Christian Philosophical Theology
OUP Oxford, 2006 M03 17 - 320 pages
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 book is tightly argued, and amounts to a coherent explanation of and case for the Christian world view. While the work is written from a broadly Reformed Protestant perspective and 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.
