Christian Philosophical Theology constitutes a Christian philosopher's look at various crucial topics in Christian theology, including belief in God, the nature of God, the Trinity, christology, the resurrection of Jesus, the general resurrection, redemption, and theological method. The bookis tightly argued, and amounts to a coherent explanation of and case for the Christian world view. Although written from a broadly Reformed Protestant perspective, and although the author does not avoid controversial topics, the aim is to present a `merely Christian' world view (to adapt slightly C.S. Lewis's famous term). That is, Stephen T. Davis attempts to write as much as possible from the perspective of the broad centre of Christian understanding.
Stephen T. Davis is Russell K. Pitzer Professor of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College, California.
