Hume's moral theory was the most important contribution to the sustained debate among the British Moralists of the 17th and 18th centuries. J. L. Mackie's classic text examines this debate and provides an excellent introduction to some of the main problems of moral philosophy

The miracle of theism : arguments for and against the existence of God by J. L Mackie( Book )
21 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 1,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The Miracle of Theism, J.L. Mackie examines the arguments for and against the existence of God from an atheistic perspective. John Mackie is a highly respected twentieth century philosopher and along with Anthony Flew has been one of the most capable contemporary proponents of atheism. Written almost a quarter of a century ago, "The Miracle of Theism" remains a classic in the field of religious philosophy and is widely considered to be one of the best-stated arguments for atheism in print. Unfortunately, many popular works supporting the atheistic perspective come across as unduly angry and self-righteous. In contrast, Mackie's work is a much-needed breath of fresh air. One may disagree with Mackie while at the same time respecting his views
