Product description


"Watkin does much more than round up the usual proof texts: he rather calls our attention to biblical patterns that diagonally cut through taken-for-granted false dichotomies. . . . Take up and take heed." --Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Research Professor of Systematic Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"Tears down false dichotomies in philosophy and lifts up treasures of truth. . . .This book helps us to inhabit biblical worlds of thought so that we can see, interpret, and reach our world with the gospel." --Trevin Wax, Bible and Reference Publisher, LifeWay Christian Resources

"Just brilliant! . . . In a rare combination, Watkin shows us at the deepest level what it means to read the world through the Word, but in a way that is genuinely accessible. His demonstrations of biblical patterns and structures are incredibly helpful." --Dan Strange, Lecturer in Culture, Religion and Public Theology, Oak Hill College

"Offers a radical and trenchant critique of contemporary culture and a well-grounded alternative shaped by the Christian Scriptures. I regard this slim volume as a seminal work, and I predict that it will become a classic of its kind." --Albert M. Wolters, Author, Creation Regained

"One of the most refreshing books I have read in a long time. With deceptive simplicity, Watkin defends exegetical, theological, and philosophical verities that are much needed in today's discussions." --William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary
