Everyone has a worldview. Whether you’re an atheist or a radical Muslim, you have a set of beliefs that informs the way you see the world.

Whether publicly or privately, everyone attempts to make sense of the world’s dilemmas using their own worldview. Whether that worldview has the human or an angry god at its center, every worldview tries to answer three main questions:

Who am I?

Why am I here?

Why is there evil in the world?

Author Abdu Murray says these are the most pressing questions of human existence, and he’s written the book Grand Central Questions. In the book, he looks at the most popular worldviews of the modern world: pantheism, secular humanism, and Islam.

Murray is a former Muslim lawyer (now a Christian), but he now finds himself able to find answers to the toughest questions that Islam couldn’t provide. He says that by understanding the worldviews and subsequent thought processes of other worldviews, Christians can be much more effective in witnessing to those who espouse them.

He joins Dr. Bill Maier to go in-depth on the worldviews of pantheists, secular humanists, and Muslims, how their way of thinking affects the world, and how to be most effective when witnessing to them:
