In this book two philosophers, each committed to unambiguous versions of belief and disbelief, debate the central issues of atheism and theism.

  • Considers one of the oldest and most widely disputed philosophical questions: is there a God?
  • Presents the atheism/theism issue in the form of philosophical debate between two highly regarded scholars, widely praised for the clarity and verve of their work.
  • This second edition contains new essays by each philosopher, responding to criticisms and building on their previous work.
