Item description for Handbook for Christian Philosophy, A by L. Russ Bush...

Offfers a nontechnical introduction to philosophy for the person who may be skeptical of philosophy. Among the topics given special treatment are theistic proofs, evil, and creation. There is a useful glossary, and the book is designed as a supplement to classroom textbooks.

Community Description
This handbook acquaints readers with philosophy in an introductory and nontechnical way. These materials, first developed for use in classes as a supplement to other formal textbooks, are designed to gain the confidence of students who have no technical level of expertise in the field of philosophy.

There is a very useful glossary at the end that will be of help to all readers, listing more than just simple definitions. Often the glossary explanations are like brief essays in themselves. Many significant issues arise in the field, but this book treats three in particular: theistic proofs, evil, and creation.

A Handbook for Christian Philosophy offers several contributions that make it unique. First, there is a section on logic that relates the subject of logic to biblical exegesis. Second, the treatment of evil puts special emphasis on the biblical themes that provide practical and theoretical help for people who are experiencing evil and going through suffering. Third, the chapter on creation includes an up-to-date critique of naturalistic evolution and a review of the recurrent Christian principles on this topic.

The author provides an excellent worldview evaluation, something that is desperately needed today by all Christians. The chapters include: What is philosophy?; How to study philosophy; Learning to think logically; Recognizing worldviews; Testing worldviews; The existence of God; Creation, the reasonable alternative; and a final chapter on God and evil.

Reviews - What do customers think about Handbook for Christian Philosophy, A?

Review of "A Handbook for Christian Philosophy"  Oct 26, 2000
I was very pleased with the book. It is clearly and well written. Dr. Bush treats the important areas regarding a Christian aproach to philosophy. He also raises some interesting questions that seriously challenge whether a naturalist can be confident of his ability to understand reality given the assumptions of a naturalist's world view. This is an excellent and thought provoking book. It is well worth reading in my opinion.
