Format: Paperback
Debate of the existance of God, the purpose of life, science, philosophy and mysticism are all covered in this testament to athiest ideals. Comparable to to book 'Critiques of God'. Very controversial, post modern ideas are presented without, in my opinion, proper investigation. However, you wouldn't read this book to enhance your thinking, or to find backup for the God/Science debate. More of a 'think about life' book.

Format: Paperback
Meant as a textbook, this book provides an entry-level discourse on the problems of the concept of god. Concentrating on the classical arguments of Aquinas and Anselm, Mr. Angeles points out weaknesses and logical holes in their works. The problem with this book is that it refutes the classical arguments for theism without engaging in more recent, and more sophisticated, apologetics. It is good as a primer, but better move on to Michael Martin and Theodore Drange to see how far Philosophy of Religion has advanced.
