Edited by Michael Bergmann, Michael J. Murray, and Michael C. Rea

  • A panel of high profile authors from divergent disciplinary backgrounds in the fields of philosophy, biblical studies, and theology, representing different positions on the spectrum of religious belief (atheist, theist, Christian, Jewish, Protestant, Catholic).
  • Essays represent both critical and defensive approaches to the question of the moral character of the God of the Hebrew Bible.
  • Each piece is followed by critical commentary by another author who defends an opposing approach to the topic, thereby generating a lively style of original debate.
  • A helpful introduction characterizes the debate and points in directions of future research.
