   schema:reviewBody ""These are some of the big questions that have exercised philosophers for millenia. In this lively and enjoyable book, Jonathan Hill focuses on how Christian thinkers have dealt with such issues over the centuries. The arguments for and against each position on any topic are considered; the implications are then drawn out and compared with alternative approaches. The text does not draw any final conclusions; its purpose is to equip readers to think constructively for themselves, rather than to provide a ready-made philosophy. Ideas from philosophers or representatives of other religions are also included, either because they help shed extra light on Christian ideas or because they offer important and substantial alternative viewpoints. The author avoids technicalities and assumptions of prior knowledge on the part of the reader." -- Back cover." ;
