Overview

Conceiving of Christianity as a "worldview" has been one of the most significant events in the church in the last 150 years. In this new book David Naugle provides the best discussion yet of the history and contemporary use of worldview as a totalizing approach to faith and life.

This informative volume first locates the origin of worldview in the writings of Immanuel Kant and surveys the rapid proliferation of its use throughout the English-speaking world. Naugle then provides the first study ever undertaken of the insights of major Western philosophers on the subject of worldview and offers an original examination of the role this concept has played in the natural and social sciences. Finally, Naugle gives the concept biblical and theological grounding, exploring the unique ways that worldview has been used in the Evangelical, Orthodox, and Catholic traditions.

This clear presentation of the concept of worldview will be valuable to a wide range of readers.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Reviews in Religion and Theology
“[Naugle] wins the reader over with an engaging, informal style which is always accessible without making undue concessions. The range of scholarship on display is sufficiently impressive, and if what it gains in scope is inevitably bought at the expense of depth, most of the time he manages to get the balance just about right.”
