Logic must be to the glory of God

If you ever wanted a comprehensive read on logic from a Christian worldview, here is the book for you

LogicBook Description
For Christians looking to improve critical thinking skills, here is an accessible introduction to the study of logic as well as an in-depth treatment of the discipline from a professor with six academic degrees and over 30 years experience teaching. Questions for further reflection are included at the end of each chapter as well as helpful diagrams and charts for use in college and graduate-level classrooms.
--Vern Poythress has undertaken a radical recasting of the study of logic in this revolutionary work from a Christian worldview.

One Reviewer writes: Most writers of logic books seem to go out of their way to make their writing and explanations as difficult as possible. I have always wondered how most writers of logic are so ill-logical in their sentence structure and descriptions. Poythress makes logic about as easy as one can be in writing logic. Because of the words "A God-Centered Approach" in the book's title, most non-religious universities are unlikely to widely adopt the book. That is a shame. Most of life is not difficult to understand; most people only make it sound that way for ill-logical reasons.
