Rethinking Philosophy in mild of the Bible analyzes the tips which are important to the philosophy of Kant, Hegel, and Kierkegaard in an effort to exhibit that they're biblical in foundation, either ontologically and traditionally. Brayton Polka argues that Schopenhauer has an altogether fake notion of the elemental rules of the Bible—creation, the autumn of Adam and Eve, and covenantal love—and of Christianity, which leaves his philosophy irredeemably contradictory, as he himself recognizes. the purpose, then, is to teach that our smooth values, the values that represent modernity, are biblical in foundation. it's only after we come to appreciate that modernity is biblical from the start and that the Bible is glossy unto the tip that we can triumph over the competition, so obvious at the present time, among philosophy and theology, among cause and religion, and among the secular and the spiritual. Polka makes vital the excellence that Kierkegaard attracts among Christianity and Christendom: Christianity represents the arrival into historic life of the one person; Christendom represents Christian values which are rationalized in pagan phrases. As Kierkegaard exhibits us, if God has regularly existed without end, then he hasn't ever existed perpetually, then he hasn't ever come into ancient lifestyles for the only person. the excellence among Christianity and Christendom is the excellence no longer among religion and cause, yet among fact and idolatry. whereas theology and philosophy each one signify the reality of Christianity, Schopenhauer’s idolatrous suggestions of religion, at the very least of cause, signify Christendom.
