Robert Merrihew Adams has been a leader in renewing philosophical respect for the idea that moral obligation may be founded on the commands of God. This collection of Adams's essays, two of which are previously unpublished, draws from his extensive writings on philosophical theology that discuss metaphysical, epistemological, and ethical issues surrounding the concept of God--whether or not God exists, what God is or would be like, and how we ought to relate ourselves to such a being. Adams studies the relation between religion and ethics, presenting a study of moral arguments for theistic belief. In several essays, contemporary studies in the metaphysics of individuality, possibility and necessity, and counterfactual conditionals are applied to issues surrounding the existence of God and the problems of evil.
