Christian Worldview

The purpose of this course is to examine fundamental belief structures, their nature and function, and the benefits of living a distinctly Christian lifestyle.


How do you view reality? What is the source of your knowledge? Do you live what you believe? Such are the questions that a worldview answers. This course examines the nature and function of belief structures, and the value of developing and living a distinctly Christian life. The course develops a Christian worldview from a redemptive history model of biblical theology, which is then clarified using the philosophical categories of metaphysics, epistemology, and axiology. Learners will gain an understanding of modern and postmodern thought and how to critique them biblically, and are encouraged to develop and apply a Christian worldview to life and ministry.

  • I submit that the lecture from beginning to end to me is an experience in the presence of the Father of light. The course has added great spiritual value to my life. I have to confess that I have decided to build messages that I shall use for ten Sundays commencing from September 25, 2022. Thanks a lot. Gabriel A Aboderin.

  • James Grier, was a great teacher. Loved this course. In fact I have listened to his lectures on ethics and they are just as good.
