Back on 12 October, I promised a full review of John Shook's The God Debates "in a couple of days". Ulp. A couple of days passed ... and then another couple of weeks. I super-promise that I'll get to it soon.
Meanwhile, Ophelia Benson is also reading it, and she's also positive about what she's reading.
Once again this is a very nice, readable and accessible book that, as I wrote last time, is more about philosoph of religion than theology except near the end. "... and it does provide a nice, readable, potted introduction to the field, including some good discussion of the more avant-garde and slippery arguments that might get trotted out against you in an actual debate with a well-prepared believer who has been reading Plantinga and the like."
So, I'll get back to it in, um, the next couple of days, just treating it on its merits and forgetting about the Huffington Post kerfuffle, which is now old and stale news.
