Every worldview is a story. Each has an author, a beginning, and an end.

Christ or Chaos is a survey of the Christian story, the biblical view of the world, set against the backdrop of one of its most popular and aggressive foes: secularism. This four-session study, based on the Crossway book "Christ or Chaos," explores the foundations of the Christian view of reality framed by four words: Creation, Separation, Incarnation, and Regeneration.

Explore the landscape of the Christian worldview in this four-session video series centered around the fundamental elements of a biblical perspective of reality: Creation, Separation, Incarnation, and Regeneration. The leader’s guide includes reproducible lessons for use by small group leaders, tips for leading the study, an outline of the material covered in the videos, options for additional reading and study, and discussion questions.

Four approximately 30 minute teaching sessions from author Dan DeWitt presenting the Christ or Chaos material to a group of college students. Dan’s real passion in life is to present and illustrate the explanatory power of the gospel for young adults. The beloved Christian author C.S. Lewis once said, “I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” Like Lewis, Dan believes it is the gospel that makes the best sense out of the world we live, the values we hold, and the lives we hope to lead.

About Christ or Chaos

Is Christianity irrational?

Atheists often say that it is. But does such a charge really stand up to close scrutiny? This book follows the story of Thomas, a junior in college, as he wrestles with the claims of those who think the Christian faith is nothing more than a collection of ancient myths with little connecting to reality. Whether you are facing objections to your faith for the first time, simply discussing your faith with unbelieving friends, or doubting your faith altogether, you might be surprised to discover that Christianity actually offers a more compelling explanation of what it means to be human than atheism could ever hope to provide.


Dan DeWitt (PhD, Southern Seminary) is the dean of Boyce College, the undergraduate school of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he teaches courses on worldview, philosophy, apologetics, and C. S. Lewis.


“Dan DeWitt is a sharp, rigorous thinker who can communicate deep truths in a way people can grasp. This book shows the way forward in the struggle between Christ and our reigning secularist cultural mood. Buy three copies of this book. Get one copy for an unbelieving friend, to think through the claims of Christ. Get one for a young Christian, unsure of his or her faith. And then read one copy yourself, to equip you to engage your neighbors with the credible good news of Jesus Christ.”
Russell Moore, President, The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission; author, Onward

“Dan DeWitt has written a pithy, intelligent, and delightfully readable book that takes aim at—and hits squarely—the old questions raised by the so-called new atheists. Having debated atheists Christopher Hitchens, Michael Shermer, and Daniel Dennett, I can say authoritatively that DeWitt has neither oversimplified nor overcomplicated the issues. Every serious-minded Christian would do well to read this book.”
Larry Taunton, Executive Director, Fixed Point Foundation

“A wonderfully accessible book, perfect not only for college students, but for seekers and doubters as well. Dan takes sophisticated reasoning on some of the most difficult questions and really puts it on the bottom shelf.”
J. D. Greear, Lead Pastor, The Summit Church, Durham, North Carolina; author, Gaining By Losing
