Says Prof. Nicholas Wolterstorff of Yale University 'This book is a passionate call to Christians to be of one heart and mind, and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord in all of life. Read it as a provocative analysis of what hinders such singleness of heart & mind. Read it also as a provocative prescription for...recovering the service of just one Master'.
Major sections are 1)What are worldviews. 2) The Biblical worldview 3) The Modern worldview 4) The Bibical worldview in action.
The modern worldview has yielded a spiritually empty world dominated by science, technology , economic growth & consumption . Christianity both abandonned the public world & was ejected from it by secularism . The authors yearn for change, they long to see Christianity penetrate the structures of society, reforming and remolding our culture.
