How would your life be different if you had been born into another home, culture, or religious faith? Your perspective of life is influenced by your culture, your background, and your life experiences. This is called your worldview. The Worldview Basics course will compare seven major worldviews and examine what makes a biblical worldview so unique. Dig in and discover how worldviews influence you and others in ways you and they may not always be conscious of.


Leader's Guide
  1. Accurately define what is meant by the term “worldview.”
  2. Identify by name and concept seven worldviews commonly held in the world today.
  3. Explain how each worldview answers these questions: “What Is Real?,” “Who Am I?,” “Where Did I Come From?,” “Why Am I Here?,” “What Is the Basis for My Values?,” and “What Does the Future Hold?”
  4. Discern comparisons and contrasts between each worldview on topics of reality, identity, origins, meaning, ethics, and the future.
  5. List the six distinctives of a biblical worldview and explain to someone else the internal consistency of a biblical worldview in contrast to the other worldviews examined.
  6. Explain how part of God’s truth can be found in each worldview.
  7. Make a decision concerning which worldview you feel to be the most consistent with truth.

    — Dmytro, United States (US)
  • Most of my "worldview" courses have been in the context of world religions but considering that the majority of our population is becoming more and more "non-religious", I found this to be extremely enlightening in understanding other thought patterns of belief.

    — Kelsi, United States (US)
  • I came into this with a solid understanding of the Biblical Worldview, but not a great understanding of the others. This course was a great introduction to the major worldviews and was organized in a way that helps one compare and contrast all layers of each worldview.

    — Ryan, United States (US)
  • This course especially helped me to see how each worldview has some truth in God's Word, and thus give connecting points in conversations with others having different worldviews.

    — Julianna, South Africa
  • Very interesting - it provided me with a much-needed background on the other religions and worldviews.

    — Paul, United States (US)

    — Will, United States (US)
  • Gave a broad view of the worldviews which further soldified my faith in Jesus.

    — Monica, United States (US)

    — Dr graham, Australia
  • This was one of my favorites. Thank you!

    — Jason, United States (US)
  • I really enjoyed this class. The six different worldviews were clearly explained. I especially liked learning how they all agree with a part of the biblical view, they just distort it and mislead people. It all starts with God!

    — Russ, United States (US)
  • Very insightful

    — Shannon, United States (US)
  • I felt the course was deeper and more sophisticated than expected. It was worthwhile and stimulated a lot of thought. I appreciated the conciseness of the worldview definitions and the printed materials.

    — Donald, United States (US)
  • This lesson allowed me to realize how others are thinking as well as some views that I personally should look into from the Bible

    — Rhenald, Philippines
  • Amazing thank you so much.

    — Jordan, United States (US)
  • Very good course. Worldviews are important for us to understand.

    — Billy, United States (US)
  • I appreciated this course. Overall it sharpened my understanding of the different worldviews. It will make me a better ambassador of Christ to understand more about what other people believe.

    — Nathan, United States (US)
  • I appreciated the course and felt it was organized reasonably well. I do wish the writing of the text/video script was less rigid. It seemed to be written for "special English" which made it a bit boring to listen to.

    — Joyce, United States (US)
  • This was good but very difficult for me to understand. I have been around only Biblical worldview and had no base for just about any of the others but is good to have a base to know where people are coming from as I try to share the gospel.

    — Jeremy, United States (US)
  • All the classes were interesting and very applicable to our present day situation and times in which we are, I was blessed by it.

    — Aliome, United States (US)
  • Interesting and informative - brought all world views together as being fragments of the Biblical view.
