Product Description

A full course in logic and its relationship to Christianity Logic: A God Centered Foundation to Western Thought is a remarkable achievement.

For the well-rounded Christian looking to improve their critical thinking skills, here is an accessible introduction to the study of logic (parts 1 & 2) as well as an in-depth treatment of the discipline (parts 3 & 4) from a professor with 6 academic degrees and over 30 years experience teaching.

Questions for further reflection are included at the end of each chapter as well as helpful diagrams and charts that are appropriate for use in high school, home school, college, and graduate-level classrooms. Overall, Vern Poythress has undertaken a radical recasting of the study of logic in this revolutionary work from a Christian worldview.

Endorsements

Most books on logic content themselves with trying to fix our problems in logic. But in this book, Vern Poythress takes a ‘God-centered’ approach to the subject, which addresses a more foundational problem we have—our problem about logic. What is it? Why is it authoritative? If logic is part of the creation, could God have made a world that had round squares in it? And if logic is untouchable and mysteriously somehow ‘over’ God, then doesn’t that make logic God? In this book, Poythress does a masterful job of showing how our ability to think rationally is grounded in the very nature of God Himself. I heartily recommend this book to every student of the subject.
