What is a worldview?
What lies behind your thoughts about almost everything?
For more than thirty years, James W. Sire has grappled with this issue. In his widely used textbook The Universe Next Door, first published in 1976, Sire offered a succinct definition of a worldview and cataloged in summary fashion seven basic worldview alternatives. Students, critics, new literature and continued reflection have led him to reexamine and refine his definition of a worldview. This second edition companion volume to The Universe Next Door is the fruit of that effort, offering readers his most mature thought on the concept of a worldview, addressing such questions as
What is the history of the concept itself?
What is the first question you should ask in formulating a worldview?
How are worldviews formed existentially as well as intellectually?
Is a worldview primarily an intellectual system, a way of life or a story?
What are the public and private dimensions of a worldview?
What role can worldview think to play in assessing your own worldview and those of others, especially in light of the pluralism in today’s world?
Naming the Elephant is an excellent resource for exploring more deeply how and why worldview thinking can aid you in navigating your pluralistic universe.
Can a religious separatist and an opportunistic spy make it in the New World?
A brand new series for fans of all things related to history, romance, adventure, faith, and family trees.
Mary Elizabeth Chapman boards the Speedwell in 1620 as a Separatist seeking a better life in the New World. William Lytton embarks on the Mayflower as a carpenter looking for opportunities to succeed—and he may have found one when a man from the Virginia Company offers William a hefty sum to keep a stealth eye on company interests in the new colony. The season is far too late for good sailing and storms rage, but reaching land is no better as food is scarce and the people are weak. Will Mary Elizabeth survive to face the spring planting and unknown natives? Will William be branded a traitor and expelled?

In his new book, New York Times bestselling author Jay Sekulow presents a political and historical rationale for the existence of Israel as a sovereign nation.
The State of Israel and its very right to exist is a lynchpin issue not only in the Middle-East, but is a critical issue to the world at large. Whether it is the blatant and stated desire of ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, or Iran to wipe Israel from the face of the earth, or the more subtle but equally insidious aim to delegitimize Israel’s existence through efforts at UNESCO, the goal is the same-to get rid of Israel.
Here is the book that defends, Israel’s right to exist as a sovereign nation. As Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, Jay Sekulow has fought with Israel hand-in-hand in some of Israel’s most strategic, international battles. Now, he has pulled together the definitive and comprehensive look at Israel-one of the world’s most controversial nations- and its importance to us as Americans and as a key focal point to the future of the world.
He looks at the legal case for its prominence, as well as the historical and political rationale for its existence as a sovereign nation and homeland for Jews today, and encourages readers to stand with him against the hatred, lies, and efforts to delegitimize one of the world’s oldest nations.

Did Jesus really rise from the dead? And does it really matter?
In The Resurrection of History, David Bruce explores what historians, theologians, and New Testament scholars have said about the resurrection of Jesus from a historical point of view. Bruce argues that scholars don’t have to dismiss the scriptural witness that “he is risen” as metaphor or wishful thinking.
Bruce examines the development of the art of history writing and explores the theological possibilities now open to scholars in the twenty-first century. Using contemporary examples, Bruce helps his readers come to grips with the interrelationship of history and theology and think like theologically-informed historians. Respectful of varying points of view, Bruce defends the traditional, orthodox view of the resurrection and challenges his readers to consider the implications for Christian faith and witness if, in fact, the resurrection of Jesus was historical.
“In The Resurrection of History, David Bruce treats readers to a learned yet accessible discussion of history and resurrection, rightly asking what the resurrection of Jesus meant for his first followers. This well-written book provides the intellectual context in which critical assessment of the resurrection of Jesus should take place, as well as the theological context in which Christians should seek a deeper understanding of the event that lies at the heart of their faith. Believers and nonbelievers alike will profit from this book.”
–Craig A. Evans, Payzant Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Acadia Divinity College, Nova Scotia, Canada
“Is the story of the resurrection historically true? Many popular answers ignore the problem that David Bruce faces squarely in this book: scholars have been disputing what a historical truth looks like! In a clear and engaging writing style, Bruce gives a masterful, accurate, and up-to-date picture of how historians and other experts think about the past. Be prepared for some surprises, and a lot of common sense.”
–Alan L. Hayes, Professor of History and Director, Toronto School of Theology, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
“David Bruce proves a masterful guide to the labyrinth of Christian thought about the relation of faith and theology to historical inquiry, with particular focus on the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Exploring the philosophical suppositions of modern historiography, and the stances of major theologians, Bruce defends an ‘orthodox’ belief in the bodily resurrection of Jesus with sensitivity to those who find this difficult to believe in our time. An excellent resource for theologians, students, and laity alike.”
–Harold Wells, Professor emeritus, Systematic theology, Emmanuel College, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
