Summary

In these sermons, the author takes the view that the Bible contains philosophy, not in the sense of academic philosophical argument, but in the sense of presenting a world view which includes many philosophical claims and much thinking on ontological, metaphysical, epistemological, and ethical issues. He explores the general distinction between the letter and the spirit of the Bible in the first sermon, and the philosophy of Paul in the second.
