This is a good introductory book to the idea of worldview and the main options. Sire does a great job of detailing and then criticizing each worldview. He's forthright in stating his bias toward Christian Theism, while arguing that there is no such thing as an objective perspective on worldview, as there is no neutral position.

This is a great book for college students, or beginners in worldview thinking. You'll want to go deeper after this. For the western traditions, I recommend following this one with "From Rationalism to Irrationality" if you're lucky enough to find it.
