Book Review: "36 Arguments for the Existence of God"
The book concludes with a very usefully appendix setting out each of the 36 distinct arguments for the existence of god, which also happen to comprise the chapter titles, along with her own concise dismantling of each argument. Her treatment is so succinct, clear and decisive that I can only conclude she never would have succeeded as an academic philosopher.
Bottom line: Rebecca Newberger Goldstein has become one of my favorite living American authors, and not just because I'm an atheist.
