Overview
Revered anthropologist Paul Hiebert argues that effective missional work must reach beyond behaviors and beliefs to transform worldviews.

Publishers Description
In the past, changes in behavior and in belief have been leading indicators for missionaries that Christian conversion had occurred. But these alone--or even together--are insufficient for a gospel understanding of conversion. For effective biblical mission, Paul G. Hiebert argues, we must add a third element: a change in worldview. Here he offers a comprehensive study of worldview--its philosophy, its history, its characteristics, and the means for understanding it. He then provides a detailed analysis of several worldviews that missionaries must engage today, addressing the impact of each on Christianity and mission. A biblical worldview is outlined for comparison. Finally, Hiebert argues for gospel ministry that seeks to transform people's worldviews and offers suggestions for how to do so.

Reviews - What do customers think about Transforming Worldviews: An Anthropological Understanding of How People Change?

A fantastic and important work  May 30, 2008
Transforming worldviews covers a full range of anthropological ideas and applies them to the concept of worldview. Scholarly in nature, its tone is readable and it applies important and diverse disciplines and concepts to thinking about worldview. This book is a major contribution. It is not just discussion of worldview but how worldviews are formed, how they may be critiqued and how they can be transformed. Very interesting discussions and applications of modernism, postmodernism, semiotics (sign theory), cultural analysis, and "glocalization." Plenty of illustrations and charts that assemble, systematize, illustrate and make understandable a vast array of information.

This book broke away from the typical simple and unhelpful discussions of worldview and places it within its scholarly debate and research. Hiebert deftly applies worldview to Christian missions and church work. He offers significant and helpful insights into ourselves and our culture as well as ways to engage and change.

Personally this work challenged my perceptions of worldview, knowledge and culture while introducing me to many new disciplines and concepts.
