"This is the best statement I have come across of the 'reformational' Christian worldview. It is lucidly written, includes a lot of helpful analogies and illustrations, and is throughout generous in its spirit."
Christian Scholar's Review
"Translates the central insights and categories of the neo-Calvinist tradition into fresh, nontechnical language and clarifies them with a generous sprinkling of apt illustrations and images. . . . Highly recommended to all those desiring a crisp introduction to a Christian worldview in general or the neo-Calvinist tradition in particular."
Calvin Theological Journal
"Outstanding. . . . Deserves a wide readership not only in a specifically academic context among teachers, preachers, and students, but also among the larger group of believers who are concerned with issues involving Christian worldview, theology, and philosophy."
— author of Heaven and The Treasure Principle
"Biblically and philosophically sound, Creation Regained offers an understanding that is both refreshing and satisfying... Regardless of your theological leanings, you have much to gain from reading his great book. I highly recommend it."
From the Back Cover
with a Postcript coauthored by Michael W. Goheen
In print for two decades and translated into eight languages, Albert Wolters's classic formulation of an integrated Christian worldview has been revised and expanded to reach new readers beyond the generation that has already benefited from this clear, concise proposal for transcending the false dichotomy between sacred and secular. Wolters begins by defining the nature and scope of a worldview, distinguishing it from philosophy and theology. He then outlines a Reformed analysis of the three basic categories in human history -- creation, fall, and redemption -- arguing that while the fall reaches into every corner of the world, Christians are called to participate in Christ's redemption of all creation. This Twentieth Anniversary edition features a new concluding chapter, coauthored with Michael Goheen, that helpfully places the discussion of worldview in a broader narrative and missional context.

I did, however, learn to like it and actually feel like I learned a lot, so for that I am thankful!
This book is entirely about a biblical worldview and outlook on the world. It follows the structure of Creation, Fall and Redemption to tell construct a biblical understanding of the world as we find it. This book majors on all of creation being God's kingdom, not just church stuff. It does a wonderful job of cutting down the sacred/secular divide and instead insists again and again that everything is sacred for it is all under God. Selling cars is as holy as being a pastor. It's super helpful.
Why I Read It:
I read this book because my friend Luke mentioned it to me a couple months ago. The context was we were talking about all of life being under God's rule and regien and how work was holy and he said this book talked a lot about that. I wanted to know more so I read this book. It was a good recommendation
Why You Should Read It:
This book is slightly academic, it was originally written as an intro to a philosophy course. As a philosophy major myself I still had to slow down a little bit to read through it carefully. At just over a hundred pages this book isn't long, but like I said it takes a bit more time to sift through than your average book. That said, you don't have be a PhD to read it. I would recommend this book if you want to know more about how the Kingdom of God rules over all Creation. I would also recommend this book if you have questions about how we should engage culture. Honestly if I had my way I'd probably make this required reading for every Christian in America......but let's be honest I would probably say that about most books I read. The problem is you people, you guys just need to read more.
Mr. Wolters handles all issues with grace and candor. If you are a teacher of the Bible I would say you should read this book to be sure help give your flock a better understanding of how to engage culture and how to treat their day jobs as service to Yaweh.
