    The thesis of the book may be stated simply: it is an argument based upon the four prophetic texts of Jer ; Zech ; ; and Isa as a foundational pattern for the four Gospels. These four prophetic texts, it will be argued, mention a King Branch, a Servant Branch, a Man/Priest Branch, and a Lord God Branch.

So if the theist proposes to take God as the paradigm of goodness, how plausible is that ontology? It seems to me that you argue effectively for its plausibility. First, as you point out in your first and third arguments, apart from God to ground moral values, there just doesn’t seem to be anything else that could plausibly do the job.

    All That Is in God: Evangelical Theology and the Challenge of Classical Christian Theism. By James E. Dolezal. Reformation Heritage Books, pp. God without Parts. Theology, at its heart, is concerned with the knowledge of God. That being the case, when our teaching about God goes astray, so does our teaching about everything else.   In my book The Name: A History of the Dual-Gendered Hebrew Name for God (Wipf & Stock, ) I set out the case that the earliest worshippers of YHWH understood God to be a “male-female” deity. Reading the Hebrew Bible in a non-gendered language such as English, much (though not all) of this gets lost in translation.

A Plausible God is Silver’s effort to discover whether this makes any more sense than the jailer’s happy reverie to Russell. The inquiry is not just an intellectual exercise, for presumably what motivates new God faith, like any faith, is some kind of felt need.

A Plausible God  book is a brilliant exposition of the vast shift in thinking about God that marks so much modern theology - Jewish and Christian. Many theologians continue to speak of God without believing in the God of the Bible. Consider, for instance, God’s revelation of the divine name to Moses from the burning bush in the book of Exodus.

God says I am that I am, at least according to most English translations. Second, if God is the designer, God is not a finite, material, or contingent being by definition.

God, rather, is self-existent (Acts). Third, Dawkins chides theists that if God is the ultimate designer, then God is unexplained. Explanations have to end somewhere, however. The Burning God book. Read reviews from the world's largest community for readers.

The Bible explicitly tells us that God has one, which indicates he had to be distinguished from other celestial beings, just like humans use names to identify different people.

What that name might be is another matter. The Jewish prohibition on speaking God’s name means that its correct pronunciation has been lost. Scientifically plausible mental pictures of God, compatible with both traditional religions and contemporary science, let us allow ourselves to, in the words of William James, “adopt a believing attitude in religious matters, in spite of the fact that our merely logical intellect may not have been coerced.” I think this is a much (perhaps the most) needed thing at this moment.

Their theory may be plausible, but so is ours, and the weight of evidence is such that, at the end of the day, it takes more faith to believe that God does not exist than to believe that he does.

Once we have shown that believing in God is reasonable, we can invite people to step from evidence into experience.

I. Introduction A. The Author. There are three pieces of evidence to consider: title, external evidence, and internal evidence. 1. The Title. As with the other gospels, no MSS which contain John’s Gospel 1 affirm authorship by anyone other than John. 2 Once again, as with the others, this is short of proof of Johannine authorship, but the unbroken stream suggests recognition (or at least.
