The Worldview Study Bible raises this insightful issue:

“Christians must be different from the world.” Whenever we hear this statement in sermons or read it in books, we usually think about our behavior, right?

Point - Thinking - Christians - Worldview - Study

That is a fantastic point. But how are we to develop our thinking as Christians? The new Worldview Study Bible is one tool to help—and it succeeds admirably.

Worldview - Matter - Thought - Transformation - Romans

Trevin Wax, one of the general editors, makes this point in his article for the study Bible, “An Introduction to a Christian Worldview”:

God left us with something better than a simple list of commands. He gave us renewed minds that–through the power of his Spirit–will be able to discern what actions we should take.
