The possibility of resurrection and other essays in Christian apologetics

£35.00

Product description

In this collection of classic essays, Peter van Inwagen, a philosopher who converted to Christianity at the age of forty, attempts to answer philosophical objections to Christianity. The writings include reflections on the charge that religious belief is belief that is unsupported by evidence, on arguments that purport to show that the doctrine of resurrection is metaphysically impossible, on the problem of evil, and on Humes famous argument against belief in miracles. Peter van Inwagen is a philosopher who became a Christian at the age of forty. His conversion was not a return to the religion of his childhood, but, on the contrary, consisted of the adoption of beliefs that had been held in explicit contempt by the Unitarian Sunday school teachers of his youth, the philosophers responsible for his professional training, and his colleagues in the philosophy department where he had been teaching for ten years at the time of his conversion. This collection of classic writings represents van Inwagens attempts to answer the philosophical objections to Christianity that he encountered in these intellectually hostile environments.;They include reflections on the charge that religious belief is belief that is unsupported by evidence, on arguments that purport to show that the doctrine of resurrection is metaphysically impossible, on the problem of evil, and on Humes famous argument against belief in miracles.
