Beginning the week of June 22nd we will start up our summer reading group for Paul Moser’s recently published book, The Elusive God. Each week a different contributor will take responsibility for kicking off each section with a post. We’ve broken the book up into eight sections by dividing the first three chapters in half. This should help keep the readings for each week easily manageable.
Our own Jonathan Kvanvig had this to say about the book:
“I found The Elusive God to be the most profound and interesting work I have read in the past twenty years at the intersection of philosophy and theology. Instead of beginning with a demand for evidence of the existence of a divine being, the author argues that we should expect any intrusion into our lives of the sort that would convince us that God exists to be authoritative evidence that calls us not only to a cognitive viewpoint but also to a surrendering of our wills. The result of such an investigation is a re-conceptualization of the epistemological landscape relevant to the possibility of the knowledge of God.”
This promises to be an interesting, and perhaps provocative, read. If you want to participate in the reading group, head over to your university library or go on-line to grab a copy of the book.
