Book Summary of Creation Regained by Albert M. Wolters


“This book is an attempt to spell out the content of a biblical worldview and its significance for our lives as we seek to be obedient to the Scriptures.” (p. 1)

The term worldview came into the English language from the German language, and it does not mean the same thing as philosophy or theology. A worldview is a “life-perspective” or a “confessional vision” (p. 2). Some might even call it an “ideology” (p. 2). Essentially, a worldview is a “comprehensive framework of one’s basic beliefs about things” (p. 2).

All people have a worldview, and it is important for Christians to ground theirs in the Bible. When the Bible and the Bible alone is the foundation for one’s worldview, “This scripturally informed worldview is sometimes called ‘reformational’” (p. 1). 

A biblical, reformational worldview recognizes the authority of the Scriptures, the inherent goodness of God’s creation, the depth and consequence of human sin, and the extent of the redemption secured by Jesus on the cross. The aim of this book is to detail the specific parts of a biblical, reformational worldview.
