Publisher's Description

Examines contemporary claims for Christian dependence on Hellenistic philosophy, Greco-Roman mystery religions, and Gnosticism. He finds the case for dependence in the strong sense tenuous.

Author Bio

Ronald H. Nash was professor of Christian philosophy at Southern Baptist Seminary. He authored more than thirty books and lectured at more than fifty colleges and universities in the United States, Great Britain, and the former Soviet Union.

Editorial Reviews

An excellent apologetic . . . showing the insuperable problems of viewing Christianity as an outgrowth of Greek philosophy, the Hellenistic mystery religions, or gnosticism.
Not content with refuting unsound arguments, Nash makes positive contributions to the subject under discussion.
A lucid and superb book.

    while this is a helpful book to learn about aspects of Hellenized philosophy/religion before and around the time of the new testament, and while it is a helpful study to begin thinking about how that does or does not relate to aspects of the Christian gospel as found in the new testament, the author may be trying too hard to insulate the Gospel from affinities with some of the philosophical/religious currents that were in the air in its day. Nash presents a very conservative take on the subject, and this book is worth a good read, but this should not be the only perspective one gets in trying to come to a conclusion on this subject.
