Product Description

Is there a good God? If so, what do we know about him? Answering the first question before the second often leads to an inadequate response to evil's existence. Defending revelatory materials, Menssen and Sullivan contend that philosophers who ignore God's voice in stories, myths, legal codes, and exhortations work with a woefully impoverished database. 336 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.

Publisher's Description

Is there a good God? And if there is, has that God revealed anything of significance to us? Philosophers pondering these two questions have automatically assumed that the first must be answered before the second.

Sandra Menssen and Thomas Sullivan examine how God's voice can be heard in the content of revelatory claims, stories, myths, poetry, exhortations, legal codes, and more. They argue that rather than taking the written word of any religion out of the philosophical proof equation, those very words should be considered as the voice of the God accused of not existing. The Agnostic Inquirer makes a clear, analytical claim that without these revelatory words, atheists and agnostics are missing a large part of the relevant database of the existence of God, while many theists are working with an impoverished database in trying to explain the foundations of their faith.
