God? : a debate between a Christian and an atheist by William Lane Craig( )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 2,230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In God?, William Lane Craig and Walter Sinnott-Armstrong bring to the printed page two debates they held before live audiences, preserving all the wit, clarity, and immediacy of their public exchanges. With none of the opaque discourse of academic logicians and divinity-school theologians, the authors make claims and comebacks that cut with precision. Their arguments are sharp and humorous, as each philosopher strikes quickly to the heart of his opponent's case. For example, Craig claims that we must believe in God to explain objective moral values, such as why rape is wrong. Sinnott-Armstrong responds that what makes rape wrong is the harm to victims of rape, so rape is immoral even if there is no God."--Jacket
Naturalism : a critical analysis by William Lane Craig( )

29 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and German and held by 1,983 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Naturalism: A Critical Analysis accomplishes three things. First, it argues that naturalism fails to deal adequately with a number of desiderata; second, it shows that to the degree that naturalism is a consistent paradigm and is 'located' within the physicalist story, it should be a form of strict physicalism; and third, it provides an account of the contemporary resurgence of philosophical theism by advertising to evidentiary considerations in the natural world itself (e.g. Big Bang cosmology) which serve as signposts of transcendence."--Jacket
Theism, atheism, and big bang cosmology by William Lane Craig( Book )

28 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and held by 966 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary science presents us with the remarkable theory that the universe began to exist about fifteen billion years ago with a cataclysmic explosion called "the Big Bang." The question of whether Big Bang cosmology supports theism or atheism has long been a matter of discussion among the general public and in popular science books, but has received scant attention from philosophers. This book sets out to fill this gap by means of a sustained debate between two philosophers, William Lane Craig and Quentin Smith, who defend opposing positions. Craig argues that the Big Bang that began the universe was created by God, while Smith argues that the Big Bang has no cause. Alternating chapters by the two philosophers criticize and attempt to refute preceding arguments. Their arguments are based on Einstein's theory of relativity and include a discussion of the new quantum cosmology recently developed by Stephen Hawking and popularized in A Brief History of Time

The kalām cosmological argument by William Lane Craig( Book )

24 editions published between 1978 and 2018 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Did the universe begin to exist? If so, did it have a cause? Or could it have come into existence uncaused, from nothing? These questions are taken up by the medieval-though recently-revived-kalam cosmological argument, which has arguably been the most discussed philosophical argument for God's existence in recent decades. The kalam's line of reasoning maintains that the series of past events cannot be infinite but rather is finite. Since the universe could not have come into being uncaused, there must be a transcendent cause of the universe's beginning, a conclusion supportive of theism. This anthology on the philosophical arguments for the finitude of the past asks: Is an infinite series of past events metaphysically possible? Should actual infinites be restricted to theoretical mathematics, or can an actual infinite exist in the concrete world? These essays by kalam proponents and detractors engage in lively debate about the nature of infinity and its conundrums; about frequently-used kalam argument paradoxes of Tristram Shandy, the Grim Reaper, and Hilbert's Hotel; and about the infinity of the future

Reasonable faith : Christian truth and apologetics by William Lane Craig( Book )

13 editions published between 1984 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Craig's approach of positive apologetics gives careful attention to crucial questions and concerns, including: the relationship of faith and reason, the existence of God, the problems of historical knowledge and miracles, the personal claims of Christ, and the historicity of the resurrection of Jesus.

God is great, God is good : why believing in God is reasonable and responsible by William Lane Craig( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and French and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The days have passed when the goodness of God -- indeed, the reality of God itself -- could reasonably be called a consensus opinion. God's reputation has come under considerable review in recent days, with some going so far as to say that it's not we who've made a mess of things. Instead whatever it is we call God is to blame. But is such an opinion really a fair assessment? In this magisterial collection, the contemporary complaints against belief in God are addressed with intellectual passion and rigor by some of the most astute theological and philosophical minds of the day. - Publisher

Five views on apologetics by Steven B Cowan( Book )

5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The goal of apologetics is to persuasively answer honest objections that keep people from faith in Jesus Christ. But of several apologetic approaches, which is most effective? Five Views on Apologetics examines the "how-to" of apologetics, putting five prominent views under the microscope: Classical, Evidential, Presuppositional, Reformed Epistemology, and Cumulative Case. Offering a forum for presentation, critique, and defense, this book allows the contributors for the different viewpoints to interact. Like no other book, Five Views on Apologetics lets you compare and contrast different ways of "doing" apologetics. Your own informed conclusions can then guide you as you meet the questions of a needy world with the claims of the gospel. The Counterpoints series provides a forum for comparison and critique of different views on issues important to Christians. Counterpoints books address two categories: Church Life and Exploring Theology. Complete your library with other books in the Counterpoints series

Jesus' resurrection : fact or figment? : a debate between William Lane Craig & Gerd Lüdemann( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jesus' Resurrection : Fact or Figment? is a debate between Christian philosopher and apologist William Lane Craig and New Testament scholar and atheist Gerd Lüdemann. This published version of a debate originally set at Boston College invites the responses of two additional scholars on either side of the issue. Robert Gundry, a New Testament scholar, and Stephen Davis, a philosopher, argue in support of a historical and actual resurrection, while Michael Goulder and Roy Hoover, both New Testament scholars, offer their support for Gerd Lüdemann's view that the "resurrection" was based on the guilt-induced visionary experience of the disciples. The book concludes with a final response from Gerd Lüdemann and from William Lane Craig
To everyone an answer : a case for the Christian worldview : essays in honor of Norman L. Geisler by Francis Beckwith( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a society fascinated by spirituality but committed to religious pluralism, the Christian worldview faces sophisticated and aggressive opposition. A prior commitment to diversity, with its requisite openness and relativistic outlook, has meant for skeptics, critics and even many Christians that whatever Christianity is, it cannot be exclusively true or salvific. What is needed in this syncretistic era is an authoritative, comprehensive Christian response. Point by point, argument by argument, the Christian faith must be effectively presented and defended. To Everyone an Answer: A Case for the Christian Worldview offers such a response. Editors Francis J. Beckwith, William Lane Craig and J.P. Moreland have gathered together in this book essays covering all major aspects of apologetics, including faith and reason, arguments for God's existence, a case for Jesus, the problem of evil, postmodernism, religious pluralism, and Christian exclusivism
