Overview

“We must rid ourselves of the notion that faith and learning are somehow opposites or enemies. Faith and learning are interwoven with each other for the full functioning of the human mind.”

Foundations of Christian Thought is a clear, even-handed presentation of the interconnection between faith and learning, and the modern worldviews competing for our attention, including naturalism, secular humanism, atheistic existentialism, pantheism, and the New Age movement. Guided by the author’s fresh approach, readers on the college campus, in the workforce, and elsewhere will learn to relate their faith to their own intellectual journey and the ideas they encounter along the way.

“Mark Cosgrove has accomplished the difficult task of making the issues of worldview and faith integration with academic disciples accessible to the non-expert. . . . Highly useful as an introduction to these issues.”

—Harry Lee Poe
Charles Colson Professor of Faith and Culture,
Union University

“Mark Cosgrove refuses to dodge the hard questions and presents the Christian worldview with honesty and humility. I strongly recommend Foundations of Christian Thought as well tested and effective.”

—Jay Kesler
President Emeritus,
Taylor University

“As a consummate teacher, using more leisurely language and current examples, Mark Cosgrove leads the reader—as if in a classroom—to ask the questions that compel a carefully reasoned response.”

—D. Bruce Lockerbie
Chairman, PAIDEIA, Inc., Stony Brook, NY
Author, Thinking and Acting Like a Christian

Foundations of Christian Thought offers a completely new and fresh approach to exploring and engaging the inescapable commingling of faith, learning, and worldview. [It] takes the reader on an intellectual expedition.”

Richard C. Chewning
Emeritus Professor of Christian Ethics,
Baylor University

    pure rubbish

    This book is utter rubbish, I do not feel it has an accurate depiction of Christianity as well as other religions. I would categorise the book as being a cult like read leading to a frenzy of deranged fundamentalists.
