policy. We are always buying books of the sort catalogued here. We purchase collections of old books, particularly in the fields in which we specialise e.g. philosophy, quality theology, military books, western Canadiana, children's classics, detective mysteries, ghost stories and other genre fiction. If you have books of interest, from a few items to an entire library, please do not hesitate to contact us.
