Summary
As tensions simmer, and often explode, between the secular and the religious forces in modern life, the big questions about human belief press ever more urgently. Where does belief, or its lack, originate? How can we understand and appreciate religious traditions different from our own? Featuring conversations with twelve skeptics, atheists, agnostics, and believers including Alvin Plantinga, Philip Kitcher, Michael Ruse, and John Caputo Talking God offers new perspectives on religion, including the challenge to believers from evolution, cutting-edge physics and cosmology; arguments both for and against atheism; and meditations on the value of secular humanism and faith in the modern world. Experts offer insights on Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism, as well as Judaism and Christianity. Topical and illuminating, Talking God gives readers a deeper understanding of faith today and how philosophers understand it
Summary
Conversations with 12 skeptics, atheists, agnostics and believers from Alvin Plantinga and Philip Kitcher to Michael Ruse and John Caputo explore current debates about the origins of faith and atheism while tracing the role of secular humanism and faith in the modern world
