Someone reached out to me who loves to study theology and apologetics but is at a spiritual dry place and struggle with doubt.  To make this anonymous I won’t be sharing his side but my response I think might be helpful for others.  The only part I edited was adding part 5 which was originally not something I said to the person but I thought that would be a good point to add.

Here’s my response:

James N. Anderson. David Hume.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, December 2, 2019. 160 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

In a 1999 poll conducted by the British based Sunday Times the person voted as the “Greatest Scot of the Millennium” was the philosopher David Hume.  Unfortunately Hume’s philosophy wasn’t just unbiblical but many times Hume was deliberately anti-Christian.  Over the decades of evangelism, engaging in apologetics and taking courses in philosophy and religion I’ve heard people cite Hume or use argument for naturalism that came from Hume.  So who was Hume, what did he teach and what does a Christian philosophical critique of Hume looks like?  This book does an incredibly good job answering these questions.  The author James Anderson is an excellent example of a Christian scholar who engages in philosophy, theology and apologetics and here in this book he delivers the good.  This book is part of the Great Thinkers series published by P&R Publishing and thus far of the four volumes I have read (this work and the ones on Aquinas, Marx and Richard Dawkins) currently this one is my favorite one.

John Frame.  We Are All Philosophers.  Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press, August 28th 2019. 152 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

Everyone in some sense is a philosopher; the question is whether they are a good philosopher or a poor one.  In light of the fact that all of us encounter the big and deep questions of life Christian apologist and theologian John Frame has written this helpful work concerning Christian philosophy.  John Frame has written History of Western Philosophy and Theology which I highly recommend and in the preface of this present volume he noted that after finishing that earlier massive work he realized that he need to write another book on philosophy that would be more for the average reader.  Part of making this more accessible is this book is not only shorter but arranged topically instead of historically.  The language is simpler and I appreciate the definitions of terms after each chapter.  Although he said this book is an introduction still I think even Christians who know theology, apologetics and philosophy will benefit from it as Frame has a way of thinking through the Scripture and seeing connections between doctrines, philosophical categories and how they relate perspectivally in a way that makes you appreciate the world more and also the beauty of God’s glory.
