Item Description...
Overview
The Bible admonishes Christians to love God with the mind as well as with the heart. Engaging God's World clearly links this scriptural mandate with the pursuit of academic life, extolling the crucial role of Christian higher education in the intellectual and spiritual formation of believers. Chiefly intended to serve as a primer for students beginning college careers but valuable to thoughtful Christians at every stage of life, this volume spells out the central themes of the Christian faith from a Reformed perspective. More important, however, the book shows how Christian higher education fits inside a view of the world and of human life that is formed by these ideas. "Learning," Cornelius Plantinga writes, "is a spiritual calling; properly done, it attaches us to God." Approaching the topic of education from a variety of angles, Plantinga shows that Christ-centered learning teaches people to correctly see the world as God's creation, to see providence in history, to handle secular knowledge critically, to develop good judgment and, ultimately, to use faith-filled learning in the service of God's kingdom.

School book  Feb 12, 2008
The book was an item that I needed for class in the university. It was in mint condition and was shipped in an expeditious manner. Thank you and God bless...
 
Incredibly Convergent Theology for the Missional Church  Jun 2, 2007
This book will be required reading for our interns at NorthWood. I read it on the plane to Asia and couldn't put it down. I've never read a theologian I could read all at once - except for Bonhoeffer. I usually have to read a few pages, wear out a dictionary, and call a few people to get what they're saying - not this guy. He's deep and profound but writes for simple people like me. Furthermore, for people like me that believe the church exist to engage - not just the Sunday event - he provides a theological basis and matrix that helps it all fit together. Kinda makes me think I have a little "reformed" in me!
 
Beyond the 5 Points  Apr 27, 2007
If you are looking to delve past the 5 points of Calvinism and into the worldview that Reformed theology teaches, this book is a great help! Plantinga communicates clearly, conveying simple yet profound truths that are overlooked or simply ignored in many Christian circles and, sadly, churches. This book was very helpful to me in understanding the story arc of the Bible as well as the concept of all things being redeemed. Reformed Theology truly is more than 5 points, and this book attests to the beauty, profundity, and hope that exist in the story of redemption that God is bringing to pass.

I highly recommend this book to those wanting to get a better understanding of the "big picture" of the Bible, as well as those who want a broader understanding of Reformed Theology.
 
not bad  Dec 6, 2006
Actually the book was better than 'not bad,' and not only that it was an easy read, knocked it out in 2 days with plenty of time to spare. If you are looking for an easy read it is a 5, if you want something that knock your socks off, well I give it a 3. It was nice easy reading to end the year out with. If there was one negative thing about this book, it was Plantinga's devout following of John Calvin. Not that I think Calvin is bad, but I think Calvin was mentioned and quoted as much as the Bible...
 
Meat and potatoes  Jun 28, 2006
This book is a clear, simple, relatively uncontroversial exposition of basic Biblical theology. It is quite well-written, with extensive references to other influential Christian books (i.e. from C.S. Lewis, John Calvin, Nicholas Wolterstorff, etc.). The author has a pleasant style, combining intellectual rigor with clarity of exposition as well as deep conviction. It was nice to review what I already knew as well as remember some things that I had forgotten. It also nicely shows, in my opinion, how well the Christian faith stands up without an insistence on hyper-literalism in reading the Bible. The basics of the Christian worldview (Creation, Fall, Redemption) all survive intact even if the book of Ruth is a pastoral novella and the Flood didn't really happen. All in all a very good book, a precious resource for Christian college students.
