Description - Christian Philosophy A-Z by Daniel D. Hill

In addition to its broad historical coverage, the dictionary also covers philosophers that have had a great impact on the Christian tradition from outside, such as Plato, Aristotle, and David Hume. The issues dealt with are those that perplex Christian philosophers as they seek to think through their faith in a philosophical way, and their philosophical beliefs in the light of their faith. The dictionary is especially concerned with the way Christian philosophy has made inroads within the past fifty years of analytic philosophy, as led by Alvin Plantinga, Nicholas Wolterstorff, William Alston, and Robert Adams. The dictionary covers in detail the issues that these philosophers have brought to the forefront of contemporary discussion: for example, the question of whether and how God knows the future, the question of what knowledge is and whether we may know that God exists, and the question of what Athens has to do with Jerusalem. This book will be of interest to aspiring Christian philosophers and all those studying philosophy of religion.
