This peer-reviewed, academic volume has two separate editors in chief, with their respective editorial boards. The atheism side is led by Graham Oppy (Australian philosopher, Monash University). The theism side is led by Joseph Koterski, SJ (American philosopher, Fordham University) and includes Christian, Jewish and Muslim philosophers. The two editorial boards worked together to identify twenty key topics in philosophical debates regarding arguments for and against the existence of God (e.g., Religious Experience, Miracles, Our Universe, Human Beings, Science and Religion, etc.). The single volume is split into forty total topics. The format is such that an author taking the side of theism composes a chapter on a topic, followed by an atheism author covering the same topic. The title presents complex philosophical counter perspectives in a lucid manner. It grapples with issues that have occupied philosophers for more than two millennia. These include the sufficiency/insufficiency of an empirical explanation for the existence of the universe; the capacity/incapacity of the empirical sciences to draw conclusions about a possible infinite being; the validity/invalidity of philosophical arguments regarding the existence of an infinite being; various notions of infinity; the "problem of evil," and so on.

The Physics of Theism

Theologians and philosophers of religion have become increasingly interested in science, and especially in the area of physics. From the fine-tuning of universal constants to quantum mechanics, relativity, and cosmology, physics is a subject surprisingly widespread in its connection to the area of religion. Bridging the gap between these fields, however, has proven to be problematic; those in religion and the humanities typically interact with the mathematical sciences only at a popular level, and physicists are often dismissive of metaphysics and religion. The Physics of Theism offers a significant and necessary middle ground between these disciplines, presenting a critical analysis of the ways in which physics is intertwined within matters of religion. Bringing clarity to often complex arguments, Koperski covers a broad range of issues that include divine action, free will, the fine-tuning argument, naturalism, the laws of nature, the relation between science and religion, and the controversy over Intelligent Design. The text is ideal for both students and scholars, providing the appropriate level of explanation of arguments to provide a starting point for research, while at the same time delivering an important contribution to current scholarship.

Can God intervene in this world? If so, to what extent can he intervene? If God intervenes, can we initiate such intervention by prayer? And if God can intervene, why is evil so persistent? Taking up such practical and profound questions, David Basinger (a coauthor of the much-discussed book The Openness of God) offers a probing philosophical examination of freewill theism. This controversial view, put forward most prominently by Clark Pinnock, Richard Rice, John Sanders, William Hasker and Basinger, argues that the God of Christianity desires "responsive relationship" with his creatures. Freewill theism, or the "open view" of God, rejects process theology, but calls for a reassessment of such classical doctrines as God's immutability, impassibility and foreknowledge. In The Case for Freewill Theism Basinger continues the debate by focusing attention especially on divine omniscience, theodicy and petitionary prayer from the freewill perspective. His careful, precise and compelling argument contributes to a growing and important discussion among orthodox Christian philosophers and theologians.

There are deep and pervasive disagreements today in universities and colleges, and popular culture in general, over the credibility and value of belief in God. This has given rise to an urgent need for a balanced, comprehensive, accessible resource book that can inform the public and scholarly debate over theism. While scholars with as diverse interests as Daniel Dennett, Terry Eagleton, Richard Dawkins, Jürgen Habermas, and Rowan Williams have recently contributed books to this debate, "theism" as a concept remains poorly understood and requires a more thorough and systematic analysis than it has so far received in any single volume. The Routledge Companion to Theism addresses this need by investigating theism's history as well as its relationship to inquiry in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities, and to its wider cultural contexts. The contents are not confined within the philosophy of religion or even within the more expansive borders of philosophy. Rather, The Routledge Companion to Theism investigates its subject through the lens of a wide variety of disciplines and explores the ramifications of theism considered as a way of life as well as an intellectual conviction. The five parts of the volume indicate its inclusive scope: I. What is Theism?; II. Theism and Inquiry; III. Theism and the Socio-Political Realm; IV. Theism and Culture; V. Theism as a Way of Life. The result is a well ordered and thorough collection that should provide a wide spectrum of readers with a better understanding of a subject that's much discussed, but frequently misunderstood. As the editors note in their Introduction, while stimulating and informing the contemporary debate, a key aim of the volume is to open new avenues of inquiry into theism and thereby to encourage further research into this vital topic. Comprised of 54 essays by leading scholars in philosophy, history, theology, religious studies, political science, education and sociology, The Routledge Companion to Theism promises to be the most useful, comprehensive resource on an emerging subject of interest for students and scholars.

"The foundation and immediate occasion of this little book was a lecture given before the Concord Summer School of Philosophy, July 30, 1885, in a "symposium" on the question: "Is Pantheism the Legitimate Outcome of Modern Science?" The real origin of the book, however, was two articles published in 1864 in the North American Review--one in the July number on "The Philosophy of Space and Time, " and the other in the October number on "The Conditioned and the Unconditioned." Generally speaking, the theory of Phenomenism versus the theory of Noumenism; the theory of Idealistic Evolution versus the theory of Eealistic Evolution; and the Mechanical theory of Eealistic Evolution versus the Organic theory of Eealistic Evolution, are viewed as the vital philosophical problems of our century, and their solution must determine and decide that of the vital religious problem of Theism, Atheism, and Pantheism. The discussion of these problems constitutes the substance of this book. More specifically, the author believes that these problems have created a philosophical revolution, in that the philosophized scientific method has begun to take the place of the now accepted phenomenistic method in the settlement of all philosophical questions. This book, then, speaks further on the nature and ultimate conclusion of this philosophical revolution"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved).
