This book introduces Christian worldview apologetics. It applies worldview principles to engage Advaita Vedanta Hinduism with the biblical responses of Christianity. The Christian worldview focus is as much theological as philosophical. Chapter one introduces the biblical mandate for apologetics, reviewing the historical and contemporary apologetic scene. It highlights diverse methodological principles in worldview apologetics, laying the groundwork for the method employed. Chapter two introduces Vedanta Hinduism through the teachings of Sankara, Ramanuja, and Madhva. This is a primer for those unfamiliar with Advaita. Chapter three examines Christian rapprochement and antithesis with Vedanta Hinduism. The apologist applies worldview apologetics in understanding the access points and biblical dividing lines when these two worldviews confront one another. Chapter four commences the apologetic engagement with proof. The Advaitin presents the monistic worldview and the ultimate reality, otherwise known as Brahman. The foundational Christian worldview is represented with the scriptures, God, man, and his salvation in Jesus Christ. Chapter five addresses the offense part of apologetics. The adherents of each worldview contrast their viewpoints against the viewpoint of the other system. Vedanta's monism, impersonal reality, inclusivity, and rationality are contrasted with Christianity's historic self-revelation of God to man. Chapter six handles apologetic defense through the lens of experience, epistemology, and correspondence with reality. The Hindu worldview has transcending experience, supra-rational epistemology, and deep coherence. The Christian admits a transitory universe, which has no existence as a contingent creation, apart from God. Chapter seven reviews worldview apologetic practice under metaphysics, epistemology, and ethics. These deal with the ontology of reality in its manifestations and our understandin 1.

Travis Anderson has a psychic gift. Or so he thinks. So far he's used his premonitions only to acquire an upper-middle-class lifestyle - pretty wife, big house, and a shiny Range Rover - without having to make any real effort. But recent visions threaten his yuppie contentment and a series of inaccurate and horrifying prophecies humiliate him in front of his fellow country club members. The IRS pulls Travis's number, too, demanding an audit of his sloppy bookkeeping. Drowning in mounting financial problems and apparent mental illness, Travis tries booze and pills to stay afloat, but nothing, not even golf, works. Travis is in danger of losing his family, his career, and ultimately, his sanity. That is, until he meets a Hindu holy man in rehab who claims to be the final incarnation of Lord Vishnu (the Hindu god who is the preserver of the universe). Suddenly, the tragically shallow Travis is saddled with the responsibility of bettering mankind and saving the world. LORD VISHNU'S LOVE HANDLES is a slyly humorous novel that twists and turns with hilarity. Combining a wildly original plot with witty dialogue and a strangely loveable - if possibly deranged - narrator, Will Clarke's impressive debut will have readers eagerly following Travis on his mind-boggling and comic journey.
