Worlds Apart is a compendium of the major world views, written from a Christian perspective. The authors introduce the meaning and function of a world view, and then explore the seven major world views of our day: theism, atheism, pantheism, panentheism, deism, finite godism, and polytheism.
In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Worlds Apart are tagged and appear on mouse-over, and all Scripture passages link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “theism” or “atheism.”
