What is Philosophy?
Lehigh University Philosophy Department says that “Philosophy is an activity people undertake when they seek to understand themselves, the world they live in, and their relations to the world and each other. Those who study philosophy are engaged in asking, answering, evaluating, and reasoning about some of life’s most basic, meaningful, and difficult questions.”

Where to start? Well, first this free philosophy course gave me an insight into how philosophy works within a Christian’s walk with God. It’s a very important tool to have. Secondly, it got me thinking about how learning more of it will help when working with non-believers. The course was incredibly insightful and left me wanting more.
In this mini-course, I have learned the importance of philosophy and its application in Christian history. I have also learned the contribution of Greek philosophy to the Christian religion. it will help me in my ministry with the right application of the good news of Jesus Christ.
