Redeeming Reason: A God-Centered Approach, by Vern S. Poythress
- Publisher: Crossway
Humans use reasoning to understand and order the world around us. We apply this logic in a variety of ways. How should our identity as Christians―made in the image of God (Gen. 1:26–27) with minds renewed by the Holy Spirit (Rom. 12:1–2)―inform our reasoning?
Vern S. Poythress explains how all human reasoning reflects God’s nature. Providing a foundational understanding of God as the source of rationality, Poythress details the 3 fundamental laws of logic―identity, contradiction, and excluded middle―with a focus on analogical reasoning. This book explains types of analogy, ethics applied to logic, the use of analogies in the doctrines of God, and more to give readers a renewed perspective on how to use reason as a follower of God.
- Thorough Study of Reasoning: Explores the 3 fundamental laws of logic along with various kinds of analogy, including syllogistic reasoning, formal deductive reasoning, inductive reasoning, and scientific models
- A God-Centered Approach to the Foundation of Western Thought: This book continues Poythress’s look at reasoning, placing it under the lordship of Christ
- Includes helpful visuals and appendices for learning and applying various systems of logic
