The Case for Christian Theism
The focus of this part of the book will be on how Craig moves on from generic theism, or actually a generic supernaturalism, to demonstrate the truth of Christian theism. After sowing doubt about the historical sources, I then put forth a Bayesian-inspired argument for the implausibility of miraculous claims being truthful. This allows for a thorough critique of Craig’s climactic Christological argument, which relies on the truth of the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth, whose very historical existence is becoming increasingly questioned. Finally, alternative – particularly Bayesian – Christological arguments shall be analysed, including one supplied by Richard Swinburne.
