We unpack the Worldview Measurement Study with George Barna in a series of interviews on The Reconnect.
How many Americans actually hold Biblical worldview and what does that mean? It is more than head knowledge. George Barna unpacks both the beliefs and behaviors that make up ”the integrated disciple measure” he is studying. For the first time, research is looking at not just stated beliefs, but expands worldview to include integrating beliefs with behavior seeking to be like Christ in everything “we think, say and do.”
We look at two aspects of the worldview study in depth: ideology and theology – what are they and how are they related? Why do we compartmentalize our faith from our politics? Then we see how a compartmentalization of our beliefs explain “how we got here” politically and culturally.
George Barna is a leader in research and ministry and the author of more than 50 books. Through is research, he has served several hundred parachurch ministries, thousands of Christian churches, and many other non-profit and for-profit organizations as well as the U.S. military. He currently serves as the Executive Director of the American Culture and Faith Institute (ACFI), which recently released findings from an extensive study examining the worldview of Americans.
