  4. Navigate to the threaded discussion and respond to three of the following four discussion questions/prompts:
    1. Describe the three sets of questions Pearcey describes to ask of a worldview, including Christianity. Identify them and explain in general how can you use them to assess the worldview of a theory, ideology or religion?
    2. Explain how a Christian worldview might impact one’s ideas about family or education as described by Pearcey. What thoughts do you have in response?
    3. Summarize Pearcey’s evaluation of one of the following theories based on the components of a worldview (Marxism, Rouseau, Sanger or Buddhism). Describe an insight you gained from assessing the theory through a worldview lens.
    4. Finally, discuss how you can use a worldview approach to evaluate theories underlying practice or policy interventions as a social worker? Also, how can this approach help you to work with clients, families or groups to evaluate their underlying religious or worldview assumptions and their ethical implications? Explain.
