    Postmodern Apologetics?: Arguments for God in Contemporary Philosophy provides an introduction to the emerging field of continental philosophy of religion by treating the movements ideas about God through its most influential proponents. Part I provides context by examining religious aspects of the thought of the following thinkersMartin HeideggerEmmanuel LevinasJacques Derrida Christina Pages: "Skepticism about the possibility of proving the existence of God often relies on data from modern science. In this splendid new book Father Robert Spitzer explores the implications of the latest discoveries in big bang cosmology, string theory, quantum physics, and the ontology of time to craft a series of convincing philosophical arguments.5/5(1).

    Summary. Now Boethius has decided that Philosophy's arguments must be true, but he still questions, "What are we to make of chance?" Chance, or random occurrence without any sequence of causes, cannot exist in the mind of God as Philosophy has described it. "If God imposes order on things," Boethius says to Philosophy, "then there is no opportunity for random events.". God is the living God, because his life is an absolutely independent and self-sufficient life. And so all his acts and forth-puttings of power, whether in creation or in providence or in redemption, are free acts, dictated not by necessity but by pure disinterested love. Any other conception than this denies in effect that he is the living God.

    “I have found God to be the most balanced, readable, and enjoyable synthesis of philosophy of religion materials available today. My students insist it is the book they will not re-sell at the close of the semester.” —Dr. Virginia Osborn, Belmont University. Contents: Preface for Instructors: The Idea Behind the Book. Introduction for. Book Description We all want to be happy and we struggle to remain in a state of peace, joy, and bliss. Some of us are busy trying to achieve something that will make us happy, while others are blissful, just content with what they have. Most of us, who believe in God, go to our God for happiness.
