Frederick Turner rebuts arguments against God. A good read, but I think he may overstate Hume's case against the efficacy of empirical evidence (which I have not read but will accept Turner's account of it). Whatever stochasticity in the evidence collected, we can and do make causal inferences from it when the evidence is from designed and controlled experiment. But otherwise, many good points.
