Format: Paperback
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.

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!

Format: Paperback
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.
