Philosophy has given us insights into the reflections of thinkers on such subjects as God, mankind, the world, and the possibility of knowing ultimate reality. The processes of reasoning and the conclusions of logic are often intensely fascinating. Dr. Geisler reminds us, however, that the premises and the arguments of philosophy are often faulty, leading to a wholly inadequate view of knowledge and revelation. He reiterates Paul’s warning to the Colossian Christians: “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy.” The contributors to this volume show how the basic presuppositions of many philosophers lead to a denial of a divine, inerrant revelation. The views of some modern theologians regarding revelation find their roots in such deceptive philosophy.
