Publisher's Summary

When The Universe Next Door was first introduced nearly 30 years ago, it set the standard for a clear, readable introduction to worldviews. In concise, easily understood prose, James W. Sire explained the basics of theism, deism, naturalism, nihilism, existentialism, Eastern monism, and the new consciousness. This has been translated into several languages and used as a text at over one hundred colleges and universities in courses ranging from apologetics and world religions to history and English literature.

A great place to begin

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would recommend. Sire presented a basic worldview analysis that was understandable, but excluded complex issues. I do not believe the exclusions of complex topics took away from the validity of the book, however made it easier to comprehend to beginners on the subject matter. The book is not an end all in itself, but a beginning to exploring worldview.
