This book is excellent in describing what a Christian worldview should look like. It is also helpful in understanding other worldviews and why they do not stand up to a 3-part test. Very informative and well written.

I bought this book for a college philosophy class and unlike other college texts, this one will become part of my permanent library. Cosgrove compares and contrasts several worldviews, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses. It is a great read for believers and skeptics alike. At the very least, after reading the book, both will have a better (and respectful) understanding of opposing worldviews.

Honest, concise, and easy to understand.

The author takes a reasoned look at the different world views which dominate modern society. He explains each worldview from a non-biased and philosophical perspective as one who has explored all world views. This is a good book for student and seeker both.

Whether you are a Christian or not, Dr. Mark Cosgrove's book presents a well argued and researched analysis of most religous Worldviews and how each compete with Christianity.

This book is the basis of Dr. Cosgrove's freshman seminar held at Taylor University. As a former student of Dr. Cosgrove, I was very happy to find this book in print, and have referred to Dr. Cosgrove's analysis many times throughout my adult life. For the lucky few who are able to attend Taylor University, Dr. Cosgrove's class has been a mainstay.

The book has many useful tables that help explain the concepts, and Dr. Cosgrove interrupts the text with challenging questions that are expected to be faced in life. A discussion on terms rounds out the details of each chapter.

For Christian readers, this is not a book you will read and set on the shelf permanently, but instead continually pull out for reference over time. Like the "Armor" described by Paul in the New Testament, this book helps defend the Christian Worldview on an intellectual level.

This book is a must have if you are seeking to broaden your Christian worldview. Being open to integrate Faith and Learning in different subject areas without compromising your Faith or Learning.

These is a great book and should be required reading for any Christian who would like to gain insight into the changing worldviews that are affecting our society today.

Such a terrific reference work! But with so many terrific random digits, it's a shame they didn't sort them, to make it easier to find the one you're looking for.

This is a great book discussing the world views around us. It is written by a Christian author so it is swayed that direction - but overall a great read

This book provided great information in regards to the various worldview, including the Christian Worldview.Topics discussed in each worldview include human nature, human value, human purpose, ethics, suffering, life meaning, and so much more. It very infomative of the various worldviews such as naturalism, humanism, pantheism, new age, and Christianity.
