This book is absolutely refreshing! Rather than the antagonistic back and forth arguments between the new atheists and believers, this book presents a generous, fuller treatment of atheism and theism through an investigation of the role of imagination and the aesthetic qualities of scientific inquiry and philosophical argument.

I learned about the history of thinking about the imagination and its vital role in forming our world views. What makes this work unique is the fact that it was co-authored by a philosopher and an artist.

This is a book not just for experts, but for intelligent, curious, and tolerant readers. Unlike some other books, here there are no rants or lectures -- only readable, non-dogmatic writing that leaves you wanting more!

My only reservation was the price - though for me it was worth it!

A fantastic and much needed contribution to the theism and naturalism debate! The authors explore the role of conceivability and imagination in philosophy and science among other disciplines. As a philosopher and an artist, Evans and Taliaferro creatively show that the imaginative capacity is more at home in Theism rather than naturalism. Thoughtful and engaging, this is well worth a read by philosophers, scientists, and artists.
