    This may be my new favorite worldview book. Author J.F. Baldwin compares worldviews to the characters of Frankenstein and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Frankenstein's monster represents all other worldviews which believe man is innately good. Jekyll and Hyde represent the Christian worldview which believes man is born in sin. Christians, members of the "Hyde" crowd, must know what they believe and what sets Christianity apart from other worldviews. The author gives a brief overview of different worldviews in understandable language, so that even the beginner can understand this complex topic. Interesting real-life stories are used to drive home the different lessons. He discusses blind faith, good works and selfishness in relation to all the worldviews. Does your worldview require you to be selfish and look out for number one, or does it call you to show mercy and live a selfless, sacrificial life? This book will cause you to ask questions about things you see and hear in the world around you; moreover it will help you understand why you believe certain things. Are you most like Frankenstein or Hyde? 271 pgs, pb – Donna

    It happens to me once in awhile. I start skimming through a curriculum product and then realize I've slowed down and am reading it thoroughly. This is one of those products. I might be inclined to call it a "practically perfect" introduction to worldview. Designed as a four-lesson unit study and targeting a middle school audience, it provides instructional information, illustrative hands-on activities, and well-developed questions and talking points for family discussions. The lessons move from defining worldview, to finding the commonalities between worldviews, to identifying four worldview "families" (polytheism, monotheism, pantheism, and naturalism) and placing the world's religions in these families, and finally to evaluating the impact of worldview on history. The student is led into discovery: learning to think and evaluate for himself. And, perhaps most important for this age group, they are given tools by which they can continue the evaluation process.

    The Guide is written directly to the student with the parent serving more or less as an administrator. This is an effective presentation methodology because many parents are unfamiliar with these topics and uncertain how to present them. Here, they can become co-learners. Both the instructional segments and the hands-on activities (designed to illustrate and lead the student into understanding) are well-laid out, thoroughly explained and easy to follow. The harder-to-find supplies are provided with the remainder being household/office items. Lessons include definitions, instruction, hands-on activities, processing explanations, review and Table Talk (guidelines for family discussion). Literature selections are used with some lessons to provide discussion points and to further clarify the instruction. The Appendix includes reproducible (for the family) copies of worksheets, literature selections, and a summary of 12 different worldviews. The "very back" of the guide includes nine cardstock pages which are used for some of the lesson activities. The curriculum packet includes the Guide plus pre-cut wrapping papers, three white boxes (flattened, six-inch cubes), and a pair of 3-D glasses. 87 pgs. pb. ~ Janice

    Suppose you were to attend a symposium; each contributor one of the finest minds in the modern Christendom; each presenting a paper detailing the impact of thinkers on civilizationââ‚™s collective worldview through various periods in history. And further suppose that each of these presenters also emphasized the majesty and lordship of God and His sovereignty in His redemptive purposes. Such a marvelous collection of ââ‚Å"speechesâ₝ (a.k.a. essays) make up the core of this book. From the ancient Greeks and biblical writers through each of the ââ‚Å"periodsâ₝ ââ‚" Medieval, Renaissance, Reformation, Enlightenment, Modern, and Postmodern ââ‚" each contributor works toward providing an understanding of the flow of western thought. Highly readable, though not necessarily an easy read, these essays explore the ideas that have revolutionized the way in which people thought and acted and provide a history of major worldviews. A number of organizational helps contribute to the understandability of their efforts. Each essay includes a number of sidebar quotes. Additionally, in the upper lefthand sidebar of each set of facing pages thereââ‚™s an essay outline that identifies exactly where you are reading within the structure of the essay. A resource list for further reading and a set of discussion questions conclude each essay. One of my favorite parts of the book is found in the appendices ââ‚" a timeline of the turning points in worldview. Also included in the appendices are a list of recommended resources for exploring worldview, several indices (subjects, personal names, scripture), and a glossary. 424 pgs, pb ~ Janice

    Is your student ready for the hard questions? This study puts it this way: "Do the good ideas we find in scripture match reality better than any of the false ideas opposed to scripture?" In nine weeks of study, your student will be introduced to those questions, have the opportunity to examine and think about them; talk about the different ways to respond and become much better prepared to give an account for the hope that is his. In the form of a devotional, each of nine weekly lessons provides a study centered around one topic (understanding worldview; nature of man; nature of God; four types of worldview; how do you know?; ideas have consequences; sacred/secular dichotomy; apologetics and evangelism; and finding your identity in Christ.) A relatively brief essay (usually around 4 pages) is followed by questions for the student to think through and answer (space is provided). The week's study concludes with a set of discussion questions, clearly begging for interaction either as a family or perhaps a small group of friends. Scripture references and reading assignments are integrated into the questions encouraging the student to think deeply on these things for a bit rather than plowing through on a comprehension-only type of approach. Due to the devotional and discussion approach of this study, there is no answer key.

    Concise and to the point, but still very applicable and practical, this is for those who may not want to complete a really extensive course, but still want a course with good discussion topics and thoughtful questions. There are suggestions for further reading/study in both the endnotes and on the author's website (Worldview Academy). 72 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    While many believe that print media is a dying medium, the skills of collecting data, reporting on events, and writing articles in a straightforward way are still valuable in today's society. If you have students interested in print journalism or just want to expose them to this specific form of writing, this worktext from Institute for Excellence in Writing does a thorough job of presenting the basics and providing instruction. It focuses specifically on print media, and while it touches on blogs, magazines, etc., it really is concerned mostly with newspapers. Teacher instruction is minimal as the book is written directly to the student and leads into assignments during explanations of different aspects. The book gives a very brief history of journalism and then gets right into giving tips and practice for writing. Students will build background skills like knowing their audience, generating and narrowing ideas, investigating and interviewing, and more. An Associated Press Style Guide is recommended so students can use the proper style and learn how to quote properly and avoid plagiarism. Once students get an idea of the basic skills they need, they learn about the different types of stories, like news, features, and opinions, and the formats they are written in. Tips on drafting, editing, quoting, etc. are all included so writers learn how to write seamless stories using the format and style that's most acceptable in professional journalism. After each chapter are review questions that will make sure students understand the finer points, and of course additional writing assignments throughout the chapters give students hands-on experience at writing articles. Unlike my journalism classes in college, this book admits that the way a person reports on events depends a lot on their worldview. It discusses relativism and theism and gives examples of how a story can be different when told using these conflicting views. It shows how to truly keep your worldview out when reporting the facts, but how writers can apply their worldview in different writings like opinion pieces. Instruction is also given on how to find a market for your work and writing query letters, as well as the physical aspects of a newspaper, like how to do layout and design to pull an entire newspaper together. With good basic instruction and plenty of examples and prompts for students to write, this program is perfect for practicing writing skills and learning what the wonderful world of journalism is all about.
