Product Description

Philosophy. A daunting subject. But in Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview, two of the most gifted Christian teachers of philosophy give us a comprehensive and well-mapped guide. In J.P. Moreland and William Lane Craig’s broad sweep of the field, they introduce readers to the principal subdisciplines of philosophy, including epistemology, metaphysics, ethics, philosophy of science, and philosophy of religion. And they do so with clarity and incisiveness while presenting rival theories with fairness and accuracy.

This second edition of a widely used and acclaimed textbook offers numerous and significant revisions as well as new chapters on atonement and the mind-body problem. Moreland and Craig offer an up-to-date introduction for all who want to explore the philosophical architecture of reality.

Publisher's Description

  • Winner of a 2004 ECPA Gold Medallion Award
  • Winner of an Award of Excellence in the 2003 Chicago Book Clinic
  • What is real?
  • What is truth?
  • What can we know?
  • What should we believe?
  • What should we do and why?
  • Is there a God?
  • Can we know him?
  • Do Christian doctrines make sense?
  • Can we believe in God in the face of evil?

These are fundamental questions that any thinking person wants answers to. These are questions that philosophy addresses. And the answers we give to these kinds of questions serve as the foundation stones for constructing any kind of worldview. Now updated and expanded in this second edition, Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview by J. P. Moreland and William Lane Craig offers a comprehensive introduction to philosophy from a Christian perspective. In their broad sweep they seek to introduce readers to the principal subdisciplines of philosophy, including epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of science, ethics, and philosophy of religion. They do so with characteristic clarity and incisiveness. Arguments are clearly outlined, and rival theories are presented with fairness and accuracy. Philosophy, they contend, aids Christians in the tasks of apologetics, polemics, and systematic theology. It reflects our having been made in the image of God, helps us to extend biblical teaching into areas not expressly addressed in Scripture, facilitates the spiritual discipline of study, enhances the boldness and self-image of the Christian community, and is requisite to the essential task of integrating faith and learning. Here is a lively and thorough introduction to philosophy for all who want to know reality. This second edition now includes including enhanced arguments, updated bibliographies, and new chapters on atonement and the mind-body problem.

Editorial Reviews

Moreland and Craig present a comprehensive introduction to philosophy from a Christian point of view. Both theologically and philosophically engaging and stimulating. Moreover, the book is structured in such a way that prior knowledge in philosophy is not necessarily required to understand it. I highly recommend it.
