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 the foundation stones for constructing any kind of worldview. In Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview J.P. Moreland and William Lane Craig offer 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.

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.

    Excellent shape and quick shipping. This is a rather thorough and in-depth resource. Gives a solid foundation for taking back some good intellectual ground in the worldviews arena.

    This book is top notch scholarship. If you are a student of theology you should study this book to help make your positions more poignant. Enough cannot be said about how top notch of scholars both Craig and Moreland are! I find that many times those who study theology tend to lack a philosophical edge. This book will help to bolster both logical reasoning and philosophical technique. This book should be studied in detail by both scholar and layman. Philosophical Foundations serves to both introduce various philosophical positions and reasoning as well as evaluate evangelical theological positions in light of supreme philosophical technique. This book will allow its serious reader to refine and nuance his position and to gain a deeper understanding of various aspects relating to his position. I highly recommend this book!
