As the pages of The World and the Word: Exploring the Lost Cause unfold, there is a kind of internal consistency with both the worldview (social sciences) and the word view (the Bible). However, where such consistency appeared to diverge, this author attempts to filter out the noise by applying critical-thinking criteria to a worldview that may not be consistent with the word view. The goal of this book, therefore, is to provide some exegesis of the word and see how the world fits. Born-again Christians can be credible social scientists and not compromise God's Word, the Bible. While my goal was to prepare a credible manuscript, I take responsibility for any oversights or errors as the book's author. After reading, please send reflective comments to Dr. Herb Green Jr. at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use the phrase "World & Word Lost Cause" in the subject line.
