Prelude to Philosophy: An Introduction for Christians (2013)
“The unexamined life is not worth living,” according to Socrates, but pursuing the examined life strikes many as daunting, unappealing and even unnecessary. Is philosophy important? Why do I need philosophy if I have the Bible? Aren’t philosophers simply engaged in meaningless disputes that are irrelevant to everyday life? Mark Foreman addresses these and other questions in this “prelude” to the subject.
Philosophy & Education: An Introduction in Christian Perspective (2006)
Knight’s textbook surveys the philosophies and philosophic issues relevant to Christian education.
Philosophy and the Christian: The Quest for Wisdom in the Light of Christ (2018)
Tertullian famously asked, “What has Athens to do with Jerusalem?” Since the first century, Christians have hotly debated the relationship between faith and reason, between Scripture and natural revelation, and between Christian doctrine and non-Christian philosophy. Too often, though, the history of this conflict has been misrepresented and misunderstood. Thus, before we seek to answer these questions for our own time, we must first come to grips with the answers of the past.
Christian Philosophy (2012)
Everyone views life through a filter. The Bible calls that your philosophy. It’s the way you think and it controls the outcome of your life. Ask yourself, do you believe the bible is the infallible and inspired word of God? Do you believe there is only one way to God? Is God good or judgmental? Does He control your destiny or is that up to you?
Doing Philosophy as a Christian (Christian Worldview Integration Series) (2011)
What does it mean to be called to the profession of philosophy? What does it mean for the Christian in particular? And how should those called to the profession engage their tasks? Noting that philosophy literally is “the love of wisdom,” Garrett J. DeWeese begins with a discussion of wisdom from the Old and New Testaments before addressing the often misunderstood relation between faith and reason.
Science & Its Limits: The Natural Sciences in Christian Perspective (Contours of Christian Philosophy) (2000)
Science, especially naturalistic science, has come under fire of late. No longer does it command the near universal respect it once held. From the right has come a fresh attack on Darwinism and arguments for intelligent design.
Exploring the History and Philosophy of Christian Education: Principles for the 21st Century (2011)
In this insightful book, two leading scholars in Christian education trace the history of the discipline from the Old Testament to the present. Presented against the backdrop of wider philosophical thought and historical events, Anthony and Benson show how each successive era shaped the practice of Christian education today.
