Overview

Alvin Plantinga, called by Time magazine "America's leading orthodox Protestant philosopher of God," has had a profound impact on the philosophical discipline.

This book gathers in one place Plantinga's most important work in the philosophy of religion generally and his contribution to the resurgence in Christian philosophy in particular.

Organized into four sections-"Natural Theology and Atheology," "Reformed Epistemology," "Divine Nature and Attributes," and "Christian Philosophy"-these thirteen essays and book excerpts reflect the areas of thought in which Plantinga has been most influential. The volume also includes an Afterword by Plantinga and instructions for accessing his work on the World Wide Web.
