Sproul reminds us that ideas can powerful. Many world leaders have understood that power in a purely negative way, quashing all dissent and even eliminating those whose ideas are different. One can't deny the power that religious ideas like the trinity and incarnation of Jesus Christ have had on the world.
Starting with Thales of Miletus, Sproul takes us on a journey through philosophy. He looks at both Plato and Aristotle, and then moves to Augustine and Thomas Aquinas, two men who have shaped the ideas of the church perhaps more than any others. Sproul then takes a look at philosophers like Descartes, Locke, Hume, Kant, Marx, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Sartre, and even Darwin and Freud (Darwin and Freud are not usually considered philosophers, but their philosophical impact is often underestimated). Some of the philosophers are Christian; some like Nietzsche are anti-Christian; all are profoundly influential.
The goal of this book is to remind us how powerful ideas can be, and what The Consequences of Ideas are. Sproul does a masterful job of illustrating the influence that philosophy has had and is continuing to have on society. Armed with this knowledge, and a strong knowledge of Christian philosophy, you can join Sproul and influence the world for the better.

Sproul's survey of the ongoing impact of history's most influential philosophies urges readers to take prevailing cultural mind-sets seriously . . . because ideas do have consequences.
The greatest thinkers of all time are impacting us still. From public-policy decisions and current laws to world events, theology, the arts, education, and even conversations between friends, history's most influential philosophies have wrought massive consequences on nearly everything we see, think, and do.
Thus it is critical for Christians to understand the ideas that are shaping them. The greater their familiarity with the streams of thought that have saturated Western culture through the ages, the greater their ability to influence this culture for Christ.
With The Consequences of Ideas, now in paperback, R. C. Sproul expertly leads the way for thoughtful readers. Tracing the contours of Western philosophy from the ancients to the molders of modern and postmodern thought-including Plato, Aquinas, Descartes, Kant, and Freud-Sproul proves that ideas are not just passing fads; they endure for generations to come and demand our serious attention.
