About this title
Author Kenneth Richard Samples faced a profound test of his own belief system during a personal life-and-death crisis. In A World of Difference, he uses nine distinct tests to compare the Christian worldview with current religious and philosophical competitors, including Islam, postmodernism, naturalism, and pantheistic monism. Samples tackles tough issues through this in-depth study of Christianity’s history, creed, and philosophical basis. An excellent resource for readers who want their view of life and the world to make sense. From the Back Cover: Learn How Historic Christianity Is Superior to Other Truth-Claims
At a time when Christian belief is constantly challenged, understanding different worldviews can help Christians think and live faithfully. Kenneth Samples’s own life-and-death crisis encourages believers to develop a worldview perspective based on truth, critical thinking, and logic. In A World of Difference, he addresses the historic Christian worldview and evaluates four modern-day competitors–Islam, naturalism, postmodernism, and pantheistic monism. The use of nine distinct and challenging tests shows how all worldviews should be assessed.
With compelling insight into Scripture, history, science, and theology, A World of Difference will challenge and strengthen your beliefs.
“Christians can no longer afford to be ignorant of how to think and see the world in light of their worldview and alternative worldviews. A World of Difference is the right book at the right time.”–J. P. Moreland, distinguished professor of philosophy, Biola University; author, Kingdom Triangle
“One of my biggest concerns for Christians struggling to make their way through the intellectual challenges of our age is that they often don’t have the basic categories to think biblically about their own faith. Ken Samples’s A World of Difference will give them those categories.”–Kim Riddlebarger, co-host, The White Horse Inn; author, A Case for Amillennialism and The Man of Sin
