In a refined, more readable second edition, the authors probe the reasons and reality of faith from a philosophical and a Christian viewpoint. They discuss various philosophical positions, refuting anti-Christian views and presenting arguments and counterarguments for each Christian perspective.
In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in Introduction to Philosophy are tagged and appear on mouse-over, and all Scripture passages link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “skepticism” or “revelation.”
