    The Transforming Vision was a book I was assigned to read for a Cedarville University education class I took several years ago. It is divided into four parts and consists of twelve chapters:

    Part 1: What are Worldviews?

    Chapter 1: Worldview and Culture

    Chapter 2: Analyzing Worldviews

    Part 2: The Biblical Worldview

    Chapter 3: Based on Creation

    Chapter 4: Acknowledging the Fall

    Chapter 5: Transformed by Redemption

    Part 3: The Modern Worldview

    Chapter 6: The Problem of Dualism

    Chapter 7: The Development of Dualism

    Chapter 8: The Rise of the Secular Worldview

    Chapter 9: The Gods of Our Age

    Part 4: The Biblical Worldview in Action

    Chapter 10: A Christian Cultural Response

    Chapter 11: Worldview and Scholarship

    Chapter 12: Toward a Christian Philosophical Framework

    The premise of this 215-page book is that society is a wreck and only through a Christian worldview can it truly be transformed. Dr. Walsh and Dr. Middleton desire to see every facet of life transformed - families, schools, businesses, governments, and more. They explain how the Christian worldview is the key to that transformation.

    The Transforming Vision is a good book that is well-documented and biblically sound, but it reads very much like a college textbook. It is not a challenging read, but it definitely requires some reflection. I have read a few books pertaining to the topic of worldviews, and The Transforming Vision is not at the top of my list of most enjoyable worldview reads. I recommend Chuck Colson's How Now Shall We Live? for something that is both engaging and thought-provoking. James Sire's The Universe Next Door provides a better overview of major non-Christian worldviews. Although I have recommended reading other worldview books, I did benefit from reading The Transforming Vision and believe it will continue to bless many others.
