The Christian Intellectual Tradition

Christianity is more than a religion: it is also a complex intellectual tradition.

Christians and non-Christians alike who want to understand the world as it is today have to understand Christianity too. Christianity makes objective claims, but also presents a new way of thinking about the world. In Christianity Considered renowned theologian John Frame introduces the reader to the Christian religion and its unique intellectual framework, describing the key pillars of Christian thought and how these shape the Christian worldview. Covering a range of topics, from the resurrection to the Christian posture toward politics, Christianity Considered is a valuable guide to understanding the Christian faith as an intellectual tradition.

Useful for both the Christian reader looking for a better understanding of the faith and the skeptical reader who seeks to understand the intellectual tradition that has done much to shape the modern world.

Praise for Christianity Considered

This remarkably refreshing book gives good reasons why non-Christians should believe that Christianity is true, provides an insightful explanation of what it means to begin to believe in Jesus Christ, answers common objections to the Christian faith (especially from philosophers), and explains why Christians think differently about every important question in life. This book will be an excellent resource both for nonbelievers who want to learn about the Christian faith and for Christians who want to understand better how non-Christians think.

—Wayne Grudem, Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies, Phoenix Seminary

Here is an excellent piece to present to non-Christian inquirers, and an illuminating example of how presuppositional apologetics looks in the actual practice of trying to persuade an unbeliever.

—Vern Poythress, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Westminster Theological Seminary

John Frame always said he was not very good at engaging in conversations with unbelievers. This new book proves him wrong! It is personal, persuasive, and addresses real people with real questions, giving solid, biblical answers. I plan to acquire many copies and hand them out to friends who are, or ought to be, looking into the Christian faith. Thank you, John Frame!

—William Edgar, Professor of Apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary

Imagine an engaging apologetic for Christianity which manages to blend the holistic vision of Abraham Kuyper, the epistemological sophistication of Cornelius Van Til, the biblical theology of John Murray, and the winsome prose of John Stott. Imagine further that this apologetic incorporates philosophical and psychological insights mined through a lifelong study of God’s Word and its implications for how we should understand the world. What you are imagining—if indeed you can imagine it!—is John Frame’s latest masterpiece, Christianity Considered. This is a real gem of a book. May the Holy Spirit be pleased to use it to bring many to saving faith in Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

—James N. Anderson, Associate Professor of Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary
