Provides a well-informed, up-to-date, and lively debate on the existence of God.
This concise, up-to-date, and accessible discussion of the existence of God is presented as a point/counterpoint debate: Craig argues for God's existence and Sinnott-Armstrong argues against it. Employing common language and concrete examples, the authors formulate their arguments in light of recent developments in science, religion, and philosophy. Avoiding overly esoteric arguments, they directly address the issues that concern non-specialists who are wondering about God, such as religious experience, the Bible, evil, eternity, the origin of the universe, design, and the supposed connection between morality and the existence of God. By assuming a traditional concept of God in their discussion, the authors ensure that they are truly addressing each other's viewpoints and engaging in a disagreement over a unified issue. The book is composed of six chapters that alternate between Craig and Sinnott-Armstrong, so that each separate point can be discussed as it arises. This lively and direct dialogue will stimulate students regardless of whether or not they believe in God.
