I often see books that spark my curiosity. Occasionally, I will see a book concept that I just applaud the brilliance behind the topic or the approach.
What’s Your Worldview? was one of those books for me. Years ago, I thought about creating an adult Choose Your Own Adventure book working through the consequences for our sinful actions. The CYOA book allows the reader to make decisions to dictate the outcome of the book. I loved them as a child.
This book is a Choose Your Own Adventure Philosophy book. After a brief introduction, Anderson asks one big question per page, and your answer will send you to another page like it. The further in you go, the clearer your personal worldview becomes.
While I wasn’t surprised by my outcome, it was brilliant seeing how the hierarchy of questions led down that path. It is also such a great gift to walk with someone who is unable to articulate their own beliefs.
There’s even a free eBook here.
- A worldview is an all-encompassing perspective on everything that exists and matters to us (12).
- Since everyone has a worldview, everyone has a bias (16).
- There are some things that are just true period, regardless of what anyone happens to think, hope, or feel about those matters (21).
- How you answer the God Question has enormous implications for how you understand yourself, your relation to others, and your place in the universe (25).
- Finding out what a Theist believes about Jesus is arguably the most effective way to identify what worldview he or she has, because every major Theist worldview takes a distinctive position on who Jesus really was, what he did, and what happened to him (36).
