What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"The Companion contains papers on a rich diversity of topics thatare representative of the new natural theology that emerged in the1970s with books by Alvin Plantinga, William Craig and others. Therapidly evolving lines of thought are increasingly influential inthe field of philosophy and the essays in this collection are"cutting edge" works, such as the very recent formulation of a newversion of the ontological argument for God's existence by RobertMaydole. The high quality of the essays make this book requiredreading for philosophers of religion and its diverse topics willinterest thinkers in many fields."
Quentin Smith, Western Michigan University

"This collection is a major contribution to the intellectualdiscussion of classical theism. Its philosophically sophisticatedessays provide essential background reading for all those engagedin serious debate about the rationality of belief in Godtoday."
John F. Haught, Georgetown University

"I used to think natural theology was a dead area and not worthyof mourning. The scholarship represented by this volume hasconvinced me I was wrong. The Blackwell Companion to NaturalTheology aptly demonstrates why natural theology has become anexciting scholarly area again. These essays combine cutting-edgephilosophy with recent scientific advancements to provide athorough, timely resource balancing confidence and humility, rigourand readability."
Justin L. Barrett, University of Oxford
