Hey Mark:

Eric Rauch here...:-) I wasn't trying to critique you or your book. I was merely using your story (because it is an entertaining one) to illustrate the limitation of the analogy. I know that you know that it is an imperfect way to illustrate a worldview. Keep up the good work...

Book Description

  • Everybody has a worldview, a perspective on life, and sometimes we're forced to re-think. The world can surprise and overwhelm us, and when that happens, it helps to know what's really important in life. Rethinking Worldview explores some essential questions from a Christian perspective, starting with what "worldviews" really are, how they are formed and how they change. It's a chronicle of one man's intellectual journey, written to encourage fellow travelers along the way.
