Review 1 for Lord of All: Developing a Christian World-and-Life View
Date:September 22, 2006
The book is well written and, even better, well organized. The text is divided into six different sections of four chapters, each detailing a different sphere in our lives that Christ needs to reign over. As the back cover states, In Lord of All, D. James Kennedy and Jerry Newcombe define this Christian world-and-life view by considering the six main spheres of influence that Christians should be working to strengthen, from the global and national levels down to the church and family. The six spheres the book refers to are the world, humanity, nation, education, church and family. In each section the authors compare the commonly held humanist, or secular, view to the Biblical perspective. It carefully details the consequences of each conviction and the reasoning that led to the worlds beliefs. The authors are careful to back up their arguments using experts from the respective fields and Scripture. Whats more, they also successfully explain how each of these spheres are intricately connected and how it is impossible to be a well-rounded Christian without letting the Lord reign in each of these areas. Hence, this book not only provides the reader with the information needed to engage in our countrys fiercely contested cultural wars (i.e. abortion, homosexuality, etc.), it also informs the reader why it is so vitally essential to our Christian walk that we do so. This is a message that the church needs to hear more. Unfortunately, there is a growing movement within the church that believes Christians should ignore society and just stick to their own affairs. This book more than adequately explains why Christians are commanded to do otherwise. I loved this book. It was deeply insightful and practical. I only hope that more Christians read this to become informed on the topics facing our culture today.
