Conceiving of Christianity as a ‘worldview’ has been one of the most significant events in the church in the last 150 years. In this book, David Naugle provides a good discussion of the history and contemporary use of worldview as a totalising approach to faith and life.

This informative volume first locates the origin of worldview in the writings of Immanuel Kant and surveys the...
Contemporary society prides itself on its veneer of tolerance. Looking below the surface, however, we discover that our society is actually superficial, amoral and prejudiced. It is to this society that we as Christians are called to stand for the truth and express the love of God.

Late Victorian and Edwardian Britain saw great change, as fiction writers took primary place in book publishing. The writers were an undercover revolution who rejected Christianity, replacing it with self realization and loose morals. Murray shows that the values they ushered in did not bring what they promised, and points us back to the gospel.
In 1859 Charles Darwin published On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection: or, the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. It has affected the worldview of generations since encouraging them to think that they are the products of chance random process that ultimately have no reason for existence.

This book reviews Charles Darwin’s religious ideas and...

Too many people sit on the fence and ignore or are unaware of the fact that Christianity is a historical religion. As Laurence Peter once said History repeats itself because nobody listens. The point of having a debate is not to have a...
