Worldviews in Conflict by Kevin Swanson will introduce high school students to the works and worldviews of some of the world's most influential thinkers and writers. The first part of the book covers 'Worldviews in Philosophy' with chapters covering works by Thomas Aquinas, Rene Descartes, Karl Marx, Ralph Waldo Emerson, John Dewey, Sartre, and others. The second portion covers 'Worldviews in Literature' and covers Shakespeare, Hawthorne, Twain, Hemingway, and Steinbeck. The final chapter, 'Pandora's Machine,' covers 'Worldviews in Culture.'

Featuring selected readings and summaries of over 15 philosophers and authors, chapters include analysis of their works along with biblical references and truths to help equip students to be able to argue against the humanist worldview. Each chapter ends with assignments that include vocabulary words and their definitions and in-depth study questions. In the last chapter students will study film, music and media; students are given a short summary and quote from famous movies and songs and asked to identify the 'Great' philosopher and the ideas that lie behind the excerpt.

Emphasizing the danger of uncritically reading the 'great' thinkers and writers without an explicitly Christian lens, this text will familiarize students with the thoughts and writings that have 'undermined the Christian foundations in the West.' Linking secular and Christian high school and college educations to the 'apostasy' of the current age, this text is designed to be carefully used in the hope of strengthening students' spiritual well-being, not destroying them.

Grades 11-12. 632 pages with glossary, hardcover.
