Richard Swinburne presents a substantially rewritten and updated edition of his most celebrated book. No other work has made a more powerful case for the probability of the existence of God. Swinburne argues compellingly that the existence of the universe, its law-governed nature and fine-tuning, human consciousness and moral awareness, and evidence of miracles and religious experience, all taken together (and despite the occurrence of pain and suffering), make it likely that there is a God.

Elonore Stump, The Thomist `He has ... set a highwater mark for inductive discussion of the existence of God.' Richard E. Creel, Journal of the American Academy of Religion `A first-rate contribution to philosophical theology.' William Rowe, Philosophical Books
