Must Christian Philosophy Be Directly About Christ? Reply to Davis

by Tedla G. Woldeyohannes

In his reply to my paper, Richard Davis argues against my claim that philosophical work on the project of natural theology can and should count as work on Christian philosophy.

He then proposes that for a philosophical work to count as a work of Christian philosophy it should be directly about Christ. Davis’ view would commit one to a rejection of a large body of work done by Christian philosophers since there is a large body of work on Christian philosophy that is not directly about Christ.

In this reply, I raise some concerns that suggest that Davis’ proposed conception of Christian philosophy is too narrow and there are good reasons to resist Davis’ suggestion as to what counts as Christian philosophy.
