Why does reason work?

This is a question we will explore in my new book, The Reason of Reason. I think there are only three possible answers: The universe, God (some kind of intelligent omni-being), or ‘unknown’.  If we dismiss ‘unknown’ as not a real answer at all then of course there are only two.  This is philosophy, of the sort that a college undergrad encounters in, say, Philosophy of Mind, Philosophy or Religion, or even Intro to Philosophy.  But it is also a kind of theology known as Natural Theology.  Today in academia there seems to be a great divide between philosophy and theology, but in centuries past that was not the case.

*There is a 14-point syllogism that captures my whole argument in the Read More section. You can order your copy of The Reason of Reason on Amazon

What we could never do, God did!

As Abraham walked with his son to the mountain where he was to sacrifice him, Abraham’s son asked, “The fire and wood are here, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?” Abraham replied, “God will provide Himself a lamb.” Christians believe this statement was prophetic and pointed to an event in which God would sacrifice a perfect lamb that would bring about reconciliation between sinful man and Himself.

We as Americans are a mixed blend of flavors.  We are like a well-flavored salsa that’s been created with an assortment of ingredients providing texture, flavor, and color, a diverse population that offers its own unique profile layer as one might savor the personality that is acquired the more one tastes of it. Just as the variety of ingredients supplements the ultimate experience as a whole as if you tasted a salsa that developed new flavors as you chewed it, so does the influx of ethnicities within our culture ‘salsify’ our society.

Islam, Freewill, and the Theologian of Glory

Martin Luther describes two very different ways to justify ourselves before God

Islam and the Fall of Man


The Quran includes a version of the story of the fall of Adam (Surah 7). Adam and Eve sinned but they asked Allah for forgiveness. He punished them with a mortal life on earth until the resurrection. Since they were forgiven, we can be forgiven. Islam teaches that man is born in a state of submission to God and through submission to God, he can be righteous. His failings can be forgiven. Martin Luther describes this type of theology as a theology of glory.
