Developing a Biblical Worldview equips readers to think biblically about the world in which we live. Four questions that everyone asks, at least implicitly, about life and reality are used as a rubric for analyzing worldviews: Who are we? Where are we? What is wrong? What is the answer? Professor C. Fred Smith answers these questions from a biblical perspective, enabling readers to discern how they have been influenced by false worldviews and where they need to grow in their biblical understanding.
As readers consider what it means to be human beings made in the image of God, to live in the world God created, to experience sin and its consequences, and to believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ, they will be encouraged to immerse themselves intentionally in the totality of Scripture and see the world God’s way.

The average person encounters a multiplicity of worldviews in the process of living out a normal lifetime. Understanding the divergent perceptions of reality of the various worldviews is vital to successful interaction with the individuals holding those worldviews. In addition, individuals who claim to hold to a Christian worldview need to have a clear understanding of the biblical teachings concerning the principles of a biblical worldview and the practical application of those principles in a practical lifestyle. Developing A Biblical Worldview: Seeing Things God’s Way, By C. Fred Smith, is a book that deals with such issues.
Smith writes from the foundational concept that “everyone has a worldview, a comprehensive picture of reality, which affects everything they do.” The author also demonstrates the need for Christians to demonstrate an accurate biblical worldview in all areas of life (understanding of reality, formation and application of values,...
I had the pleasure of meeting with Dr. Smith a few months ago and finally had the opportunity to read his book. Dr. Smith’s intention in the book is to help the reader “develop” not “adopt” a biblical worldview. Smith argues a biblical worldview is not arrived at in a moment. There is no “aha” moment where one automatically assumes a biblical worldview. A biblical worldview is developed over time as one understands God’s word at a deeper level. Smith begins the book by explaining what a worldview is. Every person has a worldview that underlines their thinking. This worldview influences everything that one says and does. The first four discuss what Smith sees as the basic worldview questions: Who are we? Where are we? What is Wrong? What is the Answer? Through the first four chapters, Smith presents answers to each of the four questions with an emphasis on how the Bible answers them. He writes, “The Bible should determine how...
This book is majorly important. It resonates deep into your core and leaves you feeling excited about your future. I am not just talking about your family and job, but more importantly your relationship with Jesus Christ. I feel I am a well-educated member of society but after beginning my Master’s Program I realized that wasn’t entirely true. I thought the term worldview was something geared mostly to our politicians and world governments. When I learned it was purposed for our religions as well, I was still left feeling disconnected. It wasn’t until I read C. Fred Smith’s book, Developing a Biblical Worldview, that I fully understood the enormity of how it personally affects each one of us.
Dr. Smith provides us with 4 worldview questions: Who am I?, Where am I?, What is wrong?, and What is the answer? “Every situation that life presents may be understood in the light of the four worldview questions.” After I read this book and answered...
