Introduction to Philosophy provides a Christian perspective on the study and history of philosophy. It answers questions such as what is philosophy, why should it be studied, and what is its practical impact. The authors, Norman Geisler and Paul Feinberg, show that philosophy should be valued, in and of itself, and that Christianity can stand up to the rigors of philosophy, and should be seen as a philosophically valid worldview.
While written in textbook format, Introduction to Philosophy is also an excellent reference tool that does not glorify or vilify philosophy. It understandably explains how philosophical thought has significantly contributed to theological understanding, and how errors in philosophy must be recognized and refuted to confirm the reasonableness of Christian faith without religious jargon.
The five major sections of the book answer the questions What is philosophy?, What is knowledge?, What is reality?, What is the ultimate?, and What is good or right?. Also, the structure of the book allows you to easily jump to any topic in the book and study without reading previous sections of the book. If you’re teaching an apologetics or systematic theology class, or just want to increase your own knowledge in these areas, you will appreciate the up-to-date information and argument and counterargument approach of Introduction to Philosophy.
