Some comments and observations following ‘The Great William Lane Craig Original Sin Flamewar of 2010–2011′.

As part of my efforts toward establishing a set of comprehensive apologetics resources for lay Christians in New Zealand, centered around the Thinking Matters ministry, I’m working on a second edition to my hastily-released book The Wisdom of God. My particular focus is on making it more accessible by (i) improving the writing style and (ii) weeding out redundancy and wordiness while introducing more down-to-earth illustrations, examples, and definitions. One of the changes I’m considering, on which I’d like some feedback, is renaming the subtitle of the book from “a systematic introduction to biblical apologetics” (which frankly, while terse and accurate is rather unappetizing) to “an introduction to proving the Christian worldview”. My question is: is this a better subtitle? If not, what would you, the lay reader, suggest? Is the word “worldview” generally understood nowadays, or does it need explaining? And, more generally, what other suggestions can you offer regarding making the book a more readable, useful resource for lay Christians?
