Here’s your first weekend worldview reader of 2016 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.

At the end of this month my new book Christ or Chaos releases with Crossway. Look for an update soon about a four-session video study that can be used for individual or small group study based on the book. Both the book and the study will launch on January 31st.  The study kit will include four 30-minute videos, a leader’s guide, a discussion guide, and promotional graphics for digital or print use.
