So often the intellectual side of our faith is set against the spiritual side of our faith. Moreland does a fantastic job of showing how that a mature Christian can embrace both of these
An excellent presentation of the state of the Western World's view of reality and the implications for the past, present, and future direction of both Christian and non-Christian western societies. Moreland considers the implications of these views both from a macro as well as micro perspective bringing the application of how one's world view has direct implications for our experience of life. He presents practical examples, resources and ways to apply real world living within the context of a world view consistent with reality. Like the content, the literary presentation of the material is quite substantial when compared to the typical western reading material of most recent decades. This can be difficult to follow at times but well worth the effort in pushing
through some of the more challenging sections. One of the most useful aspects of Moreland's book is his reference to dozens of contemporary authors and their respective works, from all perspectives, that provide year's of additional reading material to help stretch one's mind and understanding of present day Western perspectives. I highly recommend this for those with a desire to expand and develop their mind as an expression of their love and commitment for God.
I enjoyed this book very much, as it has given me a lot of food for thought. However, the subject matter is a little deep and probably better suited for reading rather than listening. Still, as a busy professional, this was a great way to plow through a good book about an important topic in a reasonable time.
This book offers excellent discussion about different views within the church and trends inside and outside of it. It frames important questions for Christians to contemplate and attempts to point readers towards answers.
JP offers a compelling case to truly follow Christ with all of you. I pray that the conviction I experienced leads me to walk more closely with Christ. As a side note it was quite the juxtaposition to picture JP speaking with James Adams' voice.
Yes, to better understand his arguments as my background isn't philosophy.
He has such a stuffy voice which kind of re-enforces the myth that this is for 'intellectuals' only.
Nothing extreme, but the stories he shared touched my heart.
It would be great to have access to the study questions in print form (without having to buy the Kindle version). I couldn't find them on the websites, and I feel like I'll need to transcribe them to be able to answer them.
