Reasons for Faith

Related to the featured interview is Dr. Oliphint's Reasons for Faith: Philosophy in the Service of Theology .

Here is what a fellow faculty member has to say about it:

"This is a wonderful book. If given the attention it deserves, Reasons for Faith should change the discussion in matters relating revelation to reason from now on. There is nothing quite like it in the literature.

"Moving from Augustine to Plantinga, Professor Oliphint interacts with many of the major questions raised by philosophy, in areas including metaphysics, epistemology and ethics, and in every case shows himself to be thoroughly conversant with the issues.

"Most significantly, he is able to show how theology in the Reformation tradition provides the only credible basis for resolving the problems. Reasons for Faith will leave no one indifferent. It will leave many profoundly grateful."
