"In Defense of Natural Theology"
After the Introduction, written by Sennett and Groothuis, the book is divided into two parts.
Part One Hume on Natural Theology
2. “Hume’s Criticisms of Natural Theology” by Terrence Penelhum.
3. “In Praise of Hume” by Todd Furman. This is the lone chapter that defends Hume.

5. “Hume’s Stopper and the Natural Theology Project” by James Sennett.
Part Two: Hume and the Arguments:
6. “Metaphysical Implications of Cosmological Arguments: Exorcising the Ghost of Hume,” by Douglas Groothuis.
7. “Hume and the Kalam Cosmological Argument,” by Garrett DeWeese and Joshua Rasmussen.
8. “Giving the Devil His Due,” by James Madden.
9. “Hume, Fine-Tuning, and the ‘Who Designed God’ Objection,” by Robin Collins.
10. “Hume and the Moral Argument,” by Paul Copan.
11. “David Hume, Experiential Evidence and Belief in God” by Keith Yandell.
12. “The Argument from Reason and Hume’s Legacy,” by Victor Reppert.
13. “Hume and the Argument from Consciousness,” by J.P. Moreland.
13. “David Hume and a Cumulative Case Argument,” by R. Douglas Geivett.
James and I hope that this volume will significantly advance the cause of natural theology in the world of ideas. It is suitable for classes in philosophy of religion, theology, and apologetics--or for light bedtime reading.
