Christianity is more than a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is also a worldview that answers life's basic questions and shows us how we should live as a result of those answers.

True Christianity goes far beyond John 3:16?beyond private faith and personal salvation. It is nothing less than a framework for understanding all of reality. It is a worldview. In How Now Shall We Live?, the 2000 Gold Medallion winner for best book about Christianity and society, Chuck Colson and Nancy Pearcey show that the great spiritual battle today is a cosmic struggle between competing worldviews.

The well-known story of Charles Colson's transformation from President Richard Nixon's "hatchet man" who was "incapable of humanitarian thoughts" to founder of the Prison Fellowship Ministries and internationally recognized Christian author and speaker is a triumph of God finding a man and a man finding God. His 1973 conversion to Christianity was followed by a guilty plea to obstruction of justice and a seven-month prison sentence in 1974. He founded Prison Fellowship Ministries in 1976, fulfilling a promise made to fellow inmates that he would "never forget those behind bars."
Charles Colson's first book, Born Again, was released in 1976 and instantly became an international bestseller. He has authored many books that have collectively sold more than five million copies worldwide, including Justice That Restores; How Now Shall We Live?; Burden of Truth, Answers to Your Kids; Gideon's Torch; Why America Doesn't Work; Kingdoms in Conflict; and Loving God.
He is also a columnist, international speaker, and commentator on a national radio broadcast. He received the prestigious Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion in 1993 and donated the $1 million prize to the Prison Fellowship's Endowment Fund.

This book provides very well defined guidelines for us to live in our culture, engage with it, but not conform to it, as espoused by a missional lifestyle. For even greater depth, read it with "Total Truth" (also by Pearcey). A different worldview is presented here in contrast to the captive, struggling hyper-traditionalism or the "everything goes" liberalism that is sweeping our nations. What if God wanted to redeem EVERYTHING for His glory, and use us, His people, to engage and excel in every facet of human culture and experience from language, the arts, entertainment, literature etc..? Yep, check it out.
Charles Colson, the founder of Prison Fellowship and Angel Tree, is one of my favorite authors. His book 'How Now Shall We Live' is both engaging and relevant. It tackles the issue of worldviews, and how they influence every facet of life. Colson argues that Christianity is a worldview which is able to make a tangible difference in society. He encourages readers using a series of testimonies from the lives of other believers, to guide theological discussion. Whilst this book is accessible for all lay readers, it has depth which proves valuable for all.
