Where to Purchase


At a time when Christian belief is constantly challenged, understanding different worldviews can help Christians think and live faithfully. Kenneth Samples's own life-and-death crisis encourages believers to develop a worldview perspective based on truth, critical thinking, and logic. In A World of Difference, he addresses the historic Christian worldview and evaluates four modern-day competitors--Islam, naturalism, postmodernism, and pantheistic monism. The use of nine distinct and challenging tests shows how all worldviews should be assessed.

With compelling insight into Scripture, history, science, and theology, A World of Difference will challenge and strengthen your beliefs.


"America is more divided today than at any time since the civil war. And make no mistake about it. The root division is not political, economical or racial. It is a division of worldview. Christians can no longer afford to be ignorant of how to think and see the world in light of their worldview and alternative worldviews. A World of Difference is the right book at the right time. Characteristic of Samples, the book covers all the major issues in an intellectually responsible yet interesting and readable way. I highly recommend it."--J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University and author of Kingdom Triangle

"One of my biggest concerns for Christians struggling to make their way through the intellectual challenges of our age is that they often don't have the basic categories to think biblically about their own faith. This is also the case when they interact with competing truth claims. Ken Samples's A World of Difference will give them those categories. Ken Samples is a clear thinker and a gifted writer. This is an important and useful book for all thinking Christians."
--Kim Riddlebarger, cohost, The White Horse Inn; author, A Case for Amillennialism and The Man of Sin
