The introductory material is about worldview in general term, including its definition, necessity, elements, worldview in Natural Sciences, Social Sciences, and Humanities, the structure of its justification, and the distinctiveness of Christian worldview in special term. Since Christian theology in its dogmatic system is the substance of the Christian worldview, students will be introduced, in this introductory part, to theology and its significance in building and shaping Christian worldview. The foundational role of the Holy Scripture for theology and worldview will also be explained in terms of its revelational characteristic in the context of its organic interrelationship with other organs of revelation, its infallibility, its historical reliability, its canonization, its interpretation, and its function as the epistemic principium for conveying the knowledge of God and creation. The knowledge of God, which is rooted in the Holy Scripture, as the substance of Christian understanding of all things, will be elaborated in terms of its possibility, its certainy, its content which is consisted of His existence, His being, His attributes: communicable and incommunicable, His Triunity, His decrees, and His works of creation and providence, and its metaphysical and epistemic implications.The main thrust of the elaboration is on the knowledge of God that may lead to a deeper personal relationship with him for a better understanding and practice of his will.
