For most of us, learning abstract philosophical concepts involves literally learning a new language, a language that the initiated converse in with ease but which leaves the rest of us baffled.
The SCM Study Guide to Philosophy and the Christian Faith aims to meet a need for an accessible treatment of the intersection between philosophy and theology. It deals with some of the loftiest concepts ever conceived by the human race, and yet makes these concepts easy to grasp and applicable.
This study guide will provide students with an overview of the history of Western philosophy, equipping them to understand more deeply the culture-shaping beliefs that are driving the kinds of questions, both past and present, which our culture brings to the Christian faith.
All the way through there will be breaks to consider discussion questions or to go over the terminology. It is a must-have primer.
Ben Pugh is lecturer in New Testament and Applied Theology at Cliff College, UK. He is the author of "The Old Rugged Cross: A History of the Atonement in Popular Christian Devotion", and "Bold Faith: A Closer Look at the Five Key Ideas of Charismatic Christianity".
This is a very clearly structured and well written survey of the history of philosophy and how different philosophies have influenced Christian theology. Pugh has a real talent for explaining complex philosophical ideas and theories in an accessible and entertaining way. The SCM Studyguide to Philosophy and the Christian Faith will be a very useful resource for anyone studying or teaching the history of philosophy. I will certainly be using it in my classes! -- David Law
