Review 1 for Foundations of Christian Thought: Faith, Learning, and the Christian Worldview
An exceptional author and book
Date:December 12, 2010
Dr. Mark Cosgrove gave a wonderful unbiased presentation of the different worldviews and how learning about other worldviews will allow you to become more evolved in your own faith. He is very knowledgeable about different worldviews. He was so detailed in his accounts that he allowed the most difficult terms easy to understand. As a Christian myself I could easily relate to his writings, but individuals who are not familiar with Christian theism can also easily relate to the different scenarios presented in this book. The Christian Worldview was not presented alone, he went into detail about all six worldviews. He shows us that faith and learning work together to create our own personal worldview. I encourage other readers to take heed and understand that the Christian faith is tested daily and Cosgrove gives you the knowledge you need to be able to withstand the test. Even if you believe in one of the other worldviews mentioned by the end of the book you will have a better understanding for the other worldviews. The most important thing that Mark Cosgrove reminds his readers is that we as individuals have different lifestyles and believes, but we all must respect the next person’s beliefs.

I had to read this book for a class and it was extremely helpful in reviewing other worldviews and then comparing their beliefs to Christianity. Great read!!!
