Christian Worldview: Teaching & Learning

A  Christian worldview is the framework of ideas and beliefs from which Christians view reality and make sense of life, the world, and their relationship with God. What does it mean to be a Christian scholar and how does Christianity impact the physical, emotional, intellectual, vocational, and spiritual dimensions of our lives? This Libguide offers a comprehensive listing of James White Library resources about faith, teaching, and learning from a Christian perspective.

Different Worldviews

  • Agnosticism:  The view or belief that the existence of God, of the divine or the supernatural, is unknown or unknowable.
  • Apatheism: The attitude of apathy toward the existence or non-existence of God or another higher power.
  • Atheism: The rejection of the belief that any deities exist.
  • Deism: The belief in the existence of God solely based on rational thought without any reliance on revealed religions or religious authority.
  • Existentialism: A form of philosophical inquiry that explores the issue of human existence.
  • Humanism: A philosophical stance that emphasizes the individual and social potential, and agency of human beings, whom it considers that starting point for serious moral and philosophical inquiry.
  • Naturalism: The idea or belief that only natural laws and forces (as opposed to supernatural ones) operate in the universe.
  • Nihilism: The view that rejects generally accepted or fundamental aspects of human existence, such as objective truth, knowledge, morality, values, or meaning.
  • Panentheism: The belief that the divine intersects every part of the universe and also extends beyond space and time.
  • Pantheism: The belief that reality, the universe, and the cosmos are identical to divinity and a supreme being or entity.
  • Polytheism: The belief in multiple deities, which are usually assembled into a pantheon of gods and goddesses, along with their own religious sects and rituals.
  • Relativism: The view that denies claims to objectivity within a particular domain and assert that valuations in that domain are relative to the perspective of an observer or the context in which they are assessed.
  • Theism: The belief in the existence of at least one deity.
