Description

A truly Christian worldview begins with the conviction that God Himself has spoken in Scripture. As Christians, we are committed to the Bible as the inerrant and authoritative Word of God. Scripture is the standard by which we must test all other truth-claims. Unless that dominates our perspective on all of life, we cannot legitimately claim to have embraced a Christian worldview. Think Biblically issues a serious call to recover a Christian worldview that is absolute and exclusive. These essays are intended to reaffirm and restore a biblically-based view of life's reality from God's perspective. Whether the reader is a student in high school or college, a pastor or professor, a missionary or biblical counselor, a layperson or Christian worker, this book will help refocus proper attention on God's understanding of the world in which one lives. -Adapted from the Preface and Chapter 1 What we think shapes who we are. That's why the Bible tells us, Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind (Romans 12:2a). In a world of differing voices competing for our allegiance, we must learn to think biblically so we can distinguish good from evil. God is the Creator of this world; His voice-His Word-must guide our thoughts and our lives. With the Bible in their hands, John MacArthur and other scholars and teachers from The Master's College confront the false worldviews that dominate our postmodern world. The authors provide models for cultivating a biblical mind-set on worship, psychology, gender, science, education, history, government, economics, and literature. This book will prove to be helpful to anyone striving to Think Biblically in today's culture. Associate Editors: Dr. Richard L. Mayhue, Provost Dr. John A.
