    1. This book was a compilation of chapters on different subjects written by different authors. I really liked MacArthur's chapters on "Comprehending Creation" and "Having an Eternally Right Relationship With God," in which the Gospel was laid out very clearly.I also liked R.W. Mackey, II's chapter on "Proposing A Biblical Approach To Economics." Most of the other material was just average, but I am sure the reader will find something beneficial to him in this book.


    2. This is a topic close to my heart – developing a Christian worldview and living according to what the Bible teaches and not the culture around us. The book is a collection of articles by different authors, each chapter dealing with a different topic. The first chapters deal with the foundation behind having a Christian worldview – having a biblical foundation. This starts with whether we believe the Bible to be authoritative and sufficient. Another chapter dealt with the importance of what w [...]


    3. This book is not the best book if you are looking for a good critique an apologetic for presenting a biblical worldview to the postmodern worldview. Instead it is a compilation of articles from different college professors who share about fundamentalist issues that are attacked by the postmoodern view.However - The chapter dealing with the history of postmodernism is actually very good and provides an excellent summary.Recommendation - borrow it from a library and get what you want from it.


    4. I want to give this 3 & 1/2 stars, because it was better than good, but it wasn't great. I would certainly recommend the text for a young person who is about to dive into university or upper high school. It will also be helpful for adults. Some chapters were stronger than others. Weaker ones were on politics, and creation (I think MacArthur is a bit strict on that). Strong chapters were on biblical masculinity, biblical femininity, and postmodernism.


    5. The first half of the book was a 4 but the 2nd half about a 2 so it was a 3 overall. It was insightful but not an easy read and written on the post-graduate level with too many chapter authors. It was difficult to find continuity with so many authors. Offered a variety of critical views and was very interesting.


    6. John MacArthur and other Masters College faculty examine various topics from okay's culture and society. They apply a biblical world view to these topics. I finished this book feeling more prepared and also eager to apply biblical thinking to events and situations around me. Definitely recommend this read.


    7. A tough read at times, but a great example of a college education in a book. A wide swatch of topics are covered, though I wish some of my alama matter's other professors had been selected for a few chapters, as MacArthur seems to have the lion's share of topics. Highly recommend the last chapter by Prof Horner.


    8. MacArthur is an excellent thinker. The co-authors really do a great job of addressing various aspects of the "Christian" worldview. Although much of this book is obviously leaning toward their Calvinistic mindset, it is worth the read - especially since it can be read by individual essay.



    9. This book is great - very practical and insightful. It goes through a lot of different issues (such as history, government, and education) and shows what the Bible says about each of those topics.
