Book Review; Whats Your Worldview? By James N. Anderson


James N. Anderson. What’s Your Worldview? Crossway Books, 2014 Kindle Paperback

What’s your worldview? Now you may think, not sure I have one  and James N. Anderson would say “worldviews are like belly buttons. Every one has one, but we don’t talk about them often.” With that Mr. Anderson, not to be confused with the Mr. Anderson of The Matrix, leads us on a journey of discovery or reflection on what exactly is your worldview. He stated that a “worldview is an all-encompassing perspective on everything that exists and matters to us.” What’s Your Worldview is unique in the sense that it is like a choose your own adventure or path book. The author will ask several questions and based on your answers will lead you to which worldview you lean to. Then if you don’t like where you end up, you can have a do over and see where you would end up if you answered the other way. Great way to learn worldviews that surround us.

To be honest I was quite skeptical how this would work. But when I received the book I sat with my family and went through half of it in one night. We had a good time discovering the different worldviews that surround us. We even corrected some faulty understandings that some of my kids had. It was a great tool to learn the basics of many of the worldviews that are out there. Not sure if the author intended this, but it also helps to discern better the worldviews in the media around us. Knowledge is power and this book gives you knowledge. This book is not an exhaustive book on worldviews but gives an overview of just about every worldview that you will encounter and leads you in the right direction as to which worldview you should have.

I love books and am an avid reader of books. Sometimes a great book comes along that is new and different. Throws off the monotony of reading from introduction to the end. This book did that for me. A great primer for a worldview class for homeschoolers or small groups.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through Crossway Books book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
