Who am I? Why am I here? Where do I find meaning?

Life is full of big questions. The study of philosophy seeks answers to such questions. In his latest book, prolific author Vern Poythress investigates the foundations and limitations of Western philosophy, sketching a distinctly Christian approach to answering basic questions about the nature of humanity, the existence of God, the search for meaning, and the basis for morality.

Author Bio

Vern S. Poythress (PhD, Harvard University; ThD, University of Stellenbosch) is professor of New Testament interpretation at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he has taught for nearly four decades. In addition to earning six academic degrees, he is the author of numerous books and articles on biblical interpretation, language, and science.

Endorsements

In the author's characteristically judicious and winsome fashion, this volume makes a timely and welcome contribution to the age-old debate on the relationship between Christian theology and philosophy. In doing so it provides a resolute and compelling case that the basic questions philosophy asks find their fundamental answers only in the Bible, God's written Word. In the midst of so much current confused thinking on these matters, I commend Redeeming Philosophy to all concerned with 'taking every thought captive to obey Christ.'
-Richard B. Gaffin Jr.,
Professor Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary

Poythress has again gotten it right. This book contains a great deal of fresh thinking and careful Christian philosophical work. This is Poythress's clearest integration between linguistics, philosophy, and exegesis. Surely this book contains the most incisive analyses of apples and bookmarks that you will ever find. The point, of course, is that everything in God's world reflects the richness of the triune God.
-John M. Frame,
Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando

Matters of philosophy are often complex and laden with challenging issues. Christians wonder whether they should avoid philosophy altogether and simply stick with the Bible or if there is something that can be gained from philosophical study. Employing the theological methodology of John Frame, Dr. Poythress has written a useful introductory exploration of the relationship between philosophy and the teachings of Scripture.
-J. V. Fesko,
Westminster Seminary California
