I think some people may be able to pick up some theology they never had before. However, they would probably come away with a better worldview just by studying a simple theology book like Essential Truths of the Christian Faith by RC Sproul or like the Heidelberg Catechism, or something like that.

I think verses were pulled out of their context to support certain ideas.

For instance Revelation 2:5 was used in tour #10 called the "The American Experiment".

Revelation 2
5Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.



The may be a verse about repentance but I cannot see how it can be used in the way Dr. Tackett used it. I am not sure if he was addressing the church in general to repent of their lack of care for America, so that God would not take away the lampstand...... but how does that work ? That verse is speaking to the Church of Ephesus and the preceding verses mean something that make that verse make sense.

That is precisely where I have a problem with this entire series. I think the spiritual kingdom is confused with the political kingdom.


There are some interesting tidbits of information about Darwinism, philosophy, and American History, but the application of this series is very confusing.

I don't really know why Sproul endorsed it. It seems to water down the theology in order to make it applicable to a broad audience. Things like the will of man, and God's sovereignty, are not taught well in this series.


I went looking for some answers about my own worldview and I bumped into a truth about God's Providence along the way. Sometimes God's providence is not delightful, such as Paul being shipwrecked. It still is God's providence.

I think the church needs to read the bible for what it says. Understand what it says about how to run a church and how to evangelize. Maybe if we relied on the preaching of God's Word, prayer, the sacraments, we might see change.

I think this worldview series will be outdated in no time. However, the scripture will still be relevant as always to all cultures, and people. It speaks to man about sin, grace, salvation, sanctification, glorification, providence. It tells us about Jesus Christ and the promises of God.

Our citizenship is in heaven.

Well that's what I think.
