Review:

"Learned and lucid, this multiauthor survey of Western thought about God and the world from the Greeks and Hebrews to the exotically furnished vagaries of our own time will be a boon to serious students. It is a major achievement."
J. I. Packer, professor of theology, Regent College

"Written from a standpoint that emphasizes the majesty and lordship of God, and his sovereignty in his redemptive purposes, these chapters provide us with knowledge and perspective crucial for an integrated understanding of history and philosophy, and for current cultural analysis and engagement." Ligon Duncan, senior minister, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS

"Like its predecessor, Building a Christian World View, the authors of this well-written volume recognize the immense intellectual and practical importance of the concept of worldview itself and its inescapable human significance. . . . I hope, as the editor does, that it will be used as a formidable text in capstone courses for undergraduates regardless of discipline. I also believe it will help cast a new vision for graduate and seminary education." David K. Naugle, professor of philosophy, Dallas Baptist University and author of Worldview: The History of a Concept

"Professor Hoffecker's Revolutions in Worldview is an incisive collection of essays by leading Reformed scholars who examine the historical, philosophical, and cultural roots of Western civilization -- and those ideas and movements that continue to challenge the credibility and vitality of Christian faith. I warmly recommend it for use as a text in all Christian colleges and seminaries." --John Jefferson Davis, professor of systematic theology and Christian ethics, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
