Introducing the Edward Carnell Library
(Nine Titles Listed Inside)
A Philosophy of the Christian Religion is not a defense of the Christian faith in the conventional sense. The gamut of contending values and the systems of thought preoccupying the contemporary mind are analyzed here with admirable comprehension and lucidity. These competing philosophies are severally evaluated by the whole perspective of the Christian system and demonstrated as partial, here-and-now values, incapable of satisfying the demands of the whole man.
"Christianity is a coherent religion. It never asks the heart to trust values which the reason is obliged to discard as contradictory. No value commitment is completely satisfying until the complete man is satisfied."
