God, Goodness and Philosophy
Harriet A. Harris
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2011 - Religion - 257 pages
Does belief in God yield the best understanding of value? Can we provide transcendental support for key moral concepts? Does evolutionary theory undermine or support religious moralities? Is divine forgiveness unjust? Can a wholly good God understand evil? This book explores these questions and much more.
