Reviews - What do customers think about Primary Readings in Philosophy for Understanding Theology?

amazing!  Nov 15, 2001
This is a fabulous text paired with its companion volume, Philosophy for Understanding Theology. The editors' selections of text well highlight and enrich the material covered in the other text. These two texts are a must own for anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of the philosophical roots and contexts of theology.
Not recommended for beginning theology students.  May 29, 2001
Did not connect very well with theological studies for me. Also, without some significant biographical, historical and philosophical context on the writers themselves, it was hard to be able to put the writings in perspective. Better to read from an original translation of the philosopher's work than to take out of context. Need at least a couple of courses in philosophy prior to tackling something like this. Admittedly the readings were easier to work with than the "Philosophy for Understanding Theology" which this volume was intended to supplement.
informative.  Nov 2, 1998
Fair overview of ideas regarding philosophy and it's relation with theology.
