Biblical Worldview Series

More than ever before, Christians need to be grounded in the truths of God’s Word and be prepared to articulate them in a winsome manner. By applying the Bible and the historical teachings of the church to a wide range of relevant issues—including voting, religious liberty, abortion, marriage, and sexuality—the Biblical Worldview Series helps Christians fulfill the exhortation of 1 Peter 3:15 to always be prepared to make a defense for what we believe.

biblical principles for political engagement

resource summary:

Politics, properly understood, is about how groups of humans organize their affairs. By examining God’s Word and exploring the divinely-instituted role of government, this publication explains why Christians ought to be politically engaged and how to do so in a manner consistent with a biblical worldview. It also offers advice to pastors on navigating sensitive moral questions and shepherding their congregations well.

biblical principles for human sexuality

resource summary:

Our culture increasingly regards Christian sexual ethics as bigoted and outdated. By surveying key passages of Scripture and consulting the wisdom of theologians throughout church history, this publication helps Christians who are committed to God's Word respond to our culture’s modern objections to the church's historic teaching on human sexuality and marriage.

biblical principles for human sexuality

The rapidly changing moral landscape of the twenty-first century presents a daunting challenge for Christians committed to biblical sexual ethics. In a relatively short amount of time, the moral framework undergirding Western culture has been upended, and a revolution in morality has overturned centuries of norms concerning the family, marriage, and human sexuality.

But secular culture is not the only challenger of Christian sexual ethics. Increasingly, theologically liberal churches and denominations are raising objections to the church's historic teaching on marriage. These denominations insist that the Bible allows for a wide range of interpretations. As a result, Christians—and especially pastors—face mounting pressure to compromise or at least downplay the Bible's teaching on human sexuality.

The moral revolution has raised questions and challenged long-standing presuppositions about sexuality. How should Christians who are committed to God's Word and a biblical sexual ethic respond? What responsibility do pastors and those called to shepherd the church have when it comes to these contested issues? What does the Bible teach about marriage and homosexuality? How can Christians practice a biblical ethic that is marked by both truth and love?

This publication will help today's Christians answer these questions by surveying key passages of Scripture that speak directly to human sexuality, as well as consulting the wisdom of pastors and theologians throughout church history.

biblical principles for Pro-Life Engagement

resource summary:

Does the Bible teach that life begins at conception or birth? Is abortion murder? On these questions and others, we believe the Bible has a clear word. By surveying key passages of Scripture and consulting the wisdom of theologians throughout church history, this publication helps Christians think biblically about abortion and the question of personhood.

biblical principles for religious liberty

resource summary:

Religious liberty is the freedom to hold religious beliefs of one’s choosing and to live in accordance with those beliefs. By citing evidence from key passages of Scripture and consulting the wisdom of Christian leaders and thinkers throughout history, this publication explains why the Bible can be understood to provide a strong theological foundation for supporting religious liberty and conscience protection.
