The naturalness of belief : new essays on theism's rationality

Author: Paul Copan; Charles Taliaferro
Publisher: Lanham : Lexington Books, 2018.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This volume exposes naturalism's unnaturalness and defends theism's naturalness and greater explanatory power to account for wide-ranging phenomena in the world and human experience. A broadening of naturalism to accommodate these features means borrowing heavily from-and thus more closely resembling-a theistic worldview.
