I would like this resource -http://www.amazon.com/New-Proofs-Existence-God-Contributions/dp/0802863833/ref=pd_ys_ir_all_154

However, it is bundled here in Logos -https://www.logos.com/product/37039/eerdmans-catholic-studies-collection

and I do not want the other resources.

Kent:

If you can prove the existence of God, it isn't the God of the bible.

The existence of God does not have to be proved. Only the non-existence of God has to be shown as the most improbable argument.

But you also cannot prove that it is false that there is no God.  If you could prove God, he would be a part of the universe since you can only proceed from the given.  I can perhaps show that the view that there is no God is rather pessimistic, but I cannot prove it false.  The view that there is no God ends in despair.

I agree with you fully George but I think its necessary at times to have a well reasoned argument for the existence of God.

Well the book sure has some very good reviews. I may have to look into purchasing the Kindle version.

Thanks Kent.
