Synopsis

The question of whether or not God exists is profoundly fascinating and important. Now two articulate spokesmen--one a Christian the other an atheist--duel over God's existence in an illuminating battle of ideas. In God? A Debate between a Christian and an Atheist William Lane Craig and Walter Sinnott-Armstrong bring to the printed page two debates they held before live audiences preserving all the wit clarity and immediacy of their public exchanges. Avoiding overly esoteric arguments they directly address issues such as religious experience the Bible evil eternity the origin of the universe design and the supposed connection between morality and the existence of God. Employing sharp and humorous arguments each philosopher strikes quickly to the heart of his opponent's case. For example Craig claims that we must believe in God in order to explain objective moral values such as why rape is wrong. Sinnott-Armstrong responds that what makes rape wrong is the harm to victims of rape so rape is immoral even if there is no God. By assuming a traditional concept of God in their discussion the authors ensure that they are truly addressing each other's viewpoints and engaging in a disagreement over a unified issue. The book is composed of six chapters that alternate between Craig and Sinnott-Armstrong so that each separate point can be discussed as it arises. Ideal for courses in the philosophy of religion and introduction to philosophy this lively and direct dialogue will stimulate students and anyone interested in the existence of God regardless of whether or not they believe in God.
