The Summit Worldview Library is the gold standard of worldview and apologetics studies, now revised and updated to help a new generation know and defend the Christian faith against competing worldviews.
Based on Summit Ministries’ half century of teaching, this trusted worldview reference set provides an invaluable resource for students of the Bible to understand today’s most significant worldviews and defend their faith. It’s a required resource for every Christian’s bookshelf. After reading this series, one will be able to understand and confess what the Christian faith believes, what other worldviews believe and how such worldviews compare to Christianity, and finally, how to take these concepts into the culture in which we live, addressing critical issues our world faces.
Understanding the Faith
The first volume in the Summit Worldview Library, Understanding the Faith is an apologetics handbook that lays the foundation for a Christian worldview by showing how the Bible is both authoritative and true. The understanding of absolute, objective truth has been largely lost. Spend just a few minutes discussing politics or religion and you’ll hear responses like, “There is no truth!” or “That may be true for you, but not for me.” Understanding the Faith dares to wade into the middle of the controversy with chapters such as:
- Is God Christian?
- Isn’t Claiming Truth Intolerant?
- Is the Bible Anti-Science?
Understanding the Times
Understanding the Times is a landmark guide to understanding the ideas and forces shaping our times. It offers a fascinating, comprehensive look at the how the tenets of the Christian worldview compares with the five major competing worldviews of our day: Islam, Secular Humanism, Marxism, New Age, and Postmodernism.
Understanding the Times is a systematic way to understand the ideas that rule our world. While the material is expansive, the engaging, easy-to-understand writing style invites you to discover the truths of God — and our world. This classic should be on the shelf of every Christian home, on the desk of every pastor, and in the hands of every Christian student headed off to college.
Understanding the Culture
What is culture? Why does our culture matter? Understanding the Culture provides practical ways to engage and understand the culture in which we live. Walking through this text will help Christians apply the beliefs that we hold as truths and engage with the significant issues of our culture according to our Christian worldview. Chapters address issues such as: how Christians can think, speak, and communicate clearly, how we can care for God’s creation, and how we can care for those living in poverty.
