Guidelines for Developing a Discerning Commitment to Communicating the Christian Faith through our Conduct and Conversation
“World View – Seeking Grace and Truth in Our Common Life” is made up of a collection of columns from World Magazine. These theme-based articles challenge us as a reader to reexamine changes in institutions and causes we have advocated and defended, and to recognize where we may need to make changes in our perspectives.
In an era of insecurity, economic uncertainty, and widespread injustices, Olasky choreographs the reader step by step through the basics of demonstrating a Christian World View on the themes of institutions, racial reconciliation, environmentalism, and immigration. He encourages the reader to consider being emphatic but passionate, with an emphasis on humility and humanity, while creating an atmosphere of harmonious tension.
Marvin Olasky, bestselling author and editor in chief of World Magazine, is also highly recognized for his excellence in journalism, educational endeavors, and leadership in community efforts. Dr. Olasky’s The Tragedy of American Compassion was named as one of “eight books that changed America” by Philanthropy magazine.
Dr. Olasky’s writing provides a balance of heartfelt conviction and reflective compassion, expressed through a genuine attitude of humility. Olasky’s Insight inspires the reader to take positive action, in areas of ethical commitments and biblical precepts. His compassion captures my own, often unspoken, deep convictions.
