If we reacted to our common culture with not just biblical facts, but also grace and compassion, what would our world be like?
How could our world be different if Christians were recognized for not only speaking the truth, but also demonstrating mercy?
What would our lives be like if we reacted to our common culture with not just biblical facts, but also grace and compassion?
For more than 25 years, Marvin Olasky has offered this kind of viewpoint in his columns as the Editor-in-Chief of World Magazine, the leading news magazine written with a Christian perspective. In this collection of far-ranging columns, Olasky's commentary on world events and affairs, as well as his own personal interactions, encourages readers to respond with both grace and truth in every encounter.
A leading voice for standing for biblical truth in the public square, Olasky also believes Christians should incorporate the biblical virtues of humility, kindness, and mercy in all of life. His call for biblical values to include both truth and mercy makes his voice stand out in a world that often falsely divides those goals and settles for a poor imitation of the robust Christianity described in Scripture. These short and punchy columns offer readers a new way to consider challenges in today's world and shows them how to respond to any encounter biblically, but not hysterically, providing a wake-up call for the complacent, while also calming the frantic.
Marvin Olasky is editor-in-chief of "World News Group," a distinguished chair in journalism and public policy at Patrick Henry College, and the author of more than twenty books, including "Compassionate Conservatism" and "The Tragedy of American Compassion." He and his wife, Susan, have four sons and five grandchildren.
"World View" is a book filled with so much information and wisdom to help guide us in living in today's society. The lines can be blurry as far as living in the world, but not becoming a part of the world and living out our beliefs and to God's standards. There are so many topics covered in this book, and each one is addressed in only a few pages, so the information is concise and a quick go-to when you need a little guidance on something specific. Some of the topics addressed are: political parties, marriage, education and immigration. Olasky does a good job with addresses the issues and sharing Godly wisdom. With the layout of the book, it is so easy to find information that you are needing/looking for right at the moment, making this a great resource to have and refer to when needed. This is a great read for Christians with how society is at this time, as it is can be overwhelming, confusing and just at times difficult to live how you believe you should be.
