“If you are looking for a succinct, marvelously clear, well-illustrated introduction to the phenomenon of worldview, look no further. Philip Ryken has managed what few others in the Reformed tradition could do. He argues for the ubiquity of worldview thinking while respecting the balance between its intellectual component and its most basic attribute: love. And all of it is based on the biblical account of creation, fall, and redemption and its implication for all of life, from the arts, to education, to politics and family life. Required reading for everyone from the educated layperson to students, Christian leaders and gate-keepers.”
—William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary
“Philip Ryken thoughtfully explains the ins and outs of a Christian worldview, backed by considerable biblical support and key selections from cultural touchstones. The book is a quick read but is certainly not slight. Thorough and accessible, this is a perfect resource for students who need a solid grounding or a fresh reminder of truths of the Christian worldview.”
—D. Michael Lindsay, President, Gordon College; author, Faith in the Halls of Power
“I have written a behemoth of a book of nearly four hundred pages on the history of the worldview concept. Phil Ryken, Wheaton’s fine and gracious president, has said what needs to be said about a Christian worldview in a much, much shorter space. And he’s said extremely well what needs to be said about it. His book is most engaging. It is, indeed, a privilege to commend and to recommend this magnificent volume. To all: Tolle Lege—Take up and read!”
—David K. Naugle, Chair and Professor of Philosophy, Dallas Baptist University
