Nature’s Case for God is an excellent exploration of the ways in which nature testifies to God. By relying on Scripture to teach us about the testimony from nature, the book avoids the difficulties involved in attempting independently to find God. Included in the book is attention to human nature, especially the testimony of conscience. In his new book, Proofs of God: Classical Arguments from Tertullian to Barth (Baker Academic, ), leading theologian Dr. Matthew Levering presents a thoroughgoing critical survey of the proofs of God’s existence for readers interested in traditional Christian responses to the problem of atheism. Beginning with Tertullian and ending with Karl Barth, Levering covers twenty-one theologians.
The best books on Atheist Philosophy of Religion recommended by Graham Oppy. From the work of an 18th century atheist priest, to recent research in the cognitive anthropology of religion, atheist philosopher of religion Graham Oppy discusses the books that have been most influential to him.. Interview by Charles J. Styles. In , Watchman Nee made a similar argument in his book, Normal Christian Faith. A person who claims to be God must belong to one of three categories: First, if he claims to be God and yet in fact is not, he has to be a madman or a lunatic. Second, if he is neither God nor a lunatic, he has to be a liar, deceiving others by his lie.
Anthony’s new book is The God Argument: The Case against Religion and for Humanism. *** What is your religious background? I was brought up in a non-religious household and was first presented with religious ideas in school; they did not persuade me but on the contrary seemed non-rational and misleading. Readers of his book who are looking for an off-ramp from the current cultural predicament will no doubt try to accept his argument. But the real question is whether what Vines claims is true and faithful to the Bible as the Word of God. His argument, however, is neither true nor faithful to Scripture. It is, nonetheless, a prototype of the kind of.

Moral Arguments for the Existence of God (Stanford. The God Argument by A.C. Grayling is an impressive work. The book is split into two simple parts: against religion and for humanism. The first part is an unsurprising step by step deconstruction of religion.
Several well-thought out arguments are presented including: for every good thing done in the name of religion there is a ghastly, horrific Cited by: The God Argument: The Case Against Religion and for Humanism by A.C.
Grayling “The God Argument" is a very respectful, thought-provoking and accessible book that addresses the case against religion while making the compelling case for a superior ethical way of living, humanism.
Accomplished author and English philosopher, A.C. Grayling /5(). Though the book's argument builds primarily from philosophical foundations, Baggett and Walls draw on scripture where appropriate, most notably in the final chapter which powerfully and passionately wraps up the argument presented throughout the book.

This accessible but serious introduction to the design problem brings together new perspectives from prominent scientists and philosophers.
Philosophy (Chapters ): The cosmological argument (chapter 1) and the moral argument (chapter 2) are good, well established arguments in favour of a deistic God. There are much better books out there on these, but this book functions as a 4/5(41).
A posteriori arguments for the existence of God can be arranged in an order by the generality of their premises. The cosmological argument argues from the fact that there is a universe at all; one form of argument from design argues from the operation of laws of nature (i.e.
that all the constituents of the Universe behave in a law-like way), and another form of argument from design argues.
An Argument of the Book of Job Related Media. Job learned that he acted foolishly by challenging God. The presenting problem of the book was why do the righteous suffer. God's defense did not concern a vindication of His justice in permitting evil to exist. Therefore, the realized problem of the book was: (1) who controls evil and suffering.
If you think this God-as-the-condition-of-existence argument is rubbish, you need to say why. And unlike for the superhero version, scientific evidence won't clinch the deal.
The question isn't a. The argument for God’s existence that Gaven Kerr discusses and defends in this book is a very interesting argument in a couple of respects. First of all, this is an argument which doesn’t in an obvious way appear in Aquinas’ list of the Five Ways in the Summa Theologiae.
1 This argument is a personal composite and amplification of several outlines by Harold W. Hoehner and John D. Grassmick from unpublished class notes in Romans, Dallas Theological Seminary, Spring 2 This was an abhorrent title to the Greek mind, but to the Semitic mind it was a title of honor.

The book is a must read, not least because it delivers a summary of a large gamut of philosophical-theological and non theological writings. The book is a reference and it therefore gives you an idea about how far arguments for the existence of god have reached/5.
A number of recent books and articles would have you believe that—somehow—science has now disproved the existence of God. We know so much about how the. There are many arguments for and against the existence of God, and this book is not intended to be a compendium of them.
Rather it offers a critical assessment of what are, beyond dispute, six of the most important arguments for God within the Western theological tradition, and couples that analysis.

Packer’s book offers a concise and compelling argument unpacking how evangelism and the sovereignty of God co-exist, and if properly understood, enhance one another. In this book, Packer isn’t defending the doctrine of God’s sovereignty, per se. He’s arguing that the doctrine of divine sovereignty doesn’t.

(By 1 through 10 and the principle of reductio ad absurdum) 12) So God exists. (From 11) Anselm’s argument for God’s existence, as we can see above, moves from God’s essence to God’s existence.
The argument which you present: “God has no beginning and therefore he has always existed” is *not* a statement of the cosmological argument but a straw man argument of your own devising.
