Eighteen Takes On God
A Short Guide For Those Who Are Still Perplexed
Sobre o livro
Who is God? How should we think about the concept of God? How have religions defined and altered conceptions of God over the ages? Are modern conceptions of God so different from our ancestors'? Philosopher Leslie Stevenson here offers eighteen short and lively takes on God to help orient readers to this vast and confusing subject. Surveying everything from the idea of God as an "old man in the sky" to the more abstract idea of a metaphysical God, among other ways ofimaging the divine, Stevenson presents a clear and helpful guide for curious readers. Stevenson expresses no overall pre-commitment to theism, atheism or agnosticism; rather he offers a sympathetic account of a variety of views, combined with critical questioning about their meaning and practicalapplication.
