Learn How Historic Christianity Is Superior to Other Truth-Claims
At a time when Christian belief is constantly challenged, understanding different worldviews can help Christians think and live faithfully. Kenneth Samples's own life-and-death crisis encourages believers to develop a worldview perspective based on truth, critical thinking, and logic. In A World of Difference, he addresses the historic Christian worldview and evaluates four modern-day competitors--Islam, naturalism, postmodernism, and pantheistic monism. The use of nine distinct and challenging tests shows how all worldviews should be assessed.
With compelling insight into Scripture, history, science, and theology, A World of Difference will challenge and strengthen your beliefs.
"Christians can no longer afford to be ignorant of how to think and see the world in light of their worldview and alternative worldviews. A World of Difference is the right book at the right time."--J. P. Moreland, distinguished professor of philosophy, Biola University; author, Kingdom Triangle
"One of my biggest concerns for Christians struggling to make their way through the intellectual challenges of our age is that they often don't have the basic categories to think biblically about their own faith. Ken Samples's A World of Difference will give them those categories."--Kim Riddlebarger, co-host, The White Horse Inn; author, A Case for Amillennialism and The Man of Sin

Samples starts out with a fairly thorough examination and explanation of reason, logic, wisdom and philosophy, leaving little room for confusion of anyone willing to do the work of honest thinking. In fact, a person would have to work at being unclear or confused as he lays out reliable methods for grasping truth and reality. In my experience, this is what we see so many people doing in the post-modern relativistic age of information abundance in which we find ourselves. People seem work hard to avoid, and/or obfuscate truth for two main reasons. First, the work of understanding the truth is even more challenging and mentally strenuous than the mental gymnastics and emotional appeals to which we see so many resort. So in essence it is simply easier to be lazy. Second, and more profoundly, the consequences of accepting the truth mean that individuals would have to recognize a need that for many is uncomfortable. Easier (again) from an emotional to attack and disparage truth claims with vague and devious rhetoric than to deal with them in a rational and uncomplicated fashion. Easier still (or at least seemingly so, especially in the short term) to go on living without accountability to the truth that God has made plain for man to know from the beginning.
This book helps to cut through the intellectual clutter, yet in a detailed and organized fashion support sound arguments for knowing truth. Great book for young adults heading off to university to help them understand the world of tenured professors with their elite "understanding" and teaching of selective, anti-God worldviews. An excellent and fundamental resource for anyone searching for a clear, well informed understanding of competing worldviews. I will be recommending this book to many, of whom those who pay attention will also be grateful. Well done, and thank you Mr. Samples.
