Not a logic textbook as much as Poythress' argument for where the discipline sits within the scheme of things. Repetitive, dull and rote stuff. Not recommended.

Big face-palm moment in the introductory chapters when after claiming that the only people who can really "get" logic are Christians he proceeds to make some major blunders in explaining the differences between truth, validity and soundness (pp. 48-49). Uh, yeah. Let's tone it down a bit there dude.

Copi's Logic beats this attempt at profundity, hands down. ( )
