Review of the hardback: 'The Elusive God ... is clearly a profound and illuminating treatment on as big an issue as issues get.' Nicholas Rescher, University of Pittsburgh Review of the hardback: 'I found The Elusive God to be the most profound and interesting work I have read in the past twenty years at the intersection of philosophy and theology. Instead of beginning with a demand for evidence of the existence of a divine being, the author argues that we should expect any intrusion into our lives of the sort that would convince us that God exists to be authoritative evidence that calls us not only to a cognitive viewpoint but also to a surrendering of our wills. The result of such an investigation is a re-conceptualization of the epistemological landscape relevant to the possibility of the knowledge of God.' Jonathan Kvanvig, Baylor University '... offers a powerful and challenging vision.' The Heythrop Journal 'This is an exciting thesis that merits further study and analysis.' Choice '... important and challenging book ... Moser provides the tools for recognising, from the perspective of faith anyway, that total attachment to the anti-fideist evidentialist tendency ('commit yourself only so far as your evidence rationally compels you') is a form of cognitive idolatry.' John Bishop, Religious Studies '... an immense service by pointing us in a new, exciting direction. Indeed, his book is a must-read for every philosopher and theologian!' Paul Copan, Palm Beach Atlantic University
