In the so-called “marketplace of ideas,” Christians face countless attacks on and challenges to their faith, many of which engage in subversive rhetoric and logic in order to undermine the whole counsel of God. Whether coming from skeptics, atheist, leftists, cults, or even other Christians, poor logic and dubious reasoning deserve exposure and correction. In his new book, Biblical Logic, Joel McDurmon returns to God’s Word to recover logic and critical thinking from the hands of the enemy, and to expose the fallacies of unbelief and unbiblical ideas.
But is the Bible really the place to turn for logic? Is not logic the domain of scholars and philosophers? The British philosopher John Locke long ago answered this common misconception: “God has not been so sparing to men to make them barely two-legged creatures, and left it to Aristotle to make them rational.” In other words, logic existed and people reasoned and used the critical faculties of their minds long before any philosopher came along to teach about it. God created logic and reasoning as He created man, and He created it for man, and therefore we should find it reasonable that God’s Word has something to say—if not a lot to say—about logic, rationality, and good judgment.
Christ has made us priests and kings (Rev. 1:6). He has determined that His saints shall judge the world, and even judge angels (1 Cor. 6:2–3), and He has thoroughly equipped us to perform these tasks. God’s Word sets the standard of reasoning and law by which we shall judge, and the Bible teaches us this standard—a standard we must follow and to which we ourselves must give account. This new book, Biblical Logic, returns to God’s word to find that standard, and to recover the God-given directives for faithful logic and critical thinking. By this standard, and by this example, God’s saints—you—can indeed discern and judge the world as God has commanded.
“As a result of unbridled emotionalism coupled with the so-called ‘scientific fact’ of evolution, most consider Christianity to be irrational and illogical. Joel McDurmon does an outstanding job of proving Christianity is not only logical, but logic flows from the very character of God.” — www.NiceneCouncil.com
