Philosophical Foundations For a Christian Worldview (2nd Edition)J P Moreland, William Lane Craig
:Winner of a 2004 ECPA Gold Medallion Award!Winner of an Award of Excellence in the 2003 Chicago Book Clinic!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 to the subject. 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.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.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, leading figures in the contemporary resurgence of Christian philosophy, offer a comprehensive and up-to-date introduction for all who want to explore the philosophical architecture of reality.
