This volume is about worldview. This is a concept that emerged in the European philosophical tradition. As a concept it wants to enable believers to understand more faithfully the gospel and to live more fully in that story. In Chapter 1 the authors indicate how a Christian worldview starts with the gospel of the Kingdom of God. The gospel is an announcement of the story about where God is moving the history of the whole creation.
What is a Christian worldview? Everyone comes to perceive the world and God in a way formed and influenced by their culture and sub-culture. From a Christian perspective, it is imperative to replace such an old worldview with the one communicated in the gospel. This essay considers what it means to replace a natural third-world worldview with a Christian worldview.
