Ari's book review: Assupmtions that affect our lives


In his book Assumptions That Affect Our Lives, Christian Overman sets out to dissect the major difference between Greek thought and Biblical thought (or what he call Hebraic thought). Overman helps explain the origins of the age old argument between reason and revelation. Even more importantly, Overman helps the reader to see how these two issues demand our attention because ultimately they will shape our world view. I was personally moved by the chapter in which Overman discusses Greek assumptions and unwanted children. I think this book is a good read for anyone trying to get a clearer understanding of what it means to have a biblical world view. Overman does a good job at getting to the point and not beating around the bush. The book closes out at about a 166 pages, which also includes some study guides. Hope you enjoy.
