Here’s your weekend worldview reader for November 6th, 2015, with links to articles, essays, reviews, and videos that I consider to be interesting or important from a biblical worldview perspective. Any work that I point to is not an endorsement, but rather an invitation for you to think deeply about your faith and the world around you.

As you read the following links consider how their content relates to the biblical categories of creation, fall, redemption, and glorification. What do they say about God, Scripture, nature, man, morality, life after death, et cetera? Bon appétit!
