From Plato to Aristotle toHeidegger, philosophy has often played a key role in the development of theformulations of Christian theology, this despite the protests of those puristswho claim to the contrary that Christian dogma is exclusively divine revelation"unimpeded" by mortal reason. In fact, however, human contribution to variouscreedal formulations of the church throughout the centuries is unmistakable.Christians should be engaged in and articulating their theology with the helpof politics, sociology, history and, yes, philosophy. The message of theincarnation is that God entered into real time and space for the purpose ofrevealing Himself to humanity in terms that it could understand. This is anecessity if the gospel is to be contextualized for each new generation. From Plato to Jesusexplores the philosophicalcurrents that have and are shaping systematic theology. C. Marvin Patechallenges the notion that philosophy should not influence theologicalunderstandings. This book is written as a supplemental or primary textbook fora systematic or historical theology class, and thus, for ease of use, isarranged by the standard theological categories.
