In Weidner’s view, Schellenberg’s hiddenness argument is not a proof, i.e., a sound deductive argument, for the non-existence of God. For at least one premise has plausibly been shown to be left unsupported, namely that belief that God exists is necessary for personal relationship with God. However, the book’s research question of why, if there is a God, God’s existence is not evident to everyone, does not here find an answer. The purpose of Weidner’s detailed exposition of the hiddenness argument and particular discussion of one of its premises is to invite as broad a range of scholars as possible to seriously reflect on Schellenberg’s anti-theistic hiddenness reasoning and join the hiddenness debate.
