Publisher's Description

Thirty years ago, Alvin Plantinga gave a lecture called "Two Dozen (or so) Theistic Arguments," which served as an underground inspiration for two generations of scholars and students. In it, he proposed a number of novel and creative arguments for the existence of God which have yet to receive the attention they deserve. In Two Dozen (or so) Arguments for God, each of Plantinga's original suggestions, many of which he only briefly sketched, is developed in detail by a wide variety of accomplished scholars. The authors look to metaphysics, epistemology, semantics, ethics, aesthetics, and beyond, finding evidence for God in almost every dimension of reality. Those arguments new to natural theology are more fully developed, and well-known arguments are given new life. Not only does this collection present ground-breaking research, but it lays the foundations for research projects for years to come.

Editorial Reviews


"Proofs for the existence of God are always of interest to theologians and philosophers of religion, and the prospect of seriously considering 'two dozen or so' of them from Plantinga is mouth-watering. The arguments themselves are novel and fascinating, and treated by authors of extraordinarily high quality."--Stephen Davis, Russell K. Pitzer Professor of Philosophy, Claremont McKenna College
