Description

The distinguished American philosopher Alvin Plantinga has had a career-long interest in the defense of Christian belief. There hasn't been a major contemporary challenge to such belief that Plantinga has not, in some way, addressed. This book draws together those contributions, highlighting particularly Plantinga's groundbreaking work in the areas of epistemology and the problem of evil. Historical and biographical background information is included to give perspective to Plantinga's work. His theory that both theistic and Christian belief is warranted and basic is explored and critiqued, and an assessment is offered as to the significance of Plantinga's work for apologetic theory and practice. ""This is an important work on one of the most important philosophers of our time. Keith Mascord has not merely written an excellent account of Alvin Plantinga's philosophy but also shown us how Plantinga has contributed to a much broader field of inquiry than academic philosophy. In addition, in the last three chapters Mascord provides his own critical and original response to Plantinga."" --Peter Forrest, University of New England, Armidale, Australia ""Alvin Plantinga is a superb philosopher, and one of the greatest living defenders of the rationality of Christian theism. Keith Mascord explains and assesses Plantinga's ideas in a way that is clear, penetrating, and rigorous. If you are interested in how philosophy can contribute to Christian apologetics then you are likely to find this book worth reading."" --Bruce Langtry, University of Melbourne ""Keith Mascord's book is a genuine achievement; wide-ranging, massively thorough, judicious, and critically penetrating."" --Alvin Plantinga, University of Notre Dame ""A thorough and insightful analysis and critique."" --Graham Cole Keith Mascord is a Canadian born Australian. He has taught at Moore Theological College in Sydney and has most recently been named National Chaplain of Mission Australia.
