Item description for Metaphysics: Constructing a World View (Contours of Christian Philosophy) by William Hasker...

William Hasker addresses some of the most fundamental issues in philosophy, focusing on the meaning of a Christian worldview. The book's primary purpose is to serve as one of several texts in an introductory philosophy course, but it will also be of use to the interested reader outside any formal course framework. Hasker addresses "Freedom and Necessity," "Minds and Bodies," "The World," and "God and the World."

Publishers Description
What is ultimately real? What is God like? Do human beings have minds and souls or only brains in bodies? Are humans free agents or are all human acts determined by prior circumstances? Through insightful analysis and careful evaluation, William Hasker helps readers answer these questions and thereby construct a world view to make sense of the universe and the people in it.

Reviews - What do customers think about Metaphysics: Constructing a World View (Contours of Christian Philosophy)?

Glad I don't serve the God of this book  Jun 30, 2009
I, like the previous reviewer, had to read this book for a class at Liberty University on Philosophy. The class is good, this book is awful. It seemed to me that everything had to be explained away by the author about God. No usage of Scripture when dealing with an explanation of sovereignty and his conclusion on the matter left much to be desired. I am glad that my God is not bound by my mind and that I don't need to explain God's sovereignty away to take account for my will. I would never had read it to begin with and coming away from it I feel like I know more about metaphysics than I did before but for being "Christian" it does leave a bad taste in my mouth.
Liberty University Textbook  Jun 5, 2009
This book is one of the many books used for a philosophy class at Liberty University. It is excellent. I would be interested in reading it again when I don't have 12 other books to read in an eight week period. The author is clear and explains well the basic views and aspects of Metaphysics.
