On The Blog

On the blog, interested parties in all walks of life can access my musings on current events, publications on a variety of philosophical subjects, and the odd post about my dogs, Pogue and Alley

A little about me: I am a professional philosopher who is also a Christian. I have written extensively on the concept of miracle and defending the rationality of belief in miracles.

ABOUT ME

My Journey to the Rationality of Theism

Various Works

Robert Larmer has written an outstanding monography on miracles. He writes with philosophical rigor and intellectual vigor. He leaves few stones unturned. This is the best philosophical defense of miracles in a crowded field.

Amazon book review of The Legitimacy of Miracle

This is a masterful work of philosophical maturity. Patient, meticulous, and well-informed, Robert A. Larmer systematically disarms the philosophical, theological and scientific case against miracles. He completes his case by showing that Christian theism is the best explanation of well-attested biblical and contemporary miracle reports. Intellectual honesty will require skeptics to reconsider their position. Highly recommended.

I thoroughly enjoyed this work and learned much from it. This book is carefully organized, closely reasoned, relentlessly logical, and engaged with a broad range of conversation partners. Sophisticated yet accessible to the interested nonspecialist, it moves the discussion forward on a number of key points.

Larmer’s philosophical work manifests two rare qualities. First, crystal clarity: he expresses difficult concepts in a way that almost everyone can understand, avoiding needless, pedantic jargon. Second genuine fairness: he presents alternative viewpoints in their best possible light, never setting up ‘straw men’ to knock down. Both of these admirable qualities are on full display in this present volume.
