Pathways of Wisdom

Full Product Description

'I am eager for your company on this journey,' writes Maurice Sinclair. 'Our aim is to discover what happens when the wisdom of man, as expressed in schools of philosophy down the ages, meets the wisdom of God, as revealed in Scripture. We want to find out if this interaction will be a perfect blending, or an uneasy truce, or a dramatic explosion!'

With freshness and insight, Sinclair surveys a panorama of earthly wisdoms across the full course of human history, and around the world, to the present day. He helps us to grasp some principal ideas from key philosophers, without the intricacies or abstractions, and with a minimum of technical language. Throughout, he keeps in mind wisdom 'from above', from the eternal perspective of GodÂ’s revelation in Christ. Taking the long view, the history of wisdom turns out to be 'his story'.

In this fast-paced and accessible volume, Sinclair's essential purpose is to encourage us to seek wisdom for love's sake - a wisdom and a love that are as practical as they are visionary - and to marshal the reasons for our hope in Christ.

Pathways of Wisdom by Maurice Sinclair was published by Inter-Varsity Press in April 2010 and is our 54810th best seller. The ISBN for Pathways of Wisdom is 9781844744251.

'Maurice Sinclair shines the light of Christian essentials onto our 'ill-digested philosophy' and provides a nourishing feast for all those seeking wisdom for living and leading in the 21st century. His engaging clarity banishes many of our contemporary, godless assumptions and makes one eager to learn more. Pathways of Wisdom is an invigorating survey of a rich heritage and will give every reader new confidence in the recovery of biblical, structured, authoritative thinking for everyday responsibilities.' - David Urquhart, Bishop of Birmingham
