About this product
From Plato to Aristotle to Heidegger, philosophy has often played a key role in the development of the formulations of Christian theology, this despite the protests of those purists who claim to the contrary that Christian dogma is exclusively divine revelation unimpeded by mortal reason. In fact, however, human contribution to various creedal formulations of the church throughout the centuries is unmistakable. Christians should be engaged in and articulating their theology with the help of politics, sociology, history and, yes, philosophy. The message of the incarnation is that God entered into real time and space for the purpose of revealing Himself to humanity in terms that it could understand. This is a necessity if the gospel is to be contextualized for each new generation.
From Plato to Jesus explores the philosophical currents that have and are shaping systematic theology. C. Marvin Pate challenges the tion that philosophy should t influence theological understandings. This book is written as a supplemental or primary textbook for a systematic or historical theology class, and thus, for ease of use, is arranged by the standard theological categories.
