Edward Feser, Five Proofs of the Existence of God (Ignatius Press, 2017).
A Christian philosopher offers five philosophical arguments for an uncaused First Cause of the universe from the existence of change and the contingency or dependence of all finite beings, which implies the existence of an uncaused Creator as their source. These arguments require no specialized knowledge of natural science and are presented in both formal premises and informal explanations. Also shows that God implied by these proofs is the God of classical theism affirmed by Christian tradition and offers extensive rebuttals to objections.
