Vindications of the reasonableness of Christianity by John Locke( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume makes available for the first time critical editions of John Locke's 'A Vindication' and 'A Second Vindication of the Reasonableness of Christianity', in which Locke defends his interpretation of the New Testament and of the Christian Religion against charges of heterodoxy. These works contribute greatly to our understanding of Locke's Christian commitments, which it is now recognized played an important role in shaping his philosophical opinions; they also demonstrate his sophisticaion as a biblical scholar, and the breadth of his theological learning. The texts are accompanied by a historical introduction explaining the origin of the works and setting them in context. In addition to a textual introduction and critical apparatus, editorial notes help to clarify the text. The volume also includes a French translation and abridgment by Pierre Coste, a Huguenot scholar who was patronized by Locke and worked on his translations while residing in Locke's household. This definitive edition is an important contribution to an understanding of the development of modern enlightened Christian attitudes"--Publisher's description, back cover of dust jacket
