Harold beautifully introduces some of philosophy's toughest questions in "An Introduction to the Love of Wisdom." Coming from a Christian background, with a universal understanding, you arrive at the work you would not typically find in a "Christian Philosophers" section, one of great research, unique approach, eloquent writing and sophisticated thought. Highly recommended especially for the younger Christian philosophers. Very few contemporary Christian philosophers are worth reading, Harold is one of the few.
