Given recent work in quantum physics suggesting that our world is just one world in a series of many, Leland Royce Harper calls for a shift in our concept of the monotheistic God of Judeo-Christian tradition. In Multiverse Deism: Shifting Perspectives of God and the World, Harper argues that those who wish to maintain that the Judeo-Christian God exists ought to revise how they define this God and what they expect of Him so as to maintain consistency between modern theism and the growing body of scientific knowledge. While this revision entails several concessions by the theist, the overall result is a stronger and more coherent account of who God really is. By removing the expectation that God will act in the natural world, Harper argues that we are left with a concept of God that maintains all of the traditional divine attributes, is consistent with current scientific advances, remains compatible with contemporary and historical arguments for the existence of God, and better refutes contemporary and historical arguments for atheism than the traditional, active God.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Deism is a fascinating, though neglected, alternative to traditional theism. In Multiverse Deism: Shifting Perspectives of God and the World, Leland Harper revives this view in a novel way by considering the metaphysical implications of cutting-edge research on the multiverse. I highly recommend this book to students and scholars in science, religion, and philosophy."

-- Yujin Nagasawa, University of Birmingham, United Kingdom
"Wouldn't divine goodness create immensely many universes? Harper provides an impressively

wide-ranging discussion of this question and of how it might influence our concept of God." -- John Leslie, Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada
