On the Nature and Existence of God

Gale’s book is introduced as a critical response to the analytic arguments offered by Plantinga, Swinburne, Alston, and others. He begins by discussing several atheological arguments, which he uses to clarify the nature of God’s attributes instead of refuting God’s existence. He then proceeds to refute different versions of ontological, cosmological, religious-experience, and pragmatic arguments for God’s existence. Technical, yet very witty. Recommended reading for anyone with an academic interest in the philosophy of religion.
