I had to pinch myself when I read Byron Borger's kind words about Rethinking Worldview. In case you don't know, Byron is the Platonic ideal of a bookseller. He promotes good books with tireless zeal, and worldview is a topic he knows a great deal about. His bookstore, Hearts & Minds, served as inspiration for Strange Land Books, the Houston non-profit bookstore I was privileged to be involved with when I lived in Texas. So his words carry a lot of weight with me. Here's a taste of what he said about Rethinking Worldview:
We think that in the growing set of resources to counter dualism, personalized sentimental faith and a thoughtful approach to cultural engagement, this is an important one. We are glad to promote it, encourage you to join us in moving your faith community towards wholistic dischipleship, non-partisan cultural reformation, and learning, as he shows in this book, how to move from worldview to wisdom to witness (and, in a brief epilogue, the role of worship.). He is a savvy young writer, aware of the role of story (and of stories---gotta love his quotes from movies and novels) who is honest about many, many things. Including, his own foibles, the frustrations of the evangelical sub-culture, and, of course, about another key to worldviewish faith: mystery.I'm overwhelmed. And grateful. If you follow the link to Byron's review, you can purchase the book from Hearts & Minds for 25% off. Also, be sure to check out what Byron had to say about my Worldview Academy colleague Mike Schutt's book, Redeeming Law.
Thanks, Byron! I hope we get to meet up one of these days, and when we do, the java's on me.
