It's a shame philosophy is so difficult.Garrett DeWeese and J. P. Moreland understand this frustration and in this book offer help to make philosophy at least slightly less difficult. In straightforward language with everyday examples, they explain the basics needed to understand philosophical concepts and thus bring clarity to discussions of life's big questions.Students, pastors, campus workers and ordinary Christians will all benefit from this user-friendly guide.
