WORLDVIEWS ON TRIAL
What is the nature of reality? What does it mean to be human? And how do we account  for ethics and morality?
In this wide-ranging and perceptive study, Mary Poplin examines these questions and more in light of the four major worldviews: naturalism, humanism, pantheism and Judeo-Christian the-ism. She explores the fundamental assumptions of each, pressing for limitations. If reality is secular, that means something for how we orient our lives. But if reality is not best explained by secular perspectives, that would mean something quite different. Consider for yourself what is the fundamental substance of reality.

FROM THE FORWARD BY DALLAS WILLARD
Is Reality Secular?
is a challenge, by an insider, to the secularism that is now assumed, with no signifi-cant evaluation, to be the height of intellectual respectability and that dominates the most elevated and most inclusive levels of higher edu-cation. From there it pervades pro-fessional, social and official life in our world. . . . The line of argument she develops in this book is vital for the future of education today and tomorrow, both for secularists and for Christians. . . . Mary breaks the impasse between secularists and Christians by intelligently refram-ing the questions that must be asked and answered for thoughtful and honest living today.
PRAISE FOR
IS REALITY SECULAR? 
“It is unusual these days for a book to be both  provocative and reflective, but that is precisely what Professor Poplin has accomplished in
Is Reality Secular?
The roots of her reflection are clearly in what began as a personal quest  for meaning and truth, but she has produced an extended essay that addresses a universal long-ing and therefore speaks to us all.” 
 —Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University
“Mary Poplin and I take very different sides on the topics discussed in her book. That is why I prize her writings, because they are so fair and comprehensive. She shows me clearly what I must grapple with and defeat—or give up and join her side!” 
 —Michael Ruse, Lucyle T. Werkmeister Professor of Philosophy, Florida State University
