About the Author

C. Stephen Evans is University Professor of Philosophy and Humanities at Baylor University.


...gratitude is certainly due to Evans for providing an unquestionably erudite, substantial, and provocative contribution to an important discussion that bears deep implications for both metaethics and theodicy. * William M. Diem, American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly *
Evans is to be commended for having produced a valuable introduction to the topic of DCTs that also makes a significant contribution to the ongoing debate. ... The book will thus have strong appeal for students, and for many thoughtful people who are not professional philosophers as well as for those who are. * Mikel Burley, The Philosophical Quarterly *
God and Moral Obligation is a success in a number of respects. Evans writes clearly, even brightly, avoiding technical philosophical jargon whenever possible. He is admirably capacious in his readiness to bring together positions often deemed at odds with one another at the same time as he offers a vigorous defense of divine command theory against its challengers. * William Werpehowski, First Things *
Stephen Evans's superbly lucid book God and Moral Obligation provides one of the best overviews of the current debate on this matter that one could hope for. * John Cottingham, The TLS *
Evans has written a highly lucid and readable book * Terence Cuneo, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
This book is a painstaking analysis of the moral and philosophical arguments and counterarguments respecting the place of God in moral theory ... Recommended. * S.E. Forschler, CHOICE *
