Summary

In The Case for Angels, Peter S. Williams employs the resources of contemporary philosophy in defense of a traditional Christian angelology. In discussion with natural skepticism, New Age belief and Christian doubt, Williams highlights the importance of worldview presuppositions in determining attitudes toward angels and enlarges upon the culture war emerging between theism and metaphysical naturalism.
