Often called 'theology's handmaid,' philosophy has sometimes suffered from an inferiority complex in the church. Many Christians wonder if philosophy is anything more than preparation for apologetics or question the point in it at all—why philosophy when we have theology. But as Paul Copan contends in A Little Book for New Philosophers, it is possible to affirm theology's preeminence without diminishing the value and contribution of philosophy.
A volume from the IVP Little Books series, A Little Book for New Philosophers offers newcomers and veterans alike a concise introduction to the study of philosophy, forwarding not only a survey of philosophy's basic aims and categories, but also an apology for its proper function within the Christian life. 'By God's grace,' Copan writes, 'philosophy can enhance our understanding and worship of God . . . and assist us in defending the coherence of our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.'
