Understanding Theism 101 is the first book in the Biblical Thinking series. Designed to introduce Christian readers to the concept of worldviews, Understanding Theism 101 is meant to enlighten people of all worldviews by explaining why Christians do the things we do, and how we think about the world in which we live. Written with extreme care for all worldview positions, Darrin Crow offers a series of short essays arranged around major worldview presuppositions. The focus of this book is upon biblical theism, and the author explains a broader understanding of theism and other worldviews for an audience that would not be familiar with these important topics. The intelligent, scholarly, and highly inclusive text is sure to open the minds of many readers. The author's conversational, easy-going writing style and sense of humor are sure to both enlighten and give readers a few chuckles along the way.
