This is a stimulating, enriching and invigorating reexamination of some of the oldest and greatest questions of philosophy and theology. Stackhouse helps us see old debates in new ways, and may even help us resolve a few of them! * Alister E. McGrath, Andreas Idreos Professor of Science and Religion, Oxford University *
John Stackhouse's new book follows the trajectory of his much-admired Humble Apologetics. For him, the first thing (apart from the Word of God) is to understand our culture and what drives it. Contemporary culture is a mixture: some things are to be guarded against, others to be appropriated. In advocating this process of sifting, Stackhouse urges his readers to exercise judgment, and particularly to think vocationally. He is an excellent expositor, one who teaches by example. What's more, he's a friendly, engaging guide, with a great feel for what's going on around us. Above all, he aims to tool-up his readers, encouraging us to think for ourselves. This is, in sum, a notable book in Christian discipleship. * Paul Helm, Professor Emeritus of the History and Philosophy of Religion, King's College, London University *
This book on epistemology has all the hallmarks of the work of John Stackhouse: formidable range and grasp of the materials, philosophical acuity, a sharp eye for the main points at issue and an engaging and persuasive style of exposition. Reading him is an education in itself and this book shows him at the height of his expository powers. * David Martin, FBA, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, London School of Economics *
