Two Competing Worldviews

A cataclysmic change has occurred over the past few decades. Our culture as a whole has switched worldviews.

According to Peter Jones, all the religions and philosophies of the world can be divided into two basic worldviews. These two perspectives differ on the fundamental nature of reality. Is everything essentially one? Or does an irreducible distinction exist between creation and Creator?

In The Other Worldview, Jones explains the difference between what he calls “Oneism” and “Twoism.” He exposes the pagan roots of Oneism, and he traces its spread and influence throughout Western culture. Most importantly, he shows us why Oneism is incapable of saving anyone or truly changing the world for the better.

“For bodily holiness and transformed thinking . . . we depend entirely on one amazing thing: the incredibly powerful message of the Gospel to a sinful world, which is the ultimate expression and goal of Twoism. The only hope is in Christ alone.”

Praise for The Other Worldview

A must-read for every concerned American—and especially for every Christian who weeps at the graveside of his culture.

From the foreword by R.C. Sproul, founder and chairman of Ligonier Ministries

In The Other Worldview, Peter Jones argues that the ills of modern culture stem from its denial of the biblical creator-creature distinction. Peter has made this case before, but here he presents his most substantial, detailed, and illuminating account of this modern consciousness, from ancient paganism and Gnosticism to such modern thinkers as Carl Jung. In the end Peter shows how the biblical gospel of salvation from sin in Christ provides the only adequate challenge to neo-pagan “oneism” and the only way for us to know God as he really is.

—John M. Frame, J.D. Trimble Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary

For over two decades, Peter Jones’s work has proven indispensable for any Christian who wants to understand how to reach the pagan West with the gospel of Jesus Christ. In The Other Worldview, he helps readers see that there really are only two options available for how we view reality; Christianity and everything else. With the rare and enviable gift of being able to make complex ideas accessible, Dr. Jones shows that the other worldview, in its varied expressions, cannot withstand intellectual scrutiny.

—Gabriel Fluhrer, Senior Minister, Shiloh Orthodox Presbyterian Church
