Editorial Reviews

"With these minor criticisms in mind, Holley's work should becommended for its unique and provocative approach of defendingreligious belief in the age of modernity which, at the same time,defends naturalism and atheism. He has revealed to us that one neednot be legitimized at the expense of the other." (InternationalJournal For Philosophy of Religion, 8 January 2011)

"Holley makes strong but subtle arguments for a transcendentagent conception of God, and the need for this image for a coherentmorality, the value of revelation-bearing traditions, and thepriority of practice for discovering belief." (CHOICE,September 2010)"The question of the existence of God has been partof the philosophical debate ...with arguments advanced for andagainst it. In this heartfelt ... argument for God’sexistence, the author studies the subject from every perspective.Echoes of ancient thinkers as well as more contemporary observersof the religious scene are well represented herein. Holley isclearly well versed in the arguments on both sides of the question.And he shows some insight into those who find belief in God to be athing devoutly to be avoided even while espousing belief as part ofhis own life. In the end, Holley chooses faith over doubt andoffers guidelines for those seeking an experience with the divine.His observations are well worth reading." (PublishersWeekly, January 2010)
