Item Description...
Looks at Jesus as a complete human being and philosopher, and explores the most radical revolution in the history of philosophy--the differences Jesus made to metaphysics, epistemology, anthropology, and philosophical ethics and politics.

Publishers Description
This book (1) looks at Jesus as a complete human being (as well as divine), therefore also as a philosopher; (2) looks at philosophy as Jesus' pre-modern contemporaries did, as a wisdom, a world-view, and a way of life rather than as a super-science (Descartes, Hegel) or as a servant-science (Hobbes, Hume); and (3) looks at philosophy in light of Jesus rather than at Jesus in light of philosophy.
This work explores the most radical revolution in the history of philosophy, the differences Jesus made to metaphysics (the philosophy of being), to epistemology (the philosophy of knowing), to anthropology (the philosophy of man), and to philosophical ethics and politics. And, besides, it has the greatest ending of any philosophy book in a century.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great reminder  Oct 9, 2008
The Philosophy of Jesus is written to examine the life and teachings of Jesus for His contribution to thought. Kreeft is Catholic, I am an evangelical. I don't feel it takes away from the simplicity and power of his message. This book presents, in an easy to understand way, the affect of the Christ's ministry on our lives today.
The Philosophy of Jesus  Jan 1, 2008
After St. Thomas Aquinas had a glimpse of God he stated that all of his
writings were straw, nothing but straw. P. Kreeft's writing, The Philosophy of Jesus, goes the way of Aquanis's writings. Kreeft has not had a glimpse
of God for which to base his philosophy of Jesus.
Not so interesting...  Nov 14, 2007
Though well written, too much sexual allegory seeps into the pages and creates a strange image of God. A worthy attempt at Logic but at times steered away from Truth due to extra-Biblical doctrines suited only for the Catholic church.
Tiny book; HUGE questions and answers  Oct 5, 2007
Kreeft asks the big questions--what is?, how can we know what is real?, who are we?, and then, how should we live? He points out that "philosophers have thought profoundly about these four questions for over two millennia. Why have they not found answers that are adequate, final, and universally acknowledged?" (p 9)

He finds answers in the philosophy of Jesus, and compares those answers to those that are found in other religions and by other philosophers.

Against the God of the Christians who declares "I AM" there stands the many gods of Hinduism. Kreeft finds it significant that the "East never developed a morality or a politics of human rights" (p 121). The Hebrew God was a God of absolute goodness who instituted a covenant with his people. He was infinite love.

As for what we must know and be, that is also answered by Jesus. We must know ourselves and God, and to know God we must pray.

Buddhism seeks to overcome "the reality of the subject-object dualism" (p 71). Philosophers have fallen into the trap of either materialism or pantheism. Only in Christianity and in learning to become little Christs are these problems solved.

A bit thick for such a thin book, but worth it  Aug 31, 2007
This book is not as clearly written as some of Kreeft's other works, but is worth the effort if you are interested in considering Jesus as the Way/Truth/Life. Through somewhat muddled writing, KReeft brings to life some real home run ideas concerning Jesus' approach to life, knowledge and ethics. The ideas in the book are 5-star, but the writing is 3-star, thus the 4-star rating.
