World View: Seeking Grace and Truth in Our Common

If we reacted to our common culture with not just biblical facts, but also grace and compassion, what would our world be like? Marvin Olasky explores the answer to this question and more in his new book, World View. While regular readers of World Magazine may remember some of the columns contained in World View, never before has a collection of Marvin’s work over the last 25 years been curated like this. These 60 columns cover a wide variety of issues that remain relevant today, ranging from political issues such as immigration and welfare to social issues including homosexuality and racism. Marvin also touches on everyday conversations such as movie reviews, career paths and the impact of Millennials. While reading his commentary, readers will learn a new way to consider and respond to any situation in a way that lives out all biblical virtues, including mercy and grace as well as truth.


World View: Seeking Grace and Truth in Our Common Life (New Growth Press, November 2017)
How could our world be different if Christians were recognized for not only speaking the truth, but also demonstrating mercy?
What would our lives be like if we reacted to our common culture with not just biblical facts, but also grace and compassion?
For more than 25 years, Marvin Olasky has offered this kind of viewpoint in his columns as the Editor-in-Chief of World Magazine, the leading news magazine written with a Christian perspective. In this collection of far-ranging columns, Olasky’s commentary on world events and affairs, as well as his own personal interactions, encourages readers to respond with both grace and truth in every encounter.
A leading voice for standing for biblical truth in the public square, Olasky also believes Christians should incorporate the biblical virtues of humility, kindness, and mercy in all of life. His call for biblical values to include both truth and mercy makes his voice stand out in a world that often falsely divides those goals and settles for a poor imitation of the robust Christianity described in Scripture. These short and punchy columns offer readers a new way to consider challenges in today’s world and shows them how to respond to any encounter biblically, but not hysterically, providing a wake-up call for the complacent, while also calming the frantic.
