The Metaphysical Argument and Religion

  • John J. Shepherd
Part of the Library of Philosophy and Religion book series


The term ‘God of religion’ is chosen for its imprecision and is intended to cover, let us say, the God of the Jews, that of Christians, that of Moslems, and perhaps that of Ramanuja’s Hindu theism. For my first concern is to explore the possible connection between a metaphysical CEB and the theistic religions rather than a particular theistic religion. In the light of the discussion of Chapter 1 the possibility needs to be considered of connecting a metaphysical CEB with religious experience as found in a theistic context.
