'I found The Elusive God to be the most profound and interesting work I have read in the past twenty years at the intersection of philosophy and theology. Instead of beginning with a demand for evidence of the existence of a divine being, the author argues that we should expect any intrusion into our lives of the sort that would convince us that God exists to be authoritative evidence that calls us not only to a cognitive viewpoint but also to a surrendering of our wills. The result of such an investigation is a re-conceptualization of the epistemological landscape relevant to the possibility of the knowledge of God.' --Jonathan Kvanvig, Baylor University
"*The Elusive God* ... is clearly a profound and illuminating treatment on as big an issue as issues get." --Nicholas Rescher, University of Pittsburgh
"This is an exciting thesis that merits further study and analysis." --Choice
"...important and challenging book." --John Bishop, of The University oF Auckland
"...remarkable, noteworthy volume. ...Truly, Moser has done philosophy--and natural theology in particular--an immense service by pointing us in a new, exciting direction. Indeed, his book is a must-read for every philosopher and theologian!" --Review Metaphysics
"... a substantial and challenging book on religious epistemology ... [It is] courageous, and may take some philosophers of religion by surprise ... The book pushes the boundaries, with implications for both philosophy and theology."
This book argues that we should expect evidence of divine reality to be purposively available to humans. This lesson generates a seismic shift in our understanding of evidence and knowledge of divine reality. The result is a reorienting of religious epistemology to accommodate the character and purposes of a loving God.
