Christian Philosophy and the Christian Life

In J. Aaron Simmons (ed.), Christian Philosophy: Conception, Continuations, and Challenges. New York, NY, USA: (forthcoming)

Kyla Ebels-Duggan

I consider how Christian philosophers should decide which questions are worth asking. I provide an interpretation and defense of Alvin Plantinga’s claim that Christian philosophers should strive for autonomy, and argue that this rules out some ways of settling on our questions. I then argue that the questions in which Christian philosophers should take an interest are those arising from or continuous with a distinctively Christian way of life.
