A Three-Dimensional Concept of Worldview
Schultz, Katherine G.; Swezey, James A.
Journal of Research on Christian Education, v22 n3 p227-243 2013
Several Christian school associations and many Christian schools identify developing a Biblical worldview in their students as an essential component of their organizational mission, yet few report on their level of success. This study investigates the concept of worldview from an Evangelical Christian perspective. The first step in investigating worldview is to establish a working definition of the term worldview. A Biblical definition of worldview is a challenge since Scripture does not use the term, but various writers have defined the term with language that is Biblically relevant. This study used the definition of "worldview" as derived by James W. Sire in 2004 as the basis for a three-dimensional conception of worldview. The dimensions are propositional, behavioral, and heart-orientation.
