    C. S. Lewis observed that the most dangerous ideas in a society are not the ones argued, but the ones assumed. And there's little doubt that in most universities across the United States, secularist materialism, in one form or another, is the assumed and unquestioned perspective from which most subjects are understood and taught. So much so, that even professors theoretically committed to open Author: John Stonestreet.   Recently reading Hart’s book on the Experience of God (in which he tackles Atheist Materialism) made me realize that the universe of the false view I was trying to describe was pretty much the same (with a second-storey, of course).

I have only recently heard of David Platt, but from what I have read, I am thoroughly intrigued. Platt has a new book out called Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream, in which he accuses the American church of manipulating Christianity to fit its consumeristic culture.

If you can’t tell already, Platt’s core criticisms are particularly relevant to the issues discussed. Materialism goes contrary to the Christian tradition; even worse (so I’ll argue), it is false.

As I see it, therefore, Christian philosophers ought to be dualists. Now most naturalists, of course, are materialists; but so are a surprising number of Christian philosophers.¹ I’ll argue that this is a mistake. In ‘‘AgainstFile Size: KB. A Philosophy of Christian Materialism offers an intriguing theological vision.

The authors rightly identify weaknesses in earlier forms of Christian realism and flaws in Radical Orthodoxy. They draw from Continental resources not often mined by Christian theologians, while being informed by open and relational thinking characteristic of the Whiteheadian tradition.
