Whether you’re a devoted believer, a staunch atheist, or a wavering skeptic, you likely have unanswered questions about religion. If you adhere to a certain religion, you may wonder how the tenets of a different faith may intersect or conflict with yours. If you are a nonbeliever or agnostic, you may wonder how others can have such unwavering faith.

Among Kuhn’s interlocutors are philosophers, theologians, and novelists. They include Oxford philosophy professor Richard Swinburne, author of The Existence of God, a celebrated defense of theism; renowned Anglican priest and Cambridge professor emeritus of systematic theology Sarah Coakley; and Templeton Prize recipient Alvin Plantinga, analytic philosopher and professor at the University of Notre
