What arguments best affirm the existence of God?
Do our moral obligations and choices support a belief in God? For centuries, the moral argument-the affirmation that morality is best explained by the existence of God-has been a powerful apologetic tool.
In this volume, husband and wife duo David Baggett and Marybeth Baggett offer a dramatic, refreshing, and even playful reconsideration of the moral argument. Tracing both its historical importance and its ongoing relevance, they contend that the moral argument helps to explain the existence of a good God and contributes to our own ongoing spiritual transformation.
