Philosophy for Understanding Theology has become the classic text for exploring the relationship between philosophy and Christian theology. This new edition adds chapters on postmodernism and questions of the self and the good to bring the book up to date with current scholarship. It introduces students to the influence that key philosophers and philosophical movements through the centuries have had on shaping Christian theology in both its understandings and forms of expression.

  • The Kindle version does not have pages numbers. This was a bit annoying when my professor required us to read certain pages before class.

    The content of the book was great though. I recommend starting with this text if you're getting into the subject matter for the first time, or if you've studied theology and philosophy for a while and just want a refresher.

  • Great book and price! Thank you!

  • Great product and price!

  • Book was delivered timely and as described.

  • Love the book.

  • An excellent, rigorous, and thorough introduction to the intersection of philosophy and the history of Christian thought.

  • Good book for my class.

  • This work is a chronologically arranged look at Western Philosophy, concentrating chiefly on those areas where it has informed or influenced theology. The authors do a good job in explaining the essential thinkers and the systems of thought over roughly a 2,500-year period.

    Beginning with Plato, the first inflection point, they briefly jump back to touch on the pre-Socratics, and then follow through with Aristotle and Aquinas, then the pre modern-, modern-, and post modern-ists.

    Although the authors are admirably objective in their narrative, there is a touch of Protestant bias (or is it my Catholic bias?) in the treatment of the Angelic Doctor. St. Thomas and Thomism is so much more than what the authors let on. Also, there always seems to be (in general with Protestant commentators) an attempt to "lift" St. Augustine out of the Catholic Church, primarily by placing Aquinas and Augustine in opposition. It is done here through the voice of Karl Barth speaking 700 years in the future. I've always felt this Aquinas-Augustine tension to mirror the tension found among the Gospels; i.e., the points of contradiction or non-agreement in the Gospels is additive to our Faith and helps us understand the great mysteries better, rather than nullifying either of them. I say all this with the complete confidence that the authors have forgotten more about Theology and Philosophy than I'll ever know - this is just my un-learned opinion.

    This work is composed so that each chapter can more or less stand on its own, so there is a bit of re-hashing and overlap - but I think that is a plus as it can be used to reference a single period without having to re-read previous chapters.

    All in all, a worthwhile and informative read.
