Publisher's Summary

Through philosophy and religion, humanity seeks answers to its greatest questions. Now, you are invited to explore philosophy and religion with Fr. Joseph J. Godfrey.
In the second century, the theologian Tertullian asked, "What has Athens to do with Jerusalem?" As you will see, the history and methods of philosophy are deeply intertwined with those of religion. Learning about the philosophy of religion will help you understand your own Christian faith as never before.
In these insightful lectures, you will join a leading expert in exploring ideas that have captured the imaginations of scholars and the everyday believers alike. Along the way, you'll explore the insights of Thomistic philosophy, continental philosophy, and analytic philosophy. With fresh understanding, you'll explore familiar topics like the idea of God as Creator, arguments for God's existence, the concept of evil, miracles, and "design" arguments. You will consider knowing, believing, opining, and having faith in relation to reason. In particular, you will focus on Catholic concerns, such as faith and reason, as well as characteristic ways of speaking about God. You will examine Catholic thought about religion in relation to atheism and postmodernism.
Ultimately, religion is a matter of hope. As French philosopher Maurice Blondel said, "Authentic philosophy is the holiness of reason." These lectures seek to reaffirm your faith by leading you to understand the reason behind religion. Enjoy this vital course today.
