Product Description

Despite claims that Christian dogma is exclusively divine revelation "unimpeded" by mortal reason, philosophy has often played a key role in the development of theology. Pate explores philosophical currents from Socrates to Sartre, and beyond, clarifying human contributions that have shaped credal formulations of the church and articulation of the gospel.

Publisher's Description

From Plato to Aristotle to Heidegger, philosophy has often played a key role in the development of the formulations of Christian theology, this despite the protests of those purists who claim to the contrary that Christian dogma is exclusively divine revelation "unimpeded" by mortal reason. In fact, however, human contribution to various creedal formulations of the church throughout the centuries is unmistakable. Christians should be engaged in and articulating their theology with the help of politics, sociology, history and, yes, philosophy. The message of the incarnation is that God entered into real time and space for the purpose of revealing Himself to humanity in terms that it could understand. This is a necessity if the gospel is to be contextualized for each new generation. "From Plato to Jesus" explores the philosophical currents that have and are shaping systematic theology. C. Marvin Pate challenges the notion that philosophy should not influence theological understandings. This book is written as a supplemental or primary textbook for a systematic or historical theology class, and thus, for ease of use, is arranged by the standard theological categories.

    de la Plato la Isus

    Combination between philosophy and theology gave me frequent moments of intellectual satisfaction so a road from Plato to Jesus could only excite my mind and order some notions captured along the way.

    For Professor Pate, philosophy is not just a discussion about complicated concepts that will explain the meaning of human existence and therefore the approach are clearly shown benefits philosophy. Pate successfully provides arguments in favor of the idea that "philosophy is preparation for the gospel, philosophy anticipates and culminates in Theology." This statement is related to the fact that man has sought to understand the meaning of his existence and gather evidence that is made in the image and divine likeness. All tensions between universal and particular, experience and reason, and so on tends to be clarified by Incarnation. "To us," says Pate, "thereby anticipates philosophy, or is resolved in the Incarnation."
