I did an interview recently for the CPYU Bookshelf, which has posted today. A small taste:
How can the church help this process? By not letting the quest for a biblical worldview end as a doctrinal abstraction. By letting the faith be as big and intractable and mysterious as it really is, and instilling a total reliance on Christ. Also, instead of having expectations about what young people will do when they go out into the world, we can start having expectations about how they will do it—and for whom. This is where a dogged and determined pursuit of a biblical worldview really pays off. The worldview nurtures a life of wisdom and that life expresses its highest urges in contributing truth and beauty to the surrounding culture.CPYU, by the way, is the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding, and if you're looking for some good books to read, the CPYU Bookshelf blog is a great place to spend some time. The Fall 2008 issue of CPYU's journal -- Engage: The Journal of Youth Culture -- is now available for free. It includes Derek Melleby's review of Rethinking Worldview.
