9780802844378: Reason for the Hope Within

During the last two decades there has been a renaissance in the field of Christian philosophy. Unfortunately, most of this excellent work has not reached general readers. Reason for the Hope Within was produced specifically to make available the best of contemporary Christian philosophy in a clear, accessible—and highly relevant—manner.

Fourteen of America's rising Christian philosophers cover many of the traditional themes of Christian apologetics as well as topics of special relevance to today's world:

  • the problem of evil
  • the possibility of miracles
  • the existence of heaven and hell
  • Eastern religions
  • Religion and science
  • Christianity and ethics


Reason for the Hope Within provides readers with the most up-to-date resources for thinking about and defending the Christian faith.

Review:

The Cresset
"As an attempt to present contemporary philosophy of religion in a manner accessible to the layperson, Reason for the Hope Within is an unqualified success. The prose is clear and the authors take care to define philosophical concepts."

Theology
"The book succeeds admirably in making philosophy accessible, and in applying philosophical reasoning to some difficult questions. It has the great merit of taking reason, hard questions, and particularly its readers, with great seriousness."

Theology Today
"The editor of this collection of essays contends that the standard works in seminary apologetics have become dated in light of contemporary developments in analytical philosophy. The contributors, up-and-coming 'Christian philosophers,' ambitiously seek to rehabilitate the discipline of apologetics by restoring its philosophical respectability. At the same time, the authors self-consciously craft their arguments so that lay Christians will find them comprehensible. . . Even those who disagree here and there will benefit from reflecting on the rigorous analyses that the contributors provide."

Religious Studies Review
"The volume would work nicely in an introductory philosophy of religion class as a supplement to primary texts."

International Philosophical Quarterly
"This collection of essays, mostly by young philosophers, aims to close the gap between academic philosophizing and practical apologetics, by making the fruits of the former accessible to believing non-philosophers. . . . Eschewing the popular apologetics ideal of the 'knockdown argument,' the contributors present both arguments and counter-arguments in sufficient detail to give the reader some appreciation of the depth and subtlety of the issues at stake, even while keeping their treatments remarkably free from the jargon of the profession."
