A Missed Opportunity: Reply to Moser

by Tedla G. Woldeyohannes

Paul K. Moser’s objection to my paper goes as follows: My claim about what can or should count as work of Christian philosophy requires empirical evidence from statistical sociology. Since neither of us is qualified to evaluate such empirical claims my challenge to Moser’s conception of Christian philosophy was not a real challenge.

In this paper, I provide reasons why Moser’s objection fails. Furthermore, I discuss the role of the project of natural theology in a conception of Christian philosophy. Also, I provide a sketch of a Christian philosophy that identifies the Jewish-Christian God as Creator and Redeemer without pitting the so-called “God of the philosophers” against “the God of the Scriptures.”
