Learning to Love God in a World of Options

Part One orients students to the concept of “worldview” and offers an introduction to the God of the Bible who is worthy of our love and worship. It provides a basic framework for Christian theology.
  1. Learning to Love Others—and God

  2. The Worldview Tool

  3. An Introduction to God

  4. God as Powerful Creator

  5. God as Faithful Redeemer

  6. God as Incarnate Savior

Part Two further develops key concepts of Christian theology within the context of world religions and Christian history. It helps to show why some perspectives cannot rightly be viewed as “Christian”; and it also shows that there can be understandable, and even acceptable, differences among genuine Christians.
  1. A Glimpse at World Religions

  2. A Glimpse at Christian History

  3. God’s Omnipotence

  4. God’s Omniscience

  5. God’s Grace

  6. God’s Judgment

Part Three returns to the comprehensive concept of worldview and uses this tool to understand and evaluate non-Christian worldviews. Different non-Christian worldviews will be examined based on their respective views of God, the universe, and humanity.
  1. Different Worldviews: An Overview

  2. Deism & Secular Humanism: Emphasis on Reason

  3. Nihilism: The Dive Into Despair

  4. Existentialism: Emphasis on Feelings

  5. Pantheism and New Age: Everything is One

  6. Syncretism, Pluralism, and Relativism: Whatever!

Part Four helps students recognize that the Christian worldview is true and better than any worldview alternative. The Christian worldview provides a better basis for our deepest moral intuitions and demands, a better interpretation of the existence of the universe and life itself, and a better explanation of Jesus and the Bible.
  1. Meaning, Morality, and Social Justice

  2. Christianity and Science

  3. Jesus and His Resurrection: The Gospels

  4. Jesus and His Resurrection: The New Testament

  5. The Bible:  The Authority of the Books

  6. The Bible:  The Reliability of the Manuscripts
