Center your world on God...here's how! Mar 21, 2007
A very concise synopsis of the concept of the Christian worldview - Creation, Fall, Grace and Glory. Ryken notes that few born-again Christians actually think from a biblically-defined worldview and even fewer teenagers espouse biblical principles in their daily lives and decision-making. This booklet addresses not only the need for a biblical worldview, but also gives a brief description of each element and well as its biblical and historical support. The essence of the book is that life is created, and thus defined, by God and not man. As naturalism continues to invade our schools, far too many followers of Christ are unable to distinguish between the wisdom of man and the truth of God's Word. Ryken does a nice job of addressing each element of the Christian worldview, describing how it shapes the way we should think and how we must also act in accordance to the revealed truth of Scripture. This book would be a great read for those who don't have a good comprehensive understanding of Scripture and how it relates to life, especially those areas where biblical truth and the wisdom of man collide in the culture. Understanding God's original design, the damaging results of the fall, and God's work to redeem His creation which will end in His glory is underappreciated in today's watered-down version of Christianity. This entire series of booklets are a great reminder of the historical Christian faith, grounded in God's Word and centered on Christ.
