This book draws together the contributions of the philosopher Alvin Plantinga to address the major contemporary challenges to Christian belief, highlighting in particular his ground-breaking work in epistemology and the problem of evil.
Plantinga’s theory that both theistic and Christian belief is warrantedly basic is explored and critiqued, and an assessment offered as to the significance of his 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.
