Review of Christ Or Chaos

Christ or Chaos

In his book, Christ or Chaos, Dan Dewitt examines the implications of the two contrasting worldviews of Christianity and Atheism. Utilizing a childhood friendship as an illustration, the author explains the ramifications of college-aged students abandoning the faith of their parents.

Using logic and a healthy dose of C.S. Lewis, once an atheist himself, Dewitt vets fundamental Christian beliefs from creation to the resurrection. It is important to note that the author presupposes that God created the universe. He argues that it takes as much faith, if not more, to adopt an atheistic worldview rather than a biblical one. Dewitt presents his thesis in a reasoned manner and pursues this line of logic by explaining that a purely materialistic view of the world does not provide the moral girding to give life a purpose.

Christ or Chaos is not an exhaustive resource, but it is a concise treatise on some of the basic questions of life and meaning. This book is not meant to be rushed through, but read at a leisurely pace so that the implications can be pondered.

In conclusion, Christ or Chaos is a helpful volume which contrasts two opposing worldviews that each of us must face, and provides Christians a framework for confidence in their faith, as well as an avenue for reaching their unsaved loved ones.

 

I was given a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

    Sounds like a good read, particularly for college-age readers. Dewitt is right about faith: I lacked the blind faith to maintain atheisim, though I came out of college trying very hard. Thanks for reviewing this.
