Con- temporary classical theists also believe God is simple, timeless .

Con- temporary classical theists also believe God is simple, timeless, and impassible. More recently Owen defines classical theism as belief in one God, the Creator, who is infinite, self-existent, incorporeal, eternal, immutable, impassible, simple, perfect, omniscient and omnipotent.

God and Necessity: A Defense of Classical Theism argues that the God of classical theism exists and could not fail to exist. The book begins with the definition of key terms and analysis of the concepts of God and necessity. Extended examinations of the ontological, cosmological, and teleological arguments are given. The last chapters give an extended exposition and defense of the transcendental argument for God's existence. It is shown that rival accounts of the existence of universe, the Brute Fact and the Necessary Universe theories completely fail, while Necessary Deity, the concept of God existing in all possible worlds, succeeds. Only the latter can account for reality as it is, and can account for knowledge and justification.
  • Stephen Parrish's God and Necessity is the best defense of classical theism I have read--and I've read extensively on the subject. The book is truly a masterpiece, a hidden gem. It is an exceptionally thorough, rigorous, and up-to-date defense of the existence of the Greatest Possible Being, or God. Parrish provides abductive probability proofs of the cosmological and teleological variety that really amount to certainty proofs, as well as the best--as it appears to be sound--version of a transcendental certainty argument for the existence of God I have come across. The book is based upon the author's Ph.D. dissertation, and was written under the supervision of scholars who disagreed with the author's positions. In other words, the thesis was forged in the trenches. Whether you are an open-minded agnostic or a believer in God already and, like Anselm, are seeking certainty for what you believe, this book is for you. Unfortunately, the price for the book is high--something the author could not control. I checked it out--and have re-checked and re-checked it--from a local theological library. But even if that is not an option, if this is a topic you are interested in--and surely we all ought to be supremely interested in this topic--the book is worth the price. Highly recommended!

    p.s. Also highly recommended are Parrish's two other books The Mormon Concept Of God: A Philosophical Analysis and See the Gods Fall: Four Rivals to Christianity.

  • This is one of the most sophisticated defenses for the view that God is a logically necessary Being and that this view is philosophically superior to its two rivals: the Brute Fact Theory and the Necessary Universe Theory. Parrish is an accomplished philosopher with something important to say. ---Francis J.
