A Brief Book Notice from Books At a Glance
Everyone is a philosopher, and how we live reveals what we most deeply believe.
If you and God were asked the same question, would you both respond in the same way?
Are Christians right to believe what we do?
In We Are All Philosophers, John M. Frame takes seven major questions of philosophy and compares the Bible’s answers with common philosophical ones:
- What is everything made of?
- Do I have free will?
- Can I know the world?
- Does God exist?
- How shall I live?
- What are my rights?
- How can I be saved?
We Are All Philosophers carries all the marks of John Frame’s books: he appeals to Scripture frequently and carefully. He writes elegantly and simply, a byproduct of having mastered the complicated philosophical topics he surveys.
About the Author:
Dr. John M. Frame is the retired J. D. Trimble Chair of Systematic Theology and Philosophy at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando and is the author of many books, including Salvation Belongs to the Lord, A History of Western Philosophy and Theology and the four-volume Theology of Lordship series.
“By answering seven fundamental questions from a thoroughly biblical worldview grounded in Scripture, John Frame wonderfully helps the average Christian engage philosophical thought according to Christ. In a short, popular, and accessible style, Frame helps Christians engage the questions of life with answers that demonstrate that the fear of the Lord is truly the beginning of wisdom and the foundation of all thought. I highly recommend this book for all Christians who want to know and proclaim the truth of the Gospel in our generation.” ―Stephen J. Wellum, Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“I tell my students that everyone does philosophy: the only question is whether you do it well or not! Readers of this delightful little volume by the brilliant theologian John Frame will be off to a flying start in doing philosophy well―that is, in thinking seriously and carefully about life’s big questions through the lens of God’s Word. I can enthusiastically recommend We Are All Philosophers as an accessible, digestible, insightful, and biblically grounded introduction to philosophical thought.” ―James Anderson, Professor of Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary
“Here is an attractive, accessible treatment of the big questions that people have about themselves and the world. The book is recommended both for its interaction with alternative answers given in the history of Western philosophy, and for its nontechnical, clear style of presenting answers, based on biblical revelation.” ―Vern Poythress, professor of New Testament and Biblical Interpretation at Westminster Theological Seminary
