Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Divine Hiddenness may sound like a clumsy philosopher's way of talking, but it is at the heart of much thought. Whether in a university, a church, a bar, or in solitude, nearly everyone has at some time asked: Why does God hide from us? If God exists, why is He not manifest and obvious? Editors Daniel Howard-Snyder and Paul K. Moser have assembled many of the leading voices in the philosophy of religion to offer their views on the subject. There are both philosophers and theologians, skeptics and believers. The result is a scholarly, if occasionally academic, treatment of a thorny problem that has afflicted thinkers for thousands of years. The book ranges from analytic philosophy to theology to some interesting historical treatments of St. John of the Cross, Jonathan Edwards, and Kierkegaard. The volume contains 11 essays, including works by Nicholas Wolterstorff, Peter van Inwagen, and William J. Wainwright. Moser has also compiled an excellent bibliography on the subject, which is especially useful for students of philosophy. --Eric de Place


"...[an] excellent anthology...incisive and thought-provoking...I happily commend this book to anyone who is interested in the philosophy of religion or in the religious issue of God's hiddenness." Philosophia Christi

"...a set of essays rich in insight...Taken together, these essays offer a surprisingly comprehensive treatment of the question of divine hiddenness, exposing something of the variety and complexity in the subject and making it accessible to reflection." Theology Today

"This volume offers a representative selection of views on divine hiddenness. It contains valuable discussion of both classical and contemporary treatments of the problem, and would be suitable reading for a mid- or upper-level course on this topic." Philosophy in Review

"This is an interesting, sophisticated collection of philosophical essays on the hiddenness of God, in the specific sense that God (if such there be) has not made his existence sufficiently clear." - James Bradley, Memorial University of Newfoundland
