Overview

In Love Not the World, Randy Leedy consults Scripture to determine what it means to be in the world, but not of it.

In order to form a biblical definition of “the world,” Leedy examines the concept extensively in both the Old and New Testaments. He says that the source of the world’s power is its prince, the Devil, who strives not only to blind unbelievers, but also to seduce Christians with the delights of the world. Leedy shares Scripture that can help believers discern the world and its subversive influence. He includes charts to compare the elements of several passages at once. For issues that Scripture does not expressly address, Leedy shares the broader biblical principles governing the believer’s relationship to the world.

Spiritual leaders desiring to set a healthy example for their flocks will rejoice to have Love Not the World in their personal libraries.

In the Logos edition, this valuable volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Powerful searches by topic or Scripture help you find exactly what you’re looking for–like every mention of “the world.” With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
