Philosophy is too often considered abstract and out of reach for the average person. Worse yet, some believe it to be dangerous or a stumbling block to the Christian religion. But the development of human thought, particularly as it applies to understanding faith and making daily decisions, is important for every person to consider. In an intelligent but accessible way, this series aims to introduce thinkers who have made significant contributions to Christian thought. Some are notable in religious history, and others are best known for their critical perspectives. Rahner, Weil, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Bonhoeffer, and Barth: none delivers the same message, yet all are relevant.
The SPCK Introductions series offers the perfect starting point for new learners, and is a valuable Christian perspective for serious students of philosophy. Simone Weil asserted that, ultimately, the thing we seek in literature, philosophy, and theology is not what we may learn about the author, but what we may learn about truth. Use the critical thinking of these gifted men and women to inspect and strengthen your own faith and understanding of Christianity.
The Noet edition makes these resources even more relevant to your study of philosophy. The collection links with the rest of your library, allowing for easy side-by-side comparison and cross-referencing. Perform comprehensive searches by topic to compare the perspectives of theologians, scholars, and other philosophical thinkers. Your preferred Scripture translation is displayed on mouseover, saving time and adding biblical depth to your study.
