Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Peterson, a devout believer in Christian theism, is a philosophy professor at a Christ-centered liberal arts college. His 1998 God and Evil examined evil in the context of the philosophy of religion. Here he deals with educational issues from a fundamentalist perspective, which holds that universal truths and values are knowable because they are based on the Scriptures. Before making his case for a Christian philosophy of education, Peterson surveys other philosophies, including existentialism, experimentalism, and postmodernism, and expounds on each of their inadequacies as a basis for teaching today's youth. Contemporary education is beset by many problems, he argues, that can best be solved by instilling a reverent sense of humanity in children of all ages. Curricula based on a Christian worldview would promote ethics and values along with the pursuit of intellectual excellence in other areas of study. Peterson concludes by urging all Christian scholars to transform culture by reflecting the character of God in all they do. Fundamentalists will applaud Peterson's stance, but nonbelievers will find too many leaps of faith required to embrace his subjective thinking. Recommended for large education, religion, and philosophy collections. Will Hepfer, SUNY at Buffalo Libs. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
