Why Should I Study Philosophy?

How analytically do you think? We know that ideas have consequences so shouldn't we know what the ideas that run the world mean? Do you want to grow in your ability to understand and discern philosophical ideas through a Biblical framework? Dr. Paul Copan will explain why and how Christians should study philosophy. We’ll look at the role of the mind in the life of faith on this edition of Equipped!
