When asked how he would characterize himself, Andree Troost said: “I am a philosopher of theology” (Geelhoed and De Boer 2002). Troost studied theology, but he read more philosophical than theological books. He learned from the reformational philosophy of Dooyeweerd and Vollenhoven how to be a critical theologian, and critical he was: in the many articles he wrote for Philosophia Reformata, Troost joined issue with theologians who do not realize that philosophy comes first, attempting to lay bare the presuppositions of theology. The same he did in the two books he published in 2004 and 2005. Troost stopped writing for Philosophia Reformata in 2001. He passed away on 18 March 2008.
