Even the most ancient elements of traditional theism may reveal unexpected facets when viewed from an unfamiliar angle. This book explores some recently opened avenues in logic and philosophical analysis which lead to new perspectives on arguments both in defence and criticism of time-honouredreligious beliefs. Topics covered include: the nature of divine attributes; the implications of divine benevolence and of divine justice; arguments in support of theism and atheism; and religion and morality.
George N. Schlesinger is at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
