Publisher's Description

Philosophy and Christianity make truth claims about many of the same things. They both claim to provide answers to the deep questions of life. But how are they related to one another?

Four Views on Christianity and Philosophy introduces readers to four predominant views on the relationship between philosophy and the Christian faith and their implications for life. Each author identifies the propositional relation between philosophy and Christianity along with a section devoted to the implications for living a life devoted to the pursuit of wisdom.

The contributors and views include:

  • Graham Oppy--Conflict: Philosophy Trumps Christianity
  • K. Scott Oliphint--Covenant: Christianity Trumps Philosophy
  • Timothy McGrew--Convergence: Philosophy Confirms Christianity
  • Paul Moser--Conformation: Philosophy Reconceived Under Christianity

General editors Paul M. Gould and Richard Davis explain the background to the discussion and provide some historical background in the introduction, as well as helpful summaries of each position in the conclusion. In the reader-friendly Counterpoints format, this book helps readers to reflect on the strengths and weaknesses of each view and draw informed conclusions in this much-debated topic.
