This book is very interesting, and details several arguments for God's existance, including the moral, cosmological and teleological arguments. These are explained with wit and intelligence, as he incisively explores these important issues. I would reccommend it to anyone.

A very useful and exciting analysis of current philosophical thinking about the existence of God. Very useful for the thinking Christian or the intelligent enquiring mind. A friend of mine bought two copies, one to keep and one to give away!

What a disappointment. I was looking for a cogent argument that could present in an intelligent way some kind of evidence for the existence of God. The reviews on this site were encouraging so I bought the book. Alas, Williams does not so much present a case for God than tries to justify his own belief in a very specific deity, the Christian kind.
Needless to say, I was not convinced and I will take two specific examples, to be found in the first fifty pages, to show why I think Williams's argument is biased.

First of all Williams takes a plunge in the heart of a very potent issue, that of Evil. The problem of Evil is well known and highlights the contradiction between the existence of Evil on the one hand and the existence of an omni benevolent, omnipotent and omniscient God. Williams quotes LePoidevin on page 43: "either there is no such deity, or, if there is, he is not all-knowing, all-powerful and perfectly good, though he may be one or two of these". Note how LePoidevin concedes that God may exist but cannot exhibit all three characters together. So what does Williams do over the next 20 pages? He subtly turns the "problem" of Evil into an "argument" from Evil and postulate that this "argument" was designed to disprove the existence of God! This was never the case! The problem of Evil simply points towards inconsistencies in certain theistic beliefs. Williams somehow acknowledges this on page 44 but his concession is largely undermined by a ridiculous piece of logic, on the previous page, that I must reproduce here to show the reader what he can expect:

I quote from page 43:
"Premise 1) If God existed there would be no Wrong (because God would be aware of Wrong, he would desire to prevent Wrong, and he would be able to prevent Wrong).
