The last few decades have witnessed a stunning resurgence of philosophical interest in God and theology. Although much of this renaissance on the rationality of theistic belief apart from evidence, there is a gathering movement in philosophical circles to re-establish natural theology's legitimate role in justifying belief in God's existence.
The Blackwell Companion to Natural Theology gathers together original contributions from a variety of leading philosophers to provide a timely and thought-provoking exploration of the existence of God as manifested in the existence, order, and character of the natural world. Each of the in-depth essays explore at length a particular theistic argument-from contingency and consciousness to reason and religious experience-with the distinguished authors providing analysis and evaluation of each argument, offering original insights and new perspectives on perennial questions.
The result is an engaging and deeply profound examination of the question of God's existence based on human reason and evidence from the natural world.
