About the Book

Over many years of teaching philosophy and religion, author Paul Timothy Jensen has encountered questions on a wide range of philosophical and spiritual topics from college students, professional colleagues, and other adults.

In Thinking about God Again, for the First Time, Jensen explores these questions in the form of imaginary conversations between an atheist and a Christian. Together, Alex and Chris ponder issues of enduring interest and importance: God’s possible existence; God’s possible love for humans; and the concepts of proof, morality, and evil. The conversations examine these and other closely related questions, seeking to state opposing viewpoints fairly and vigorously and engage the minds of readers. Jensen hopes to encourage others to think about God again or for the first time, fostering opportunities for civil conversation.

This study presents a series of questions on topics in the realm of philosophy and religion, considered from the viewpoint of an atheist and a Christian.
