Format: Paperback
This is an extremely well organized and well written book that describes the two worldviews which are battling for the allegiance of every human on earth. Dr. Jones describes how the Bible teaches there are only two religions in the world, monism and Christianity. Jones shows how the Bible in Romans describes these two worldviews and how people will turn to the worship of nature (the creation and monism) if they reject worship of the Creator. Peter shows us how this principle is being played out globally as the worship of nature and the ancient pagans gods is returning to our advanced intellectual culture that has rejected worship of the Creator.
Peter describes how Carl Jung played a critical role in the acceptance of pagan religions by modern cultures through the introduction of transpersonal psychology. Jones describes how Freud broke with Jung when he pursued the spiritual dimension of psychology and opened the door for the acceptance of the "sophisticated" worship of the ancient pagan gods via his views on archetypes. Jones then ties this psychological link to pantheistic monism and how it became the driving force in the 60s sexual and cultural revolution.
Peter reveals how we are still feeling the impact of that cultural revolution with the recent decision by the Supreme Court on homosexual marriage rights. Jones gives us a historical overview of the nature of the cultural and spiritual war we are involved in. He describes how in many ways we have returned to similar spiritual conditions that prevailed during the Roman Empire with its diverse multiculturalism and monistic views of reality. Peter reveals how the worship of many gods and the state fosters an intolerance for Christianity because the Bible teaches the total sovereignty of Jesus - not Caesar or the government.

Worldview. It’s a term that most of us have heard by now. It is the catch-all term for how the sum of what we believe drives our response to the universe around us. Many of the books on worldview you will find suggest that worldviews are as numerous as the people who hold them—that there are millions of options for a worldview.

Peter Jones’ work The Other Worldview presents a different take on the idea. His concept is that there are not an infinite number of worldviews. Instead, he posits the existence of exactly two worldviews. These are oneism and twoism. That’s it. The former is the view of a universe that is self-existent and self-sustaining while the latter sees the universe as requiring the existence of a transcendent, personal God to create it.

That may sound simple and you may be wondering why it takes 250 pages to say that. First, Jones works to delineate the two possibilities of worldviews. From there, he works out how twoism is supported through Christian theology. After this, he explains how this affects our actions as Christian believers.

Throughout the work, the reader sees contrasts between the two ideas as Jones demonstrates how oneism falls short of reality. He also works through how most of the world’s other religions have their roots in the idea of a self-contained universe rather than acknowledging a transcendent God. Most of the discussion of how Christianity better reflects twoism than the other monotheistic religions is relegated to the endnotes. That there are endnotes instead of footnotes is certainly regrettable, as many of them are valuable tangents to consider. And the reader would be better served to have them handy in footnotes.

Peter Jones’ book, The Other Worldview, was published by Kirkdale Press in June of 2015. Having received a complimentary copy from Lexham Press/Faithlife Corp. it’s my pleasure to offer this brief review.

The Other Worldview, written by Peter Jones, is a sober wakeup call and warning to the West. Chronicling the decline of the Christian philosophical underpinnings of Western culture, Jones documents the resurgence of ancient paganism in modern dress. Indeed, the author frames the situation with the metaphor, “where the dark forces of Sauron have taken power in the once-Christian Shire of Western culture.” If that seems far-fetched to you, then this may be a worthwhile read as Jones makes an effective case. This “other worldview” is what Jones labels as Oneism, a philosophical system which

“sees the world as self-creating (or perpetually existing) and self-explanatory. Everything is made up of the same stuff, whether matter, spirit, or a mixture. There’s one kind of existence…”

Essentially this is a worldview and belief system which denies that there are two distinct realities in the universe, the Creator God who is independent and self-existent and his very dependent creation. This is the worldview which Jones labels as Twoism:

“The only other option is a world that is the free work of a personal, transcendent God, who creates ex nihilo (from nothing)... There is God, and there is everything that is not-God…”

In the Oneism worldview all reality, seen and unseen, is of one unity, that of the creation. There is no recognition by creation of the sovereign “Other.” This is actually fairly standard Christian doctrine as Jones’ notes, taught in Scripture in places like Romans 1.
