This collecion of essays covers three broad areas: religious epistemology, theistic arguments, and God's relationship to human life, value, and the world. Three essays evaluate and extend the recent suggestion that beliefs about God do not need discursive evidence to be held rationally. Four essays take up the contemporary interest in arguments for God's existence. Two consider the Kalam cosmological argument, a third the theological argument and its relationship to the Anthropic principle and a fourth develops an epistemological argument for God's existence. The remaining five essays consider the doctrine of God's providence, the meaning of life, the Euthyphro dilemma, the nature of death, and virtue theory. Written in honor of Stuart C. Hackett by his former students at Wheaton College, Westmont College, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, the essays take their focus to be the rationality of the theistic world view. The book includes a biographical sketch by Hackett's long time colleague at Wheaton College, Arthur Holmes.
