If the Bible is inspired of God, it must have some way to show itself trustworthy. And if the Bible is inspired of God, it must have applications in nearly all areas of life. In Clear Vision, Dr. Andy Daniell works from these two premises to explain the foundation and application of a biblical worldview. In the process, he dismantles misconceptions about the Bible and its authority and gives Christians the tools to develop their thinking on politics, economics, science, and various social challenges.
A comprehensive worldview taken from the Bible is about more than moral behavior. It explains the ultimate origin and purpose of everything while providing the framework we are to use in understanding ourselves and the world. Many Christians are unsure if the Bible can be shown to be what it claims to be—the inspired Word of God. Others struggle to apply its directives to all areas of their lives. Clear Vision unravels these issues, explaining how the Bible judges itself, teaches us to examine the world, and clarifies how to view the world through the lens of the Bible's teachings. This includes how to examine
- the Bible itself,
- political parties,
- the culture war,
- capitalism and communism,
- church problems, and
- other issues and challenges.
Most biblical worldview books are intensely philosophical and theoretical in nature. Clear Vision, on the other hand, gives specific, real-world applications of the Bible's worldview on a field-by-field basis, using examples pulled from the headlines. The result is accessible and engaging to the layman, while retaining the depth and rigorous underpinnings associated with more philosophical worldview writings. Christian readers will come away with a better understanding of what they believe and how to defend it.
