How Worldview Should Influence Biblical Interpretation

46964
When we read something, that information is filtered through our own experiences and culture. This is no less true when we read the Bible. Our worldviews are important, but we rarely get a chance to see the Bible from another perspective. Because of language barrier and distance, we have limited access. Although it’s never appropriate to read something into the biblical text that isn’t there, unique cultural viewpoints can help draw out scriptural truth that might otherwise have been missed. The Transformative Word series is designed to help illuminate these diverse perspectives.

We’ve enlisted church leaders and scholars from around the globe to show us the transformative significance of each biblical book. Each contributor will write in their native language, and their book will be translated and published in multiple languages. The unique personal and cultural experiences of this diverse cast of contributors reveal biblical truth in a way you may never have seen before.

Suffering: The Key to Spiritual Maturity

A mother buries the child she loves. A hardworking husband loses his job. A family goes hungry. All of these scenarios beg the same question: If God is good, why do we suffer?

For some—including many Christians today—suffering is a sign of God’s absence or anger. For others, it is a sign of Satan’s attack. But what does the Bible reveal about suffering? And how did those in the early church interpret their suffering?

In PD201 Introducing Spiritual Formation, award-winning author and internationally-recognized speaker Dr. Gary Thomas (author of Sacred Marriage) teaches the biblical response to suffering and addresses why Christians are encouraged—surprisingly—to rejoice in suffering.

Planning Your Next Sermon Series? Start Here.

Tell me everything you know about the book of Romans. Ready, set, go!

Admit it: unless you’re Doug Moo, it’s pretty tough to summarize the background details of even this well-read and beloved epistle. But if you’ve ever preached through the book of Romans, you probably did just that. You pulled together commentaries, encyclopedias, and other resources, scoured them for relevant content, then repackaged your study into a series introduction that your congregation could quickly grasp.

If you preach expositionally through books of the Bible, beginning a new series can be daunting. There’s loads of content to sort through, and it’s a challenge to sift the helpful stuff from the same bland, cursory information repeated in every commentary introduction. Today, I’ll show you how Logos can help with this essential step in your sermon prep.

R.C. Sproul on New Age Philosophy and The Other Worldview

The Other WorldviewAccording to Peter Jones, our culture as a whole has switched worldviews over the past few decades. Rather than maintaining a fundamental distinction between God and his creation, today’s predominate worldview sees everything as essentially one.

In his new book, The Other Worldview, Jones explains the difference between what he calls “Oneism” and “Twoism.” He exposes the pagan roots of Oneism, and he traces its spread and influence throughout Western culture. Most importantly, he shows us why Oneism is incapable of saving anyone or truly changing the world for the better.

Here’s an excerpt from R.C. Sproul’s foreword to The Other Worldview:
