Thomas Nagel, A Philosopher Defends Religion

"Analytical philosopher Alvin Plantinga thinks we can reasonably believe that we are the products of evolution provided that we also believe, contrary to naturalism, that the process was in some way guided by God. The book is presented from the inside of the point of view of a philosophically subtle and scientifically informed theist. Plantinga writes clearly and accessibly in response to aggressive critics of religion. His comprehensive stand is a valuable contribution to this debate."
