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.'

About the Series

IVP Academic's Little Books are where apprentices meet the masters. For the student they offer a starting point, an inspiring vision, and an opportunity to set their course into the future. Career scholars sum up their time-tested wisdom and pass it on to a new generation.

These are books to put in the hands of beginning students. Take them to a high point to catch a view of the horizons beyond. Orient them to true north. Empower their imaginations. And kindle the virtues they will need to prosper in the field.

Students from brash to shy have the opportunity to sit down with accomplished scholars and learn of the challenges and thrills, the promise and dreams of pursuing an academic calling.
