9780199755448: Debating Christian Theism

Comprising groundbreaking dialogues by many of the most prominent scholars in Christian apologetics and the philosophy of religion, this volume offers a definitive treatment of central questions of Christian faith. The essays are ecumenical and broadly Christian, in the spirit of C.S. Lewis's Mere Christianity, and feature lucid and up-to-date material designed to engage readers in contemporary theistic and Christian issues. Beginning with dialogues about God's existence and the coherence of theism and then moving beyond generic theism to address significant debates over such specifically Christian doctrines as the Trinity and the resurrection of Jesus, Debating Christian Theism provides an ideal starting point for anyone seeking to understand the current debates in Christian theology.

Review:


"[Debating Christian Theism] illustrates how deeply the mysteries of Christianity in particular, and of spiritual faith (or lack of it) in general, engages with a person's entire life-condition--cognitive and affective, commonplace and cosmic. J.P. Moreland, Chad Meister, and Khaldoun A. Sweis have done a masterful job at collecting a volume of contributions which treat these matters seriously and illuminate them impressively."--Essays in Philosophy


"A wide-ranging and ambitious book For range of topics, quality of argumentation, and up-to-date currency with recent scholarship, this volume is very hard to beat. I know of no comparable volume that shares that constellation of virtues . A very good resource for undergraduate and graduate seminars in philosophy of religion, theology, and apologetics."--Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews


"Accessible to educated readers and advanced undergraduate students, this volume provides a handy summary of key positions in important debates."--CHOICE


"Debating Christian Theism contains new essays on central topics by a number of distinguished scholars. It should not only prove of general interest but would provide an excellent supplemental text for undergraduate and graduate courses in philosophy of religion or theology." --William Wainwright, author of Religion and Morality


"Pro/con pairs of essays, fairness, high-level discussion, rare breadth-all these combine to make this book an excellent representation of, and addition to, current debates regarding Christian theism." --Keith E. Yandell, author of Philosophy of Religion


"Debating Christian Theism is a groundbreaking book... truly paradigm-shifting... Every serious Christian apologist and Christian philosopher, and every serious critic of Christianity, should read this fascinating book." --Philosophia Christi


"[T]he engaged mind can find here much that deserves rumination. The various topics can be read at any pace, and there is no need to read the topics in any particular order. It is a treat to have a single volume present not just 'both sides of the argument,' but in the words of serious thinkers on both sides of the argument (and not one side attempting to relate or minimize the other side s points). The ability to get a solid sense of the current state of these debates is the volume s chief virtue. Recommended for graduate students or advanced readers, with some of the essays suitable for a broader audience."--Theological Studies
