The Worldview Frame
Read the Prologue and Chapter 1 of Ted Dekker’s book, Chosen. You will be taking what you observed in your reading and attempting to begin to formulate the intended worldview within this story. The reality is that this is going to be hard. An author does not often reveal all of these elements within the first chapter. However, I don’t want that to deter you from trying to think on this deeper level. The worldview framework elements are listed below again for your reference. I want you to take what you read from Dekker’s work and respond to each element in three or more sentences (for each part – for a total of 12 sentences or more). If you cannot find the element present in the reading so far, I want you to say why and what would be needed for you to see that element present. Please include any quotations from the reading to support your conclusions. You will need to cite your source in MLA format as well. • Creation – Where did we come from and who are we? How did things come about? • Fall – What has gone wrong with the world? How did it get broken? • Redemption – How can it be fixed? What can we do to fix it? • Fulfillment – What was it supposed to be about to being with?
