Paul Moser’s book defends what has been an unfashionable view in recent epistemology: the foundationalist account of knowledge and justification.

In challenging prominent sceptical claims that we have no justified beliefs abou

Three questions motivate this book’s account of evidence for the existence of God. First, if God’s existence is hidden, why suppose He exists at all? Second, if God exists, why is He hidden, particularly if God seeks to communicate with people? Third, what are the implications of divine hiddenness for philosophy, theology, and religion’s supposed knowledge of God? This book answers these questions on the basis of a new account of evidence and knowledge of divine reality that challenges skepticism about God’s existence. The central thesis is that we should expect eviden
