Brian J. Walsh Í 3 summary Transforming Vision Shaping a Christian World View review í eBook or Kindle ePUB Science technology and economic growth motivate our society Each is carried on with little regard for Christian concerns Brian Walsh and Richard Middleton yearn for change They long to see Christ. For someone working in Christian campus ministry this is probably one of those books I should have read ten years ago That said as I read I realized that these ideas had permeated enough other writers that I already had a decent grasp of where they would go This book came out a few decades ago and thus can be gotten very cheap used on In it Walsh and Middleton define worldviews then lay out a biblical worldview and a modernsecular worldview The final section is a call to action for Christians to overcome a sacredsecular dichotomy and realize that their faith applies to all areas of lifeIn essence God may call pastors and missionaries but God also calls engineers and teachers and everyone else God cares about all these things and our duty as Christians is to bring our faith to bear in such areas So for example a Christian running a business ought to resist the modern view that profit is all that matters in the end and should seek to care for employees One thing that was fascinating was that one of the examples they used most was care for the environment Nowadays such a call might be seen as liberal by the targeted audience of this book but the fact is that the Bible is uit clear in our call to care for God s creation Also I am pretty sure many in the targeted audience continue to care about the environment as the ultra politicized evangelicals of the religious right are probably not reading this bookWhat was most interesting was their story of the rise of the modern world and secularism Clearly drawing on Francis Schaeffer they argue that there was an inherent duality in Greek thought that bled into medieval Christianity Auinas Such thinking divided the world into sacred priests church God stuff and nature farming daily life Eventually nature simply pushed out God and we were left with the naturalism and secularism of the modern world But if you read the likes of Charles Taylor Thomas Pfau and others Alasdair McIntyre the view is that the medieval world actually functioned uite well by offering two paths of spirituality a fast path for some monks and a slower path but still a valid path for others farmers It was the Reforming movements that sought to lift everyone up to make all the secular world sacred which ironically led to secularism for by trying to lift it all up it all came downIn essence there are two stories One sees the roots of secularism in medieval Catholicism while the other sees the roots in Reforming movements Essentially Catholics blame Protestants and Protestants blame Catholics Personally I think the TaylorPfau view has going for it and I wonder if WalshMiddleton rewrote this book in light of their works if they d tell the story differentlyBecause really the story of how we got here does not affect their main thesis Overall this is a fantastic book that all Christian pastors and educators should read
