Also recommended: The Universe Next Door: A Basic Worldview Catalog by James Sire
Dr. Noebel takes a wide variety of educational topics and compares the three major worldviews today (Christianity, Marxism, and Secular Humanism), showing the basis and logical interrelationships for each, and how each looks at the evidence.
PS: I can quibble with a few points, and I'm sure other informed Christians could also add their own observations... but when you see people expressing hatred and fear of this book and then claim to be a Christian while everyone else loves it, what does that tell you? If the Enemy hates it, it must be good! :-)
A worldview is important to understand because that is the way (the tools, the template) through which one sees the world. It is vital to how a person relates to the world and the people around them in the world.
I was Blessed with a 10 year fellowship where we studied the Understanding The Times curriculum. We learned our American Heritage and History, studied the various worldviews, and had a year of studying Islam. It was an excellent class.
Also, you may be interested in a book titled 'The Seven Men Who Rule The World From Their Grave' by Dave Breese. This little but incisive book is on the major competing worldviews of our time with a short but thorough introduction to these seven men and their worldviews which have altered the way we think and live.
Critical thinking is a great asset.
Don't be swayed by any man who teaches you to 'start with man, and end with man'.
'Start with God and end with God' and then you'll get understanding.
