God: Big Questions, Surprising Answers (Compact Disc)
Do you believe God exists? This bold series invites you to join some of the world's leading thinkers in taking on this profound question. In thirteen riveting episodes, your host, Robert Lawrence Kuhn, tackles this topic in one-on-one interviews with leading figures across fields. Among many other provocative questions, Kuhn asks Does belief in God need to be justified? Does God make sense? and What are the most persuasive arguments for atheism? A gifted moderator, he creates equilibrium through his even-handed questions and eagerness to give everyone a seat at the table. You'll hear from Christian, Jewish, and Muslim philosophers as well as prominent atheists. Topping the chart of Christian philosophers are Alvin Plantinga and Peter van Inwagen, both professors at the University of Notre Dame. From the atheistic camp, you'll meet the founder of The Skeptics Society, Michael Brant Shermer. You'll also hear from thinkers who bridge the science/religion divide, such as Robert John Russell, director of the Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences. Addressing issues ranging from the problem of evil to how the discovery of alien life might affect our belief systems, this series will engage your mind and heart in some of the universe's biggest questions.
