Religion, Reason, and Revelation is a very thorough philosophical text. While those unfamiliar with Clark's thinking will find this book a most unusual read, I believe that those who think through his arguments will find them intriguing. He was certainly one of the most original thinkers of any era, and those who thoughtfully read this book will enjoy having their minds stretched and their beliefs challenged.

Gordon Haddon Clark (1902-1985) was a philosopher and Calvinist theologian and taught philosophy at the college level for most of his life. He was an expert in pre-Socratic and ancient philosophy and was noted for his rigor in defending Platonic realism against all forms of empiricism, in arguing that all truth is propositional, and in applying the laws of logic. The Trinity Foundation continues to publish his writings and other books as well.

If you enjoy being challenged, then this is for you. Gordon H. Clark is a very deep and thought provoking writer. He has a great vocabulary and if you are like me, you will need a dictionary. The last chapter on "God and Evil", I found extremely helpful to me.

slow reading but very informative

An excellent book which is worth more than one - the chapter on God and Evil alone is worth five stars even if the other 80% was worthless - but it's not. Each chapter in this book contains more accessible and condensed truth than anything since the age of Scholasticism, and surpasses a typical ponderous tome by one of the better verbose authors. The author stays on point like a laser and writes decisively (contra any other philosopher), to the detriment of any feeling of wandering in a forest of ideas (contra e.g. NT Wright) - or getting further information from the scanty further references, apparatus, and bibliography - but to no great advantage as to clearly communicating that which is set forth.

Clark is without a doubt one of the two or three greatest theologians since Aquinas and is on the single-hand shortlist for philosophers. His work is woefully underappreciated and underknown.

Thank you to Trinity Foundation Press for reissuing this work inexpensively (for the price of a fiction book) as part of a three-book omnibus in a very handsomely-bound, beautifully-typeset burgundy cloth volume, containing also 'Three Types of Religious Philosophy' and 'Introduction to Secular Philosophy'.

Gordon Haddon Clark (1902-1985) was an American philosopher and Calvinist theologian, who was chairman of the Philosophy Department at Butler University for 28 years. He wrote many books, such as A Christian View of men and Things (A Treatise Showing that Social Stability Demands a Christian Society), , Thales to Dewey,An Introduction to Christian Philosophy,God and Evil The Problem Solved,God's Hammer: The Bible and Its Critics, etc.

He asserts that "It is essential to define Christianity more exactly by a specific doctrinal system. Romanism is not what is meant. By Christianity we shall mean, to use common names, what is called Calvinism." (Pg. 23) He elaborates, "outside the Bible the most accurate and satisfactory expressions of Christianity are the carefully worded creedal statements of the Westminster Confession." (Pg. 146)

He is critical of fundamentalism, which he describes as "a faith without reason" (pg. 71), and suggests that "Frequently they deplore reason, knowledge, and scholarship." (Pg. 89)

He rejects the idea that God's existence can be demonstrated on the basis of observation of nature. (Pg. 45) He admits, interestingly, that "The idea of a finite god, although it is a non-christian expedient, has nonetheless a certain amount of merit by reason of its honesty." (Pg. 198) Later, he argues that "As God cannot sin, so in the next place, God is not responsible for sin, even though he decrees it." (Pg. 240)

This is a substantial augmentation of the explanation of Clark's apologetic approach.

The back cover of this book has the following quotes from book critics:
"...the literary style is a model of English clarity...."
"...the logic is beautiful...."
"...refreshing honesty pervades the entire book...."
These critics are not exaggerating! This book is one of the great masterpieces of Christian philosophy and apologetics. The flagship of Clark's thought, it is brilliantly written and reasoned from beginning to end.
Religion, Reason, and Revelation is made up of five chapters. The first answers the question, Is Christianity a religion? Here Clark lays the groundwork from which he reasons. He covers the issues of what religion is, emotion v. intellect, the description v. presupposition, meaningful words, and what constitutes Christianity.
The second chapter deals with the relationship between faith and reason. Clark argues that the only true relationship between the two is a reason that is founded on faith. In his usual manner, Clark critiques natural theology, the cosmological argument, impiricism, irrationalism, and everyone from Hume to Hodge.
The third chapter covers inspiration and language, what the Bible claims, objections to inspiration, problems with linguistics, logical positivism, and the like.
The fourth chapter is Clark's thought on revelation and morality. How can men know what is right and wrong? Is there a universal standard for ethical decision-making? What roles do experience and reason play in determining morality?
The final chapter is God and Evil, the perennial objection to Christianity. After explaining what he believes to be the biblical view of the problem of evil, Clark forcefully asserts, "Let it be unequivocally said that this view certainly makes God the cause of sin." He further explains the law's relation to both God and man, causality v. authorship, etc.
As one can see, Clark dives into each topic and discusses them great breadth and depth. Religion, Reason, and Revelation is a very thorough philosophical text.
While those unfamiliar with Clark's thinking will find this book a most unusual read, I believe that those who think through his arguments will find them intriguing. He was certainly one of the most original thinkers of any era, and those who thoughtfully read this book will enjoy having their minds stretched and their beliefs challenged.

A great place to start reading Clark if you have never encountered him. This book includes Clark's famous definitive answer to the problem of evil in the chapter, "God and Evil," which is alone worth any price you may have to pay for this volume. Precise in its definitions, tightly argued, and to the point in its articulation of Biblical Christianity. A true treasure! Clark must be the most untapped resource in modern evangelicalism, and the one who can help it most. Do not miss this!
