John Warwick Montgomery
3rd revised editionISBN 3-932829-80-8ISSN 1436-0292
Verlag für Kultur und Wissenschaft(Culture and Science Publ.)Dr. Thomas Schirrmacher
Professor Montgomery, while a student at Cornell University, had contact with Norman Malcolm, disciple and closefriend of Wittgenstein, and cut his teeth in formal logic under the instruction of Max Black, allegedly one of the very fewto have understood on first reading Russell and Whitehead‘s argumentation in their
Principia Mathematica 
. Montgomery‘suniversity teaching career in history, law, literature, and theology, combined with that philosophical background, led tothe production of the present work, which offers a comprehensive apologetic for classical Christianity.Consisting of over 1,800 propositions in logical sequence, Montgomery‘s
is accompanied by detailedscripture, name, and subject indexes. The coverage is remarkable, embracing logic, literature, history, myth, science,philosophy, jurisprudence, political theory, and theology – interspersed throughout with the wit and rapier thrusts of abarrister at home in adversarial contexts.Wittgenstein‘s
having demonstrated the limits of any non-transcendental attempt to understand theworld, ended with the proposition, “Of that which one cannot speak, one must remain silent.” Montgomery, after settingforth in depth the overwhelming case for the very transcendental revelation for which Wittgenstein longed but neverfound, concludes: “Whereof one
speak, thereof one must
be silent.”The
Tractatus Logico-Theologicus 
purports to break new ground apologetically, as did the
Tractatus Logico- Philosophicus 
epistemologically. It should be of particular interest to philosophers of religion, theologians, pastors,historians of ideas, and to everyone seeking solid answers for the ultimate questions which plague all of us at one timeor another, especially during what St John of the Cross labeled “the dark night of the soul.”
Professor Montgomery, a UK and US citizen, resides in England and in France. He is the author and editor of more than fifty books in five languages (for information about his other publications, see

Who‘s Who in the World.“The name of John Warwick Montgomery deserves to be mentioned alongside of C. S. Lewis and Francis Schaefferas one of the 20th century’s most articulate defenders of historic Christianity. Written in the style of the earlyWittgenstein,
Tractatus Logico-Theologicus 
is vintage Montgomery. It brings together and updates several decadesof his thought, as it provides a clear, articulate defense of the truth of Christianity, the existence of God, theinerrancy of Holy Scripture, and the fundamental importance of Christian revelation for addressing the humancondition. I know of no other book like it, and given the renewed focus on religion in these troubled yet pluralistictimes,
Tractatus Logico-Theologicus 
is must reading for anyone who wants to know how to choose a religionintelligently.”J. P. Moreland,Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University, La Mirada, California“John Warwick Montgomery is one of the most important apologists for biblical Christianity in our time. This is his
magnum opus 
. In it he refutes pluralism (the view that all religions are just different ways to God and none is asuperior way of salvation) and postmodernism (the view that there is no discoverable truth that is both universaland absolute); he then sets out the evidence validating Christianity’s truth claim.
