Summary In A Philosophical, Scientific and Theological Defense for the Notion That a God Exists, Hal Flemings presents an overview of the history of the debate on the question of the existence of God. In an objective fashion, Flemings provides equal voice to opposing views while not hiding his own. He treats the problem of evil from a new perspective, which includes moral evil and natural evil (earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, forest fires, etc.) and discusses the relationship between God and the theoretical and factual sciences.
