Every week, The Van Maren Show will try to get a handle on what is really going on in our culture today. It can be difficult to find news sources and storytellers that accurately reflect a Christian, socially conservative, pro-life, pro-family worldview. Join me on Wednesdays as we head to the front lines of the culture war.

In This Episode

Aleksandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn, is a renowned Russian novelist, political prisoner, historian, and philosopher. Jonathon Van Maren calls him one of the greatest authors of the 20th century. Solzhenitsyn is well known for his work detailing his time as a political prisoner and exposing the inner workings of the Russian political machine, the Secret Police, and much more. 

Solzhenitsyn passed away in 2008, but his wisdom and experience can provide guidance to all of us as we navigate the morphing of governments around the world into governing bodies that increasingly resemble communism.  

In today’s episode of The Van Maren Show, Jonathon Van Maren speaks with Joseph Pearce, a man who became quite close to Solzhenitsyn as he wrote his biography.  Pearce shares his stories of Solzhenitsyn and his wisdom that may help save society.
