World View: Seeking Grace and Truth in Our Common Life (New Growth Press, November 2017)

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.

  • This was a refreshing book and compelling to read

  • These columns are a good resource for thinking Christians. It is not a book one would read cover to cover. I suggest readers look at the index and read articles on topics of interest. The essays are a good example of how Christians can reason through issues.

  • Certainly worthwhile for conservatives and liberals alike. Olasky is unabashedly conservative; fellow right-of-center readers will find an ally in him, while left-of-center readers may find common ground or opportunities for further dialogue.

    World View is a powerful book. It really got me thinking about how I present myself as a Christian and how my views are approached. I love how it is broken up into small chapters each with a theme. It can be read all at once or broken down daily. They are broken up by topic of articles he has written over the years. There are chapter about protesting, politics, opinions, world views, hard hitting topics of our time and more.

  • This is an excellent book that will get you thinking. i didn’t always agree with the thoughts, but I did enjoy that it got me thinking.

  • This is a book I almost didn’t read and that would’ve been a totally miss on my part! I was really surprised at how much I liked this book. I think they choose great articles to combine together in one book. I found myself nodding throughout it! Easy to read as each article is only a couple of pages.

  • When Christians are attacked for their beliefs or morals, it is best to respond with a truthful but graceful voice. Attacking back does no good. The compilations in this book reiterate that. Some of the topics covered are politics, abortion, and race. I found World View to be very insightful and it got me thinking about how I present myself in certain situations.

  • This is articles about the current happening in the world so to dd the biblical ad scripture this makes for a book that Christians will want to check out.

  • While deeply committed to the biblical truth of Scripture, Olasky offers hope for Christians who want to live lovingly and truthfully. His is a vision of the vocation of Christians to lives of humility, kindness, and mercy. That makes this collection a must-read for our political and cultural times.
