Introduction to Logic Jason Lisle

Jason Lisle. Introduction to Logic.  Green Forest, AK: Master Books, December 10, 2018. 192 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

Do you want to improve your reasoning ability as a Christian?  Christian apologist Jason Lisle has written for us an introduction to the laws of logic.  Some who read this review might be thinking: Christian and logic?  Yes the two are compatible.  Jason Lisle’s book on logic follow a long tradition of Christian works on logic such as hymn writer Isaac Watts in 1725 with his Logic: The Right Use of Reason in the Inquiry after Truth, Methodist founder John Wesley’s A Compendium Of Logic, and Gordon Clark’s textbook on logic, etc.  Jason Lisle himself is an astrophysicist who is involved with Creation ministries and previously I enjoyed his book titled Ultimate Proof that give a detailed introduction to Presuppositional Apologetics.  Seeing how good Dr Lisle writes I was looking for a book that I can introduced my daughters to the laws of logic and critical thinking and this book exceeded my expectation!

Point: Sometimes when one engage in apologetics the issue of alleged Bible contradiction comes up.  There are times when those who assert that there are contradictory verses in the Bible fail to acknowledge that words can have different meanings and thus a word used in one context does not mean the same thing in another context.  But if one fail to recognize there are differences of meaning of the word being used in two separate contexts, a skeptic can easily assume there’s a Bible contradiction when there are none.  Are there any examples of this error to get the point across to a skeptic of their foolish methodology and mistake?
