5.0 out of 5 stars Biblical Worldview in a World of Chaos 16 May 2004
By Seeking Disciple - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It seems in our day that few Christians understand what they believe and even worse most churches fail to communicate sound doctrine and instead choose to build churches based on experience or pragmatic teachings of men (Mark 7:1-13).
This edition from the staff of Master's College and Seminary in Los Angeles, CA gives its readers a biblical worldview. Notice I said "biblical" because this book does a wonderful job of presenting the Bible is the sole authority for faith and practice. Every worldview from politics to feminism is examined in the light of Scripture. Because this book makes the Bible its source for divine truth and authority, the writers avoid their opinions and give us God's view of a world gone mad.
This is a great book and I would encourage all full time servants to purchase this book and seek to understand a biblical worldview not tarnished by politics, money, or sin.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only healthy way to think 28 May 2004
By Joseph J.Adrian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Think Biblically is edited by John MacArthur, who also has contributed four chapters to the book. The other contributors are faculty members of the Masters College. Every person has a weltanschauung we are told in the introduction. A weltanschauung is a personal worldview. This book contrasts the christian worldview from a secular mindset. How should a christian think about and relate to the world in which we live? Think Biblically is very helpful in giving answers to that question on a number of subjects. How should a christian view creation versus evolution,history,education,church and state,science?
An important feature of this book are the insights given to what the implications of not holding a christian worldview can be. On p.79 John MacArthur writes "There is no viable explanation of the universe without God. So many immense and intricate wonders could not exist without a designer. Theres only one possible explanation for it all, and that is a creative power of an all wise God." God has given meaning to everthing that exists, and without God there is no meaning to anything. This is ultimately where evoulutinary philosophy must lead. It is mans attempt to escape moral accountability for his actions from an omnipotent, righteous creator. As the Bible says in Romans 1:22 "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools."
What the christian believes about about creation, masculinity and feminity, history, literature will greatly impact how we live and interact with those in our culture. There is no neutral ground . We are affected by our culture whether we realise it or not.
Think Biblically will help to instruct and challenge christians to see if they are reflecting Biblical truth in the postmodern world in which we live. This is an important and relevant book for twenty first century christians.

4.0 out of 5 stars College course in a Biblical worldview concept 28 Aug. 2006
By Dan Panetti - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A really outstanding book exploring the concept and role of the Christian mind throughout history with a challenge to the reader to be not just a hearer of the word, but a doer as well. MacArthur is thoroughly Reformed in his presentation of the Christian worldview laying out the foundation of the Creation-Fall-Redemption model as the framework within which is built the Christian mind. MacArthur begins with presenting the case for the sufficiency and authority of Scripture and continues to remind the reader that developing intellect is not the goal of the Christian worldview - rather, it is bringing all things into focus using the lens of God's revealed Word. MacArthur writes that "the Christian mind should be a repository of God's revealed truth." The rest of Part One of the book presents the foundational truths of the nature of God, the nature of man and man's responsibility to walk in obedience to God's will in his relations to others.

MacArthur then taps the expertise of his faculty at The Master's College in Part Two as each chapter explores some component of a biblical worldview. The chapters cover issues such as understanding the currently postmodern thought, profiling true masculinity and femininity, an in depth examination of the role of worship and music, a contrasting view of psychology with true biblical counseling, a look at the significance of science, the role of Christian education, an honest reflection on history, a biblical worldview of the church in relation to the state, a biblical concept of economics and the importance of literature and the arts in culture from a Christian perspective. Each chapter really could be its own book on the subject, presented from a professor whose expertise is in that particular field of study.

Personally, I enjoyed the book, especially the foundational concepts presented in Part One. MacArthur's Coming to Grips with Sin (chapter 4) was absolutely outstanding and is essential for the Christian to understand that Scripture teaches that sin is the problem with the human dilemma and the only viable solution to the condition of mankind is offered through the redemptive work of Jesus Christ. Every chapter had something valuable - a nugget of pure gold - but the second half of the book was pretty tough treading. Overall, a very good book that would be an excellent recommendation for any person interested in examining how their faith addresses all facets of life beyond just the issues of religion.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book 27 Feb. 2006
By jontsai & MianmianMa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a college student, and I ordered a bunch of these books for the men's small group that I attend, and all of us can agree that we're learning a lot. John MacArthur and his colleagues do a great job presenting the inerrancy of the Bible, and what negative ramifications there could be if our presuppositions are otherwise. Definitely helps us to understand the Bible and God more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Basic guide to Biblical thinking 22 July 2012
By Wouter van Twiller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The main focus of this book is providing a clear Biblical framework for contemporary christians. Such a framework is important for any christian living in a world dominated by Western secular thinking. The writers stick to providing such a framework most of the time.
When providing a Biblical framework, however, scholars should make a distinction between the framework itself and differences in interpretations that inevitably will exist within such a framework. Some of the scholars do not always succeed to do so. And because of this, although the book reads as a book about Biblical Thinking most of the time, sometimes it reads as a book about Reformed Thinking.
When the reader neglects personal remarks of the writers, i.e. remarks about evangelicals who believe in spiritual gifts like prophesy, the book is great as a basic guide to Biblical Thinking. The writers present their thoughts clearly which makes this book understandable for people who are new to the subject of Biblical thinking.
