Byron Borger, who already reviewed Rethinking Worldview so positively, has now made my day by including it in his list of 2007's best books -- with an eponymous award, no less:
(RE)THINKING AWARD FOR ANSWERING THE QUESTION: CAN ANYBODY WRITE A BOOK ABOUT WORLDVIEW AND SAY SOMETHING NEW?
(Re)Thinking Worldview: Learning to Think, Live, and Speak in This World J. Mark Bertrand (Crossway) $16.99 Hooo-ray, this is one great book. You know that the concept of worldview, and worldviewish cultural discernment is a foundational part of our work here at the bookstore; we love to help Christian folks “connect the dots” between the way they see, the way they evaluate our world, how they embrace their callings in these days. This book not only explains worldviews in refreshing and smart ways, but it is deeply Biblical, thoughtfully written, and very practical. We reviewed it when it first came out over at the blog and we remain convinced it is a wonderful and important book by a very clever fellow. As Davey Naugle writes, “Bertrand’s book is a rich gift to serious citizens of the Kingdom of God.” Maybe I should (re)think the name of this award to convince you to take it seriously. This is a great, great book.
I'm truly honored.
