“Learning to discern the worldviews behind the literature we read or the entertainment we watch is a powerful safeguard against becoming the ‘simple person’ to which Solomon referred.* Many people absorb their worldview from the influences around them rather than learning to think critically about what is being communicated and to evaluate whether or not it is true and worthy of belief.” (A Young Historian’s Introduction to Worldview, page 33)
*A simple man believes anything, but a prudent man gives thought to his steps.” Proverbs 14:15
So… what do you believe?
The items included in the Conversations Worldview Kit aim to build a Christian worldview in students and parents as they approach the topic from different angles. In addition to A Young Historian’s Introduction to Worldview reviewed in this post, Conversations from the Garden teaches worldview using Socratic dialogue to explore the first chapters of Genesis to form a Christian understanding of the world. Christian Theology and Ancient Polytheism addresses worldview as an introductory, middle-school-to-high-school version of a college-level religion course in which students are enabled to discover and conclude that Christianity is the true worldview. And finally, Historical Novels for Engaging Thinkers offers (in novel form) four contrasting worldview lived out by non-Christian protagonists. Although these novels are written about the lives of non-Christians, they provide material to practice comparing and contrasting others’ beliefs to Christianity.
As a set, the Conversations Worldview Kit offers an in-depth comparison of Christianity to ancient paganism. Although we are not battling the religions of the ancient world, our culture is indeed saturated with idolatry, and this study prepares students for secular thoughts and arguments against the Bible as it provides knowledge that can protect against a faltering faith. If you are interested in the kit, please read Brimwood’s detailed explanation on how to use the kit and for what ages it would be most appropriate!
