The Rationality of Theism
Edited by Paul Copan, Paul Moser
Routledge – 2003 – 304 pages
The Rationality of Theism is a controversial collection of brand new papers by thirteen outstanding philosophers and scholars. Its aim is to offer comprehensive theistic replies to the traditional arguments against the existence of God, offering a positive case for theism as well as rebuttals of recent influential criticisms of theism.
' … the overall tone of the book is one of confidence, perhaps best expressed by Koons, who writes that "the evidence for theism has never been so clear and strong as it is now." This book is an excellent introduction to the arguments that give rise to that confidence.' - Religious Studies
