I: Who Is this Book For? IT IS FOR BOTH Christians and non-Christians. Or a book explaining the philosophy of the Qur’an just because it was written by a Muslim? Wouldn’t it make more sense to refuse to read it if it wasn’t? What?

I: Who Is this Book For? IT IS FOR BOTH Christians and non-Christians. It’s designed to show Christians a new dimension of Jesus: Jesus the philosopher. And it’s designed to show non-Christians a new dimension of philosophy, a new philosophy and a new philosopher. It’s not designed to convert them. Or a book explaining the philosophy of the Qur’an just because it was written by a Muslim? Wouldn’t it make more sense to refuse to read it if it wasn’t? What?

The Philosophy of Jesus book.

The Philosophy of Jesus book. Feb 11, 2012 Joshua D. rated it liked it. Recommends it for: philosophy students, those interested in apologetics. I don't have a lot to say about this book other than I'm not sure I'm well versed enough in the finer points of philosophy to appreciate some of the questions Kreeft is trying to answer.

Peter Kreeft in his new book The Philosophy of Jesus explores Jesus as philosopher and explores his philosophy. Just when I thought that Peter Kreeft could not outdo himself, there is this stunning book. As Peter Kreeft states in the front of the book the audience for this book is both the Christian and non-Christian and I would say that the book achieves this admirably. It is also a book for both those trained in philosophy and those who know little or nothing on the subject. Breathtaking insights, no doubt borne of a deep personal spirituality, which provide whole new vista's of context for understanding who Christ is.

George W. Bush in a presidential debate when asked who was his favorite philosopher, remarked "Jesus." He was roundly criticized for this at the time on multiple levels. Many thought it was a silly answer showing his ignorance and others that it was demeaning of Jesus. Peter Kreeft in his new book The Philosophy of Jesus explores Jesus as philosopher and explores his philosophy.

As Peter Kreeft states in the front of the book the audience for this book is both the Christian and non-Christian and I would say that the book achieves this admirably. It is also a book for both those trained in philosophy and those who know little or nothing on the subject. He defines the terms he uses along the way to ensure he leaves nobody behind. This book is also not full of technical philosophical or theological language and though while at times some of these terms are used his writing is very clear.

The book is divided into four major chapters:

* Jesus' Metaphysics (What is real?)
* Jesus' Epistemology (How do we know what is real?)
* Jesus' Anthropology (Who are we who know what is real?)
* Jesus' Ethics (What should we be to be more real?)

One of the hardest things to teach is to teach something that somebody already believes he knows. As Christians we accept the incarnation, but after a time we can talk about these mysterious things in a monotone. Peter Kreeft in his writing shows none of this tendency and presents Jesus and his teaching in fresh ways that once again invokes how you felt when you first started to believe. It is hard not to get excited once again as you read this book and for a book that deals with philosophical subjects you will be surprised how fast you are swept into the book, as if you were just doing some recreational reading from on of your favorite novelists.

This book is not the overt apologetics such as his outstanding Handbook of Christian Apologetics, but it certainly does show the philosophy of Jesus so that the non-Christian can understand it in a non-combative style and that the Christian will see the deeper dimensions of Jesus the philosopher.

So don't let the title throw you off, this is not a dry text on philosophical subjects, but a book certainly to nourish you.

The "Philosophy of Jesus" is an introductory read for philosophical and theological students. The strength of the text is its Christocentric aim and goal pointing all would be philosophy and philosophers towards Jesus of Nazareth. Kreeft says just enough to wet the appetite for thinking more deeply philosophically and theologically about Jesus.
Brajind
My first reading of a Kreeft. Your considering this book is all you need to buy it. This author's deliberate application of logic on the matter of believing in the Christian doctrine is more than convincing: Quite undeniable actually.
This is philosophy after all, and Kreeft deviates not from the objective academic approach. Most likely to leave you yet stronger in the Faith. And at the very least less doubtful.

The title of this book contains a rather ambiguous genitive. There is some of what you might expect - the "Philosophy of Jesus" as opposed to the philosophy of Plato or Descartes - that is, what Jesus *taught*. But most of the book is taken up with the "Philosophy of Jesus" in the other sense. It is a meditation on philosophy in light of Jesus. Kreeft takes up the major divisions of philosophy - metaphysics, epistemology, anthropology, and ethics - and shows how the revelation of God in Christ deepens and transforms our understanding of each of them. He's asking, not primarily "what did Jesus say about this?", but "what difference does Jesus make?"

Perhaps the simplest formulation of Kreeeft's approach comes nearly three quarters of the way through the book. He writes, "Philosophers seek wisdom. Christ *is* wisdom. (I Corinthians 1:30) Therefore Christ is the fulfillment of philosophy."

Being that Jesus is the only philosopher that is comprehensive in presenting the past, present and future
of man, his work should be in every book on philosophy. This book is the best I have read on the
subject and would be profitable for all students.

Just when I thought that Peter Kreeft could not outdo himself, there is this stunning book. Breathtaking insights, no doubt borne of a deep personal spirituality, which provide whole new vista's of context for understanding who Christ is. I'm picking up the Gospels again with hands trembling at the awesome thing I am taking up to read.

Very well done.
I love Kreeft's down-to-earth style. He makes every thought so logical and approachable. Absolutely recommend this book.
