Even the most ancient elements of traditional theism may reveal unexpected facets when viewed from an unfamiliar angle. This book explores some recently opened avenues in logic and philosophical analysis which lead to new perspectives on arguments both in defence and criticism of time-honoured religious beliefs. Topics covered include: the nature of divine attributes; the implications of divine benevolence and of divine justice; arguments in support of theism and atheism; and religion and morality.

Industry Reviews

'A book like this one, which does so much to refute the common places of modern agnosticism, is too valuable to be left on the professional philosopher's shelf, though those who are able to follow such arguments will derive great profit from it. It is to be hoped that it will receive a wide circulation and be quickly translated into a more accessible idiom so that ordinary people may more easily grasp its significance.' Gerald Bray, Churchman 'contains some powerful and interesting arguments' Brian Hebblethwaite, Journal of Theological Studies
