Philosophical or analytic theology seeks to employ philosophical tools while studying topics in Christian theology and examining the logical consistency or intelligibility of the key doctrines in the Christian faith. In this accessible introduction, An Introduction to Christian Philosophical Theology, A Video Study, Stephen T. Davis and Eric T. Yang first explain the scope, relevance, and value of philosophical theology and then applies its conceptual tools to examine each of the core Christian doctrines:
- Revelation and Scripture
- The Trinity
- The Incarnation
- Redemption and the atonement
- Resurrection and life after death
The final session briefly addresses some additional theological issues including petitionary prayer, eschatology, and original sin.
Designed for beginning students and non-specialists, this guide provides the ideal entry point for not only understanding what philosophical theology is but also for how it can provide valuable insights for how we think about the core doctrines of the Christian faith.
