Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a collection, it covers important questions on this topic from a philosophical perspective. Robust theological arguments are sometimes lacking, but the book is well worth reading. I always enjoy Plantinga, Stump, and Swinburne, whether I agree with them or not. To me, Wolterstorff here is uninspiring, but others may view it differently.
