    Written in textbook style (actually condensed from the "Understanding the Times" textbook and curriculum for high-school students), this book earns a very literal "worth my time" rating. Not written to inspire, but to inform, The Battle for Truth is an even-handed comparison of the secular humanist, Marxist, cosmic humanist (New Age) and Christian world views in disciplines of theology, economics, biology, and so on.

It relies extensively on quotes and ideas from self-proclaimed proponents of each world view, to give each a fair hearing. One minor criticism of the book is its typeface which was small and hard to read. Perhaps a hardback or large print edition would be easier to read. And maybe I'm just getting old.

    A fantastic introduction to worldview in which Noebel conmpares and contrasts a Biblical Christian worldview with Secular Humanist, Marxist and New Age worldviews. His approach is to look at the Theology, Philosophy, Biology, Psychology, Ethics, Law, Politics, Economics and History of each worldview. He demonstrates how the theology and philosophy of each worldview impacts thinking on the other worldview categories he speaks of.

    Simple structure - compares Christianity, secular humanism, New Age religion and Marxism in 10 different areas, ranging from belief in God, politics, history, etc. I think it's probably dated somewhat - I'm not sure Marxism is huge on the list of opponents to Christianity any more (though I could be wrong). Though useful to look through if you never considered Christianity to be a philosophy that applies to all areas of life.

    This book is a must-read for any Christian who wants to gain a basic understanding of the worldviews that are challenging Christianity in the world today. As one Christian to another, I would urge people to read this to help themselves to understand the times in which we live and to be able to "give a reason for the hope you have."

    It didn't really help that I read this in 8th grade, so all the brilliant knowledge flew straight over my head. It didn't really help that I read this in 8th grade, so all the brilliant knowledge flew straight over my head.
