The Virtue of Faith and Other Essays in Philosophical Theology

Robert Merrihew Adams

This collection brings together for the first time most of the work that Robert Merrihew Adams has contributed to the philosophy of religion. The sixteen essays, two never before published, include influential studies on several aspects of the relation between religion and ethics, including a comprehensive discussion of moral arguments for theistic belief, as well as treatments of the existence of God and the problem of evil in light of contemporary ideas about the metaphysics of individuality and modality. Adams defends belief in God from an epistemological standpoint that he characterizes as "skeptical realism."
