Item description for Lord of All: Developing a Christian World-and-Life View by D. James Kennedy & Jerry Newcombe...
Overview Many believers don't realize that the Bible contains principles that equip them to have a Christian world-and-life view. This book explores the world-and-life view by considering the main spheres of influence that Christians should be working to strengthen: the world, humanity, the nation, the school, the church, and the family.
A culture of unbelief is spreading throughout society-from thehearts and minds of individuals into the media, the courtrooms, theclassrooms, and beyond. Every Christian must be prepared if we areto struggle effectively with the anti-Christian worldviews that areeroding the foundations of our society.
The authors of this book put several of these worldviews upagainst Christianity, and the contrasts are clear: cynicism andhopelessness vs. meaning and purpose; confusion vs. truth; deathvs. life. They define and defend a Christian world-and-life viewand show how to let God guide us as we live and work in anincreasingly humanistic world.
Many believers today practice an abbreviated form ofChristianity. They know their faith applies to their spirituallives and to their relationships with others, but they don'trealize that the Bible contains commands that equip them to liveout their faith in all of life. They may have a "Christian life"view, but they lack a Christian world-and-life view.
In Lord of All, D. James Kennedy and Jerry Newcombedefine this Christian world-and-life view by considering the sixmain spheres of influence that Christians should be working tostrengthen, from the global and national levels down to the churchand the family. Those with anti-Christian worldviews are workinghard to push God out of these spheres, and as Christians we arecalled to reclaim them for Christ.
With an unflinching commitment to God's truth, the authors takeus through each of these spheres of influence and give us anoverview of what has gone wrong and why a biblically informedworld-and-life view is essential. They provide us with the toolsand guidance we need to begin integrating our faith with everyaspect of life.
Throughout the book we are reminded of the truth that God issovereign not just over spiritual things, but over all of life. Heis Lord of all.

Both Lord And Christ Sep 22, 2007
Newcombe and Kennedy propose a worldview that is out of step with the current scenario. Various spheres of life (ethical, government, church, education etc) are engaged with. Pseudo-Christianity is exposed in the systems that once were put in place by Calvinists. Yet, why was the 'Yahweh Elohim' removed from the KJV in 1611, and, since then, replaced with LORD God, from Genesis 2:4? God's Name, the Tetragrammaton, has further suffered attrition, in that it appears faithfully, but in the Catholic New Jerusalem Bible! In Romans 9:13 again Jesus is associated with LORD, not Adonai, Kyrios, Lord, - but YHWH ! This essential mistake certainly contributes to us not having a proper understanding of our Lord.
These two men have researched the data and derived implications from verified and substantiated worldly sources of repute. So the social endemic that plagues modern America will continue.
Is there hope for this economic and military giant? These essays would appear to believe so. But if the fabric of modern society inevitably and unrelentlessly continues its downward spiral, the predictions of 'the last days' should strike a chord of concern amongst evangelicals.
'Keep in mind what our Declaration of Independence says: God has created us equally, and our Creator has endowed us with inalienable rights. Without a Creator, there are no inalienable rights. We would have only those rights that are bestowed by the State.' pg 61
'Justice means fairness, impartiality. Justice is blind. It treats all men and women equally (Proverbs 18:5).' pg 150
'All this leads to unbelief. God the provider is pushed aside, while the state becomes the provider for a disbelieving populace.' pg 156
A good and thorough book on Wereltaanschauung, objectifying thru the lens of Scripture the ethical norms society falls way short of.
Read the small print. Feb 15, 2007
I did a search for this title on this site. When it returned the one and only result I ordered it immediately. When it arrived I found it was the Spanish version not English. A closer look at the fine print in the description revealed it was in fact the Spanish version. It amases me that searching for an English titled book would return a Spanish title that was not English, yet the displayed title and description was entirely English, NOT Spanish. BE VERY CAREFUL this site WILL NOT GIVE YOU A REFUND!
Review of "Lord of All" by D James Kennedy Nov 4, 2006
An excellent book that discusses a wide range of topics important to the Christian. The book helps clarify the Christian's stance in the world/society, distinguishing the world view vs the Christian view. It is well-written and easy to read and understand.
Lord of All Book Review Sep 22, 2006
The book is well written and, even better, well organized. The text is divided into six different sections of four chapters, each detailing a different "sphere" in our lives that Christ needs to reign over. As the back cover states, "In Lord of All, D. James Kennedy and Jerry Newcombe define this Christian world-and-life view by considering the six main spheres of influence that Christians should be working to strengthen, from the global and national levels down to the church and family."
The six spheres the book refers to are the world, humanity, nation, education, church and family. In each section the authors compare the commonly held humanist, or secular, view to the Biblical perspective. It carefully details the consequences of each conviction and the reasoning that led to the world's beliefs. The authors are careful to back up their arguments using experts from the respective fields and Scripture. What's more, they also successfully explain how each of these spheres are intricately connected and how it is impossible to be a well-rounded Christian without letting the Lord reign in each of these areas. Hence, this book not only provides the reader with the information needed to engage in our country's fiercely contested cultural wars (i.e. abortion, homosexuality, etc.), it also informs the reader why it is so vitally essential to our Christian walk that we do so. This is a message that the church needs to hear more. Unfortunately, there is a growing movement within the church that believes Christians should ignore society and just stick to their own affairs. This book more than adequately explains why Christians are commanded to do otherwise.
What a wonderful book! Unfortunately we find too many Christians arguing on behalf of their beliefs quite blindly these days. When debating a friend or coworker on an issue, Christians will all too often resort to, "Well, the Bible says..." It is well and good that they understand their beliefs stem from Scripture but we cannot blame non-Christians for failing to succumb to those kinds of arguments. Furthermore, when these same non-Christians are presented with sound reasoning in conjunction with the Bible it only makes Christianity that much more attractive to the individual. This book will help equip believers to intelligently address the many social issues of today and inform them why it is imperative that they do so.
Lying Sophistry, Defective Casuistry, Same'ol Failed Apologetics Jan 17, 2006
A stereotypical volume featuring the same hysterics, lyin' sophistry, insincerity, defective casuistry and mind bogglin' ignorance that characterizes the religious phenomena encompassed by the term fundamentalism. First rate evangelicrap!
