Editorial Reviews

Russ Bush
"The most readable presentation of alternative systems that I have ever seen."
Os Guinness
"To think intelligently today is to think worldviewishly, to come to terms with the mosaic of meaning systems which make up modern thinking. This book is a clear introduction and invaluable guide."
Nicholas Wolterstorff
"If you are looking for an introductory exposition of prominent worldviews, I know of no better book."
E. M. Blaiklock
"A most magnificently useful book."
Dr. Alan Kerry
"Read as a whole it traces a convincing history of the evolution of worldviews (particularly in the West), as well as providing a robust defence of the enduring validity of the Christian faith . . . an excellent introduction."
Rev. Paul J. Cain
"For more than thirty years, The Universe Next Door has set the standard for a clear, readable introduction to worldviews. Sire offers additional student-friendly features to his concise, easily understood introductions to theism, deism, naturalism, Marxism, nihilism, existentialism, Eastern monism, New Age philosophy and postmodernism."
David McKay
"For anyone concerned to understand the culture in which we are called to work and witness, which ought to be all of us, this is still an indispensable resource."
Reference & Research Book News
"Revised and updated to include a new chapter on Islam by a contributing author, and incorporates developments about the worldview notion from Sire's Naming the Elephant."

If your question is ¿which God?¿ this is a great place to begin. If it weren¿t for this book, I might still be floundering around in search of the truth.

This is a great book if you are interested in worldviews. Sire starts with a Theistic worldview and traces how it adapted and changed from what it originally was. Sire writes in a fun, interesting and clear manner that anyone would enjoy. Perfect for High School students getting ready for college.
