Forming a Worldview with David Mahler
Explore how one man's worldview, through rationalism, unexpectedly changed and the consequences that ensued.
Does Bible prophecy point to divine authorship? Are there contradictions in the Bible? Is Hell a just punishment for unbelievers? Does God exist?
Formerly settled questions, once again, came to the forefront of the authors mind following his brother's sudden death.
This short book explores the author's personal journey, from republican to libertarian and, more importantly, from evangelical Christian to agnostic. Beyond his story, he makes a case for his current worldview and, as a way of a warning, argues against the Bible's divinity. For those resolved under no circumstance to abandon their beliefs, no book, including this one will sway. It is his hope, such individuals will come to accept and appreciate a position they do not hold.
"A compelling, irresistible book about the author’s philosophical and existential journey, ‘Forming a Worldview’ is one of those books I wish I had written myself. Mahler’s sharp wit cuts through the BS and shines on every page of this book—he will take you on a mind-blowing ride that can leave you questioning your own complacent beliefs.
Mahler writes with refreshing candor, sharing memories of his childhood and youth—the backstory, as it is, to his life-changing decision to pursue answers to questions that have been nagging him. I admire the author’s courage in “slaying the monsters of myth and fallacy”—it is no easy feat to choose a path different from those taken by your own loved ones. What’s more, he writes with a rare clarity that hits your head with truth. I could also deeply relate with the author’s own experience, having lost my own brother to heart failure four years ago—the same questions he grappled with were very similar to my own, although my decision to abandon all falsehood started many years before my brother’s death.
