This 6×9-inch, 538-page paperback offers an in-depth analysis of the Biblical worldview. The first section explains what a worldview is, emphasizing epistemology, demonstrating that if one does not begin with God’s Word, he cannot justify any knowledge about anything. The second section lays the foundation for the Biblical worldview: The Bible is the criterion or standard of truth. Here the doctrines of revelation (including the insufficiency of general revelation), the inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture, and the seven Reformational properties of Scripture are analyzed. The largest section succinctly explains the eight pillars or key doctrines that uphold a Biblical worldview: the uniqueness of the Biblical God; creation; Reformed theology; the hermeneutical framework of covenant theology, which teaches a unified message throughout the entire Bible; presuppositionalism (including the Biblical doctrines of antithesis and the myth of epistemological, religious and ethical neutrality); rationality and logic; the sufficiency of Scripture (sola Scriptura); and a victorious eschatology within history. Christians lacking any of these pillars do not have the requisite Biblical materials with which to build a comprehensive Biblical worldview. The last section applies the Biblical worldview to seven areas of life: history; language; science; education; civil government; economics; and counseling—giving the crucial presuppositions required in each area to be able to think Biblically and to have the faith to impact culture. The Foundation and Pillars of the Biblical Worldview is a major contribution to the study of the Biblical worldview. It corrects much flawed thinking among Christians, empowering them to apply the Lordship of King Jesus to every area of life, obeying His command to disciple the nations.
