Book Description

1 Mar 2009
Philosopher James R. Peters defends the reasonableness of the Christian faith in The Logic of the Heart. He paves a middle road between the Enlightenment's worship of reason and postmodernism's emphasis on freedom and self rule. He delves into the thought of theologian St. Augustine and philosopher mathematician Blaise Pascal and engages the skeptic David Hume, who argued against the possibility of miracles. Throughout this process, Peters provides an alternative to postmodern thought as well as the widespread New Atheism. This work is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate students pursuing studies in philosophy of religion and historical theology. Since Peters writes in nontechnical language, readers interested in the relationship between faith and reason will also benefit from The Logic of the Heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is How an Academic Book SHOULD be Written 30 Oct 2009
By Kim Paffenroth - Published on Amazon.com
But they are so seldom! I read and review books in theology all the time. Increasingly, I grow weary of the turgid, inept prose in them, and their seeming eagerness to make important, interesting ideas as obscure and meaningless as possible. This book is written in some of the most elegant prose I've read in years. It also bursts with the passion that the author has for his subject matter, and is based on a depth of knowledge of the subject that is amazing. These qualities mean that on every page, a reader will find insights and analyses that s/he will understand and treasure. If you are interested in the relation of faith and reason and would like a guide in your investigation, this is definitely the book for you. I can't recommend it enough.
