Overview

What would happen if Socrates--yes, the Socrates of ancient Athens--suddenly showed up on the campus of a major university and enrolled in its divinity school?

What would he think of human progress since his day?

How would he react to our values? To our culture?

And what would he think of Jesus?

Peter Kreeft, Christian philosopher and longtime admirer of the historic Socrates, imagines the result. In this drama Socrates meets such fellow students as Bertha Broadmind, Thomas Keptic and Molly Mooney. Throughout, Kreeft weaves an intriguing web as he brings Socrates closer and closer to a meeting with Jesus. Here is a startling and provocative portrayal of reason in search of truth.

In a new introduction to this revised edition, Kreeft also highlights the inspiration for this book and the key questions of truth and faith it addresses.

    Socrates Lives!

    Very well written...very well thought out! Everyone should read this book...no matter what the religious or philosophical bias may be. Dr. Kreeft brilliantly brings Socrates back to life in the 20th century and shows just how relevant the 'Socratic Method' is for our day! Socrates uses logic and dialogue to find that Jesus is real and who He claimed to be!
