Worldview as Worship
The Dynamics of a Transformative Christian Education
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"If you are a Christian educator passionate about seeing your students' lives transformed, this book is a 'must read.' Baumann suggests that true worldview transformation is the result of living in community and cooperation, supported by an apprenticeship model of teaching and learning. This book is as relevant for Christian educators in P-12 as for faculty in colleges and universities."
-Rhoda C. Sommers
Dean, School of Education and Human Development
"For more than twenty years Baumann's creative and inspirational teaching has helped teenagers, university students, and young adults 'develop a more consistent and all-encompassing biblical worldview in their own lives.' Now his simple but powerful biblical insights are available in this thoughtful and clearly written format that can help Christian educators better achieve the worldview transformation that we long for in our students and our selves."

"An educator's beliefs create altars in the classroom. Teachers are instructional priests, their beliefs impacting generations. If Christian higher education expects to be distinctive, professors will be helped by Worldview as Worship. Dr. Baumann enables a biblically transcendent orientation to education, maintaining that Christian community is essential for transformed Christian thinking. Everyone worships, everyone believes, and classroom beliefs will create worldviews which students worship."

"Eddie Baumann has issued a much needed clarion call for Christian educators to understand anew that transformative Christian schooling must aim at the heart of each student. Discipleship, education, and worship are properly centered in the biblical concepts of justice, compassion, and shalom."
