Archive for the ‘biblical worldview’ Category

I know I love learning about the Bible, theology, apologetics and philosophy.  But the last few years I discover I love learning in many other academic sphere because of my beliefs of the Christian worldview, knowing that this is the world that God has created and allowed man to flourish with insights and understanding.

A great introduction to a Christian worldview of various academic sphere is The Faithful Learning series published by P&R Publishing (one of my favorite publishers).  They bring Christian scholars from their respective field and have them write about their discipline and they write it in a way that’s friendly to the general reader and yet also insightful of its relationship to the Christian faith!  One of the things I learned from reading Cornelius Van Til both directly and indirectly is the fact that this is God’s creation and a right interpretation of God’s creation involves His revelation of His Word and both are compatible and needed.

While looking up to find more of this series I discovered I actually finished the booklets in this series.  So here below are links to my review of the seven titles in this series.  I highly recommend them.

As I’m going over this with a group of guys from my church I thought the following questions might be helpful for individuals and small groups to facilitate discussions and learning based upon the apologetics’ book “Ultimate Proof of Creation” by Jason Lisle.  It is a book that teaches Presuppositional apologetics that engages apologetics at the level of worldview.  Cornelius Van Til was instrumental in beginning this form of apologetics and others have developed and applied it.

For discussion questions for previous chapters click on the following:

Chapter 2

Chapter 3

Chapter 4

Chapter 5

Chapter 6

Chapter 7

Chapter 8

Chapter 9

The questions in this post will be for chapter 10 and conclusion of the book.  Each question is followed by page numbers in parenthesis where the answer can be found.

Benjamin Reaoch. Women, Slaves, and the Gender Debate : a Complementarian Response to the Redemptive-Movement Hermeneutic.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, August 17th 2012. 193 pp.

Christian theologian John Frame once said that “The discussion of the man-woman relationship has greatly intensified since the 1970s.”  I think Frame is right.  Much discussion has been ongoing and many books have been written on the topic.  Different movements have also arise over the decades.  One such movement focuses more on the hermeneutics of how we approach the Scriptures and how we interpret passages concerning the relationship of man and woman.  It is called the redemptive-movement with William Webb being the notable leader of the group.  While different people affiliated with this movement may differ in some of their conclusion nevertheless we can safely say that their hermeneutics lead them to the conclusion of egalitarianism.  This is a book length critique of the movement from a Complementarian perspective.
