Rock the cradle, rule the world
Okay, my kids are no longer cradle bound, but you know what I mean. I am teaching my teen philosophy, his text is "Philosophical Foundations for a Christian Worldview" by Craig and Moreland (IVP). Sproul's "Blueprint for Thinking" CD series is an easy to understand overview of general philosophical principles; it is a great supplement to my 626 page college level text. Don't worry, you don't HAVE to read a textbook--this series is also a perfect introduction for the adult or teen who is not quite ready to tackle philosophy 101. I am so excited to have this resource! In fact, I will be allowing my teen to teach RC Sproul's series to a group of adults and families (with the assistance of the workbook.) I want the teens to learn, teach, and own this stuff, because they are going to need it. If you are concerned about your teens, consider this resource. They might not end up ruling the world, but at least the world won't end up ruling them.
Very concise, yet insightful !
Dr. R.C. Sproul's approach on contemporary thinking resulted very well based on simple and recognized facts, especially for those with knowledge on certain subjects. Great exposition,wonderful learning experience!
A fantastic introduction to apologetics
The Blueprint for Thinking series introduced me officially to R.C. Sproul and his brilliancy. I grew up in a Christian home, but never really knew why I believed what I believed. Throughout life, I struggled almost constantly with praying to a God I wasn't sure existed; I'd been assuming He existed based wholly on my upbringing, not on evidence around me. This series changed my entire thought process on the matter, if the process I used could even be considered "thoughtful". Thinking is an exercise, not a static means of garnering information. The Blueprint for Thinking series gives you the basic foundations of a world view from the Christian perspective, but in way that is easy to understand and absorb. I give this series five stars because it launched me into a full investigative mode where thinking (I pray) is at the forefront. I understand God more thoroughly now than ever before, and I have been grounded in my faith.
