I recently had a conversation with Jessica who hasn’t read the biblical worldview books that Joshua has and she wonders if she is as prepared as Joshua is.  Our conversation made me realise that we have taught Josh and Jess differently.  And that is okay.

First of all we need to know what a Biblical worldview is.  Worldview is simply how we look at the world, how we understand the world.  Biblical worldview is understanding the world from a Biblical perspective, or understanding the world as God does.

 

In the Truth Project – which in our opinion is one of the best presentations of worldview study for the Christian – Dell Tackett lays out ….. spheres of life:

  1. God and Man
  2. Family
  3. Church
  4. State
  5. Labour
  6. Community

And covers topics like:  law, politics, economics, art, media, music, literature,

And subjects such as:

  • Theology (study of God)
  • Antropology (study of man)
  • Truth and Reality
  • Philoshopy (mind)
  • Science (matter)
  • History (time)
  • Ethics (values)

The idea is that we know what God has to say about each of these spheres, and that we understand each of those spheres and how they relate to us from the word of God:  hence a biblical worldview.

Jessica and Joshua have studied different spheres more than others, and certainly different spheres than each other.  This is because they have different passions, interests and they are headed in different directions.  They both need a general understanding overall, but when it comes to specific studies, they have differed.

Here’s a list of some of the books Jessica has read

  • The Puzzle of Ancient Man by Dr Donald Chittick
  • Be Intolerant by Ryan Dobson
  • Don’t Waste your Life by John Piper
  • Do Hard Things by Alex and Brett Harris
  • Being a Girl who Leads by Shannon Kubiak Primicerio
  • Me, Myself and Bob  by Phil Vischer
  • Whatever Happened to Worship by A.W. Tozer

Each of these books have presented different spheres of life from a biblical perspective and they have challenged her to think about her belief systems.  Not whether she believes in Jesus or not, but how does that belief – in Jesus – affect areas of her life.  This is training in biblical thinking, biblical worldview.

At Jessica’s 18th birthday party recently both Josh and myself commented in our speeches how Jessica will clinch a conversation by timely reference to a specific Bible verse.  This is biblical thinking, this is biblical worldview.  She knows her Bible.  She has studied it, she has taken notes, she journals her thinking as she processes something, she quietly thinks over and over something, she questions and asks till she is satisfied with the answer, she reads blogs and books, she talks about what she is learning.  Jessica loves the word of God, and wants it to be a practical part of her life.  This is training in biblical worldview.
