Part of the Palgrave Frontiers in Philosophy of Religion book series (PFPR)

Abstract

The introduction offers a brief presentation of John L. Schellenberg’s hiddenness argument which is the central focus of the book. Weidner notes how the hiddenness argument resembles the argument from evil, both of which conclude that there is no God. The book’s research question states: Why, if there is a God, is God’s existence not evident to everyone? Weidner approaches the book from a theistic viewpoint using an analytic style of philosophy. The book includes an account of the notion of God’s hiddenness, an exposition of the hiddenness argument, and a reply to the argument which rejects one of the argument’s premises arguing that beliefless faith in the form of the assumption that God exists allows for personal relationship with God.
