Format: Paperback
This book is a penetrating critique of modernism, the prevailing ethos in which we live. It calls Christians to be aware of the presuppositions of the world around us and to renew our minds by seeking after Christlikeness.

Format: Paperback
This book shaped my young mind as college student some years ago. I am purchasing another copy to read it again. This book gives a clear explanation of what it means to live out a christian life in a culture that is counter to christ's ideals. The book certainly doesn't advocate isolationism but rather active involvment in transforming the world around us. It is an eye opening and well thought out book for christians in the 20th century and beyond.

what an eye-opener!! this book was recommended to me and I thank the person who did so. this is great reading for anyone who thinks that there is something wrong with the world (which is all of us surely!). it deals with the four main questions we all ask and which form our world view:- who are we? where are we? what's wrong? and what's the solution? heavy going in places but always rewarding.
highly recommended!!

An excellent book on developing a Christian worldview 26 Jun. 1998

Excellent book 3 Nov. 2006
By Hope - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was used as a textbook in one of my college classes through Regent University. The class, "Contemporary Problems for Christian Leaders," was very enlightening. The book covers world views in general and Christian world views specifically. As a Christian, my world view was transformed by this book, not in an earth-shaking way, but in a subtle way. Instead of Christianity being separate from "the world," I now see Christianity as redeeming the world. I would highly recommend this book.

A Bit Like A Textbook, But Good 20 Feb. 2013
By Mark K. Wickersham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Transforming Vision was a book I was assigned to read for a Cedarville University education class I took several years ago. It is divided into four parts and consists of twelve chapters:

Part 1: What are Worldviews?
Chapter 1: Worldview and Culture
Chapter 2: Analyzing Worldviews
Part 2: The Biblical Worldview
Chapter 3: Based on Creation
Chapter 4: Acknowledging the Fall
Chapter 5: Transformed by Redemption
Part 3: The Modern Worldview
Chapter 6: The Problem of Dualism
Chapter 7: The Development of Dualism
Chapter 8: The Rise of the Secular Worldview
Chapter 9: The Gods of Our Age
Part 4: The Biblical Worldview in Action
Chapter 10: A Christian Cultural Response
Chapter 11: Worldview and Scholarship
Chapter 12: Toward a Christian Philosophical Framework

The premise of this 215-page book is that society is a wreck and only through a Christian worldview can it truly be transformed. Dr. Walsh and Dr. Middleton desire to see every facet of life transformed - families, schools, businesses, governments, and more. They explain how the Christian worldview is the key to that transformation.

The Transforming Vision is a good book that is well-documented and biblically sound, but it reads very much like a college textbook. It is not a challenging read, but it definitely requires some reflection. I have read a few books pertaining to the topic of worldviews, and The Transforming Vision is not at the top of my list of most enjoyable worldview reads. I recommend Chuck Colson's How Now Shall We Live? for something that is both engaging and thought-provoking. James Sire's The Universe Next Door provides a better overview of major non-Christian worldviews. Although I have recommended reading other worldview books, I did benefit from reading The Transforming Vision and believe it will continue to bless many others.

Transforming Vision - necessary to understand Christian Worldview 23 Nov. 2008
By Polly X Pepper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Transforming Vision: Shaping a Christian World View
This book describes in detail what shapes a Christian World View. The two authors, Brian J Walsh and J Richard Middleton say they taught around twenty different courses on this subject, in several universitites. This book is a result of their desire to "help students develop an integrated Christian world view..faithful to the Scriptures and motivating for Christian obedience in a secular age." (p11)

The book is written in an interesting and lively style, is both thought-provoking and easy to understand. If you are a Christian, you should know the information in The Transforming Vision and check yourself to see how much you have compromised what the Scriptures say on this subject. If you are not a Christian and want to understand the Christian World View, this book is also for you.

Outstanding! an essential Christian Worldview resource 4 Aug. 2011
By Kenny G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Simply an outstanding and essential read for a well rounded study of a Reformed Christian Worldview. I am developing a curriculum in Christian Worldview studies at my church. A member, who is also a Teaching Pastor at our church AND a Professor who teaches Worldview studies at a local Christian college turned me on to this resource along with Creation Regained by Wolters. For me, Transforming Vision filled in a few gaps that Wolters left open in his theology and explanation. We are also using How Should We Then Live by Francis Schaeffer and Total Truth by Nancy Pearcey as part of the curriculum.
