By R. Setliff on July 24, 2000
Format: Hardcover
A comprehensive, yet easy to understand survey of the prevailing worldviews of our day. This is the definitive reference to understanding the ideas and forces shaping our times. David Noebel rather objectively compares and contrasts the Christian, Marxist/Leninist, Secular Humanist and New Age worldviews. By comparing and contrasting the prevailing worldviews of our time, it helps you to clarify your own worldview. It also gives the reader clearer insight into the world view bias that are shaping a New World Order. Recommended to Christians and anyone desiring to better understand their worldview. This book isn't one you just read and 'shelf away', its valuable as an excellent reference title which I regularly consult. Good reference for philosophy students as well.

Also recommended: The Universe Next Door: A Basic Worldview Catalog by James Sire

Format: Paperback
This is the sort of book everyone - and I mean everyone - should own and read. Are you aware of the hidden beliefs and assumptions that shape how others teach you, tell you in news media, and try to influence you? Probably not. That's why this is a superb resource.
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! :-)

Format: Hardcover
Although this book is to deep for most Christians, I urge all who are to read it. Since our world is constantly bombarded with the media, liberals, and other members of the unthinking; the mind has practically no choice but to listen. Unfortunately, many of the foolish thoughts of our world have been successful in installing themselves in the minds of our children (and adults who are foolish enough to believe them) because of the weakening of logic in the United States due to the abscence of truth being told in our schools, our television sets,from leaders in society, etc., etc., etc. This book not only shows the illogical thoughts and views of the three major worldviews in Western Civilization, (Marxist/Leninism, Secular Humanism, and Cosmic Humanism)but literally proves the truth in Christianity by showing the abscsence of depth in the 10 disciplines for all three worldviews all explained in Christianity in thorough detail. Even liberals and other members of these religions would be hard pressed to find any wrong said in this book because when all is said and done there is no other explanation but our God and savior--- Jesus Christ.

I never understood exactly how world views fit together, and where my religion fit in. This book does a wonderful job of explaining and answering questions, and I would also recomend the seminar Summit Ministries, taught by the author, Dr. David A Noebel to further the understanding. Very good. Thank you.

I was required to read this book as a part of my Western Philosophy class in school. It was a little difficult to understand, but the information in it is wonderful. I am still using it for apologetics in my college classes, and in my personal life. I'd recomend it for the person who wants to understand how their Christian beliefs are true, and how to present them to the public.

Everyone has a worldview, and most peoples worldview consists of a patchwork quilt of pieces of competing worldviews. These 'pieces' of various worldviews 'patched together' come from a persons education and experiences. These 'pieces' also come from the ever present 'cultural indoctrination' of our era.

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.

After taking a course in school based on this book, and David Noebel's ideas, I feel more prepared to face the "real world". This book completely and thoroughly talks about all religions that are prevelant in society today (comparing them all to Biblical Christianity) and does a convincing job on why Christianity is the way to go. The best book in the area of apologetics we have seen in a long time!
