About this title


Did God play fair with Adam and Eve? Why does God permit such catastrophes as genocides, famines, and wars? Is God free to act in any way at all? Does He know everything - even in the future? Can God do the impossible? What limits, if any, are there to God's power? Is God's existence self-evident? These are just some of the questions and puzzles that continue to pique the curiosity of philosophers, theologians, and interested observers of the Judeo-Christian tradition. In What Is God?, editor Kenneth G. Lucey has carefully selected from among the many essays of noted philosopher of religion Richard R. La Croix a fascinating group of works that explores these and other perennial questions in the philosophy of religion.

In an accessible style that enhances his thoughtful discussion, La Croix introduces many provocative issues that have occupied the minds of Western thinkers for centuries. Breaking through the quagmire of confusion and obfuscation that often surrounds talk of God and His attributes, La Croix distinguishes and prioritizes the essential questions and relevant side issues that must be confronted if clarity is ever to be achieved in this area.

The clear and concise nature of each penetrating essay makes What Is God? an excellent model for doing philosophy and a tool that can be used by professionals and laypersons alike.

Shipping Terms:

SALES TAX: The AbeBooks checkout system cannot detect when California sales tax must be added to your purchase price. As a bona fide California reseller, if we are shipping to a point within the state of California, we are required to collect state sales tax. After confirming availability, we will instruct AbeBooks to request your approval of the sales tax necessary based on the selling price of your purchase. SHIPPING CHARGES: Please note that about 13.5% of the shipping and handling charge is retained by AbeBooks as a fee levied against the bookseller and not passed along for purchasing postage and packaging supplies. That is much of the reason why the shipping charge is significantly higher than actual postage costs. This is especially true for international shipping where international postal costs are high to begin with. Occasionally (such as when ordering a set of books, it will be necessary for us to ask domestic buyers for some additional shipping funds. In this case, after confirming your book(s) is available, we will ask AbeBooks to request appropriate additional shipping charges. In practice, this is a rare occurrence on domestic orders. See below for international shipping. PACKING: All books will be carefully packed to insure safe arrival. We use either quality shipping boxes or other shipping containers augmented by bubble, paper cushioning, or cardboard chipboard to insure safe delivery in the same condition as book was sent. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Our default shipping cost is for shipping in a flat rate global priority envelope, small box, or flat rate bag. If your book is too large or too expensive to ship in these containers we will be asking AbeBooks to request adequate additional funds so we can ship your book safely and securely. All international shipments will be listed as books-merchandise on customs forms with value as actual invoice cost. No exceptions. If you have any concerns, please contact us via e mail prior to placing an order for an accurate shipping quotation.
