"A truly Christian worldview begins with the conviction that God Himself has spoken in Scripture. As Christians, we are committed to the Bible as the inerrant and authoritative Word of God. Scripture is the standard by which we must test all other truth-claims. Unless that dominates our perspective on all of life, we cannot legitimately claim to have embraced a Christian worldview. Think Biblically! issues a serious call to recover a Christian worldview that is absolute and exclusive. These essays are intended to reaffirm and restore a biblically-based view of life's reality from God's perspective. Whether the reader is a student in high school or college, a pastor or professor, a missionary or biblical counselor, a layperson or Christian worker, this book will help refocus proper attention on God's understanding of the world in which one lives." -Adapted from the Preface and Chapter 1 What we think shapes who we are. That's why the Bible tells us, "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind" (Romans 12:2a). In a world of differing voices competing for our allegiance, we must learn to "think biblically" so we can distinguish good from evil. God is the Creator of this world; His voice-His Word-must guide our thoughts and our lives. With the Bible in their hands, John MacArthur and other scholars and teachers from The Master's College confront the false worldviews that dominate our postmodern world. The authors provide models for cultivating a biblical mind-set on worship, psychology, gender, science, education, history, government, economics, and literature. This book will prove to be helpful to anyone striving to Think Biblically! in today's culture.
It seems in our day that few Christians understand what they believe and even worse most churches fail to communicate sound doctrine and instead choose to build churches based on experience or pragmatic teachings of men (Mark 7:1-13).
This edition from the staff of Master's College and Seminary in Los Angeles, CA gives its readers a biblical worldview. Notice I said "biblical" because this book does a wonderful job of presenting the Bible is the sole authority for faith and practice. Every worldview from politics to feminism is examined in the light of Scripture. Because this book makes the Bible its source for divine truth and authority, the writers avoid their opinions and give us God's view of a world gone mad.
This is a great book and I would encourage all full time servants to purchase this book and seek to understand a biblical worldview not tarnished by politics, money, or sin.
