Trent Dougherty and Alvin Plantinga: An Interview on Faith and Reason

Two Dozen (or so) Arguments for God

Jerry L. Walls

Trent Dougherty

Oxford University Press

Alvin Plantinga shares his current thoughts on natural theology, including which arguments he thinks hold the most promise in this interview with Trent Dougherty at the “Two Dozen (or so) Theistic Arguments” Conference hosted by both the Baylor Institute for Studies of Religion and the Program for Philosophical Study of Religion at Baylor University. Plantinga cites the moral arguments as among the most compelling. He also addresses the reasons for various arguments’ strengths. Some are useful for helping people who don’t believe in God to come to believe in God. He also finds that some arguments are useful when it comes to shoring up one’s own belief. The interview also probes Plantinga’s personal experiences with employing these arguments with people, including atheists.
