Kreeft, 2002. Socrates Meets Jesus - Introduction

Kreeft, Peter. Socrates Meets Jesus: History’s Greatest Questioner Confronts the Claims of Christ. Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, 2002.

Kreeft was inspired to write this book by Kierkegaard’s observation that Socrates and Jesus were history’s two greatest teachers. He took courage to write by the fact that disciples of Socrates met with disciples of Jesus in Acts 17. He will couch the discussion in a setting he calls, “Have It Divinity School,” and will trust that the reasoning God gave all humans and especially Socrates will enable him to find the truth of God even in a heterodox divinity school.
