|Title:||Review of Paul K. Moser, 'The Evidence for God: Religious Knowledge Reexamined'. New York: Cambridge University Press, 2010. x + 280 pp.||Contributor(s):||Forrest, Peter (author)||Publication Date:||2012||DOI:||10.1215/00318108-1630876||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/12068||Abstract:||In this important work, Paul Moser argues from the experience of moral transformation to the existence of a god worthy of worship. He does so after rejecting fideism and reformed epistemology and after criticizing any natural theology based on premises that are public or scientific knowledge. In the introduction he puts this argument in the context of his parable of Hell's Canyon: hikers lost in inaccessible terrain debating about what. if any help they might get. Moser's point is that the existence of Cod is not a purely intellectual topic. Although Moser's argument is full of interesting detail, its outline is straight forward. The book is a case for the existence of a God worth believing in," as people say, or more precisely, a god worth of worship, which is what Moser means by god. (I Shall use the phrase 'the god' to denote a creator without the implication of moral perfection.)||Publication Type:||Review||Source of Publication:||Philosophical Review, 121(4), p. 622-625||Publisher:||Duke University Press||Place of Publication:||United States of America||ISSN:||0031-8108
