An excellent text on the world of ideas and their consequences I got to spend a few days this summer listening to Dr Noebel and can say first hand that he thinks every claim through, is well research, well read, and a spectacular teacher Doc and his work is probably the most influential in the discussion of worldviews. This is one of my favorites I go to it all the time to check the angle the news is taking these days Great book Even better than the first edition with the added worldviews that are covered A must read to understand the worldviews of today. Well researched and I would say I found this book interesting hence the 3 stars but Mr Noebel s bias and somewhat sanctimonious perspective is evident, particularly in his chapter summaries He makes huge leaps of logic with what appears to be an intent to create fear for example, he actually infers that secular humanists, are not opposed to pedophilia Okie dokie He lost me right there I think it would be helpful to go to the original sources rather than take the summaries at face valu Well researched and I would say I found this book interesting hence the 3 stars but Mr Noebel s bias and somewhat sanctimonious perspective is evident, particularly in his chapter summaries He makes huge leaps of logic with what appears to be an intent to create fear for example, he actually infers that secular humanists, are not opposed to pedophilia Okie dokie He lost me right there I think it would be helpful to go to the original sources rather than take the summaries at face value Read this with a healthy dose of common sense and logic.Edited to add The author does a very good job of comparing contrasting very different perspectives I found that if you take the basic tenets of Marxism there is very little difference in today s political progressives Interesting I walked away from this hefty book with a better perspective and understanding It also was great to help me really think about my own personal philosophy and perspective Introspection is good I mainly agree with this book and think there is alot of good information in it I did read the whole thing However, it is somewhat long and dry, and I think that is just too much effort for the prize of David Noebel s opinions If you really want to know something about philosophy and worldviews, go read original works and come to your own conclusions Even if your conclusions are the same as Noebel s, it is better to come to them on your own, rather than through secondhand commentary on I mainly agree with this book and think there is alot of good information in it I did read the whole thing However, it is somewhat long and dry, and I think that is just too much effort for the prize of David Noebel s opinions If you really want to know something about philosophy and worldviews, go read original works and come to your own conclusions Even if your conclusions are the same as Noebel s, it is better to come to them on your own, rather than through secondhand commentary on brief and possibly out of context quotes This book might be a good starting place for Christians who are interested in philosophy and worldviews, but it is hardly the end all and be all of what there is to know on such subjects though it s size might suggest otherwise Basically, my rant against this book is the same as my rant against textbooks in general Just because you read one doesn t mean you learn anything
