Why Foundationalism? (It's been a long time.)

Matt, this is coming from an amateur (who hasn’t really touched the subject since two semesters ago), but when I studied epistemology, I was always very frustrated about what was a basic belief and what wasn’t. At times I’ve thought I could be a moderate foundationalist, but the basic beliefs all seem to cave in and become interrelated to each other. I’ve sort of decided foundationalism vs. coherentism isn’t something one HAS to get worked up about (perhaps they’re two ways of saying the same thing), but I’m still a tad bit curious about the differences. Any chance you could outline how foundationalism fits with a Christian worldview , in laymens’ terms?

On a lighter note, I’m glad my gender is clarified! Apparently Larissa isn’t a girl’s name at first glance!
