Light for a Dark World

by RandyEhrler on May 22, 2012

I have read this book twice. Most recently, I read it aloud with my wife. This was a great experience for us. We are both Christians, only recently becoming on fire for our faith. We both grew up as secular Christians and really had no knowledge or understanding of how a Christian differed from a Non-Christian in the real world. Outside of our acceptance of Christ, most Christians live, behave, consume, and vacation just like non-believers. We watch the same movies, attend the same schools and generally "fit in" the "World." This is the problem. Over the past 100 years, our culture has been under attack by Secular Humanism and Moral Relativism. Our schools and churches hardly resemble those attended by our Grand Parents. This silent enemy has lived among us, deceptively altering our perception of the world and gradually changing our beliefs of right and wrong. The Church has ceased to act as a counter to this shift. In many cases it is equally deceived. This does not bode well for our nation or Western culture. If we concede everything to Secular Humanism and Moral Relativism, we are doomed. I was ignorant of the ways in which our culture has been indoctrinated with beliefs and attitudes that are antithetical to Biblical truth. This book is the beginning of an education in the Christian Worldview. It lays a foundation for understanding the purpose of our existence as it is presented in the bible. Using scripture and anecdotes Colson and Pearcey do a wonderful job of presenting this material. I especially recommend this book if you are a parent with children in the public schools. Public education has eliminated any remnant of the Christian faith from its buildings - but other "faiths" are alive and well. Evolution, environmentalism and human sexuality are all active in the schools, with powerful organizations backing them who are oppositional to Christianity. The kids are sitting ducks! It is critical that we learn the Christian Worldview and teach it to our children. If we don't - who will? R.I.P. Chuck Colson.

Strong in the Faith

Mr. Colson takes on the culture, which assumes that everything can be explained by science. He argues that the Biblical worldview corresponds better to what we see around us than does science. The book alternates between theory and gripping narratives that support the theoretical points. A strong read!

Outstanding read

by Doc356 on Jun 7, 2007

A very well written, well laid out book comparing and contrasting the Christian Worldview with the Naturalistic Worldview of modern society. Very thought provoking book with many excellent storys to illustrate it's points. A book I have bought extra copies of to pass on to friends.
