What is MasterClass?
It’s Worldview Academy’s unique curriculum made for adults and delivered online. These live online classes are for teachers, youth pastors, parents, and college-aged students who want to dig deeper into a biblical worldview.
MasterClasses are “live-fire” environments where expert Worldview faculty will guide you through weekly readings and discussions.
- The same unique curriculum we teach at our Leadership Camps, expanded.
You’ll read some of the best Christian authors and theologians and dig deep into biblical worldview, leadership skills, evangelism techniques, and apologetic concepts.
- Weekly discussion-based live video classes.
Each class explores the week’s readings in great depth and challenges you to apply the concepts learned to real life.
- A lively community of fellow students and direct access to your teacher.
Outside of the weekly classes, you’ll have access to your teacher as a mentor and sounding board. You won’t be alone as you seek to teach and apply what you’ve learned.

How to be a Dinosaur: The Fiction of C.S. Lewis and the Christian Worldview
We are living in a new kind of dark ages. One so removed and separated from the past that we do not even know that we are lost and adrift from our Christian heritage. Through the fiction of Lewis you will reconnect with the pre-modern biblical worldview and be refreshed by its truth. As C.S. Lewis said, “We all, therefore, need the books that will correct the characteristic mistakes of our own period.”
