I'd never heard of "worldview" in writing except from authors who write for CBA member publishers and sometimes other exclusive religious presses. I'd certainly never considered it with my writing and most likely never will. I do write from my worldview as what sense would it make to write from someone elses. I suppose one could make that work. LOL Not me though.


Sue, "worldview" comes from Immanuel Kant [1790s] so it may be a little bigger concept than you think...check it out :)

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.
