Engaging God's World: A Christian Vision of Faith, Learning, and Living Paperback – February 1, 2002
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Plantinga (former dean, Calvin Coll. Chapel; Not the Way It's Supposed To Be) has written a sage, mature, and avuncular even paternal guide to the essentials of the Christian life for the college student. Most valuable, perhaps, is the final section, where he holds forth a vision of how a student should use "knowledge, skills, and virtues" in the service of God. For most collections and all seminaries.

Platinga, thoughtfully drives home the reason why christian Education is so important. He engages the reader with his honesty about the plight and hope for the world's restoration-through vocation. However, Platinga and other writers out there believe that Christian Education(attending Christian colleges) is the only way to rebuild God's kingdom. He states: " But I fear that for most Christian students, mainstream higher education simply won't be adequate to help them understand the kingdom of God..."(123). I understand why he said this, but there are schools commited to the justice and social cause of the world like Walden University. Yet, even Platinga mentions that all could be advancing the kingdom without ever knowing it.
All in all this book is perfect college students taking religion or philosophy and its great to study at home on your own time.
