Review:

Divine Hiddenness may sound like a clumsy philosopher's way of talking, but it is at the heart of much thought. Whether in a university, a church, a bar, or in solitude, nearly everyone has at some time asked: Why does God hide from us? If God exists, why is He not manifest and obvious? Editors Daniel Howard-Snyder and Paul K. Moser have assembled many of the leading voices in the philosophy of religion to offer their views on the subject. There are both philosophers and theologians, skeptics and believers. The result is a scholarly, if occasionally academic, treatment of a thorny problem that has afflicted thinkers for thousands of years. The book ranges from analytic philosophy to theology to some interesting historical treatments of St. John of the Cross, Jonathan Edwards, and Kierkegaard. The volume contains 11 essays, including works by Nicholas Wolterstorff, Peter van Inwagen, and William J. Wainwright. Moser has also compiled an excellent bibliography on the subject, which is especially useful for students of philosophy. --Eric de Place

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. For many people the existence of God is by no means a sufficiently clear feature of reality. This problem, the fact of divine hiddenness, has been a source of existential concern and has sometimes been taken as a rationale for support of atheism or agnosticism. In this collection of essays, a distinguished group of philosophers of religion explore the question of divine hiddenness in considerable detail. The issue is approached from several perspectives including Jewish, Christian, atheist and agnostic. There is coverage of the historical treatment of divine hiddenness as found in the work of Maimonides, St. John of the Cross, Jonathan Edwards, Kierkegaard, and various Biblical writers. A substantial introduction clarifies the main problems of and leading solutions to divine hiddenness. Primarily directed at philosophers of religion, theologians, and scholars of religious studies, this collection could also serve as a textbook for upper-level courses in philosophy of religion.
