When The Universe Next Door was first introduced more than twenty years ago, it set the standard for a clear, readable introduction to worldviews. In concise, easily understood prose, James W.

Later editions have been updated and expanded to include important sections on Marxism, secular humanism, New Age philosophy, and postmodernism. The Universe Next Door has been translated into many languages and has been used as a text at over one hundred colleges and universities in courses ranging from apologetics and world religions to history and English literature. This latest edition will continue to aid students, teachers and anyone who wants to understand the variety of worldviews that compete with Christianity.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“To think intelligibly today is to think worldviewishly, to come to terms with the mosaic of meaning systems which make up modern thinking. This book is a clear introduction and an invaluable guide.” Os Guinness 
“If you are looking for an introductory exposition of prominent worldviews, I know of no better book.” Nicholas Wolterstorff
“Grover Gardner, who is never one to disappoint his readers, doesn’t miss a beat in this production. Sire’s work is an easy-to-read work, and Gardner reads as though he is the author. He has the confidence of someone who has command of his subject. His subtly expressive voice is deliberate, but never pedantic.” AudioFile
