-Publisher

A carefully thought out defense of Christian theism from an intellectual heaveyweights -- yet also written with a light touch..^- "An intellectualy stretching but also fundamentally accessible book from one of the most interesting philosophical voices in the English speaking world". -- Martin Warner, Lecturer in Philosophy, Warwich University^Stephen Clark uses philosophical enquiry to construct and defend an orthodox Christian theism that is intellectually and otherwise credible. He engages openly with contemporaries such as Don Cupitt and Richard Dawkins to offer a religion that "allows us to acknowledge the reality, the beauty, the demands that constitute the world we live in, without despairing of success or putting too much of our trust in easy victories". A rigorous and thorough defense of the Christian world picture.
-Publisher

The author sets out to show that there are good philosophical reasons for theism, and Christian theism in particular. He explores the assumptions which underpin our philosophical and everyday thinking alike, examines the construction of the arguments used to support them, and tests the sturdiness and the make-up of their props and foundations.
