This paper challenges the belief that natural theology suffers from a crisis. It highlights the boom of the Anglo-American philosophy of religion (I), the involved boom of theism (II), and the seminal works of Alvin Plantinga (III). Certain prominent features in the resulting natural theology are discussed: the focus on systematic problems; the analytical style; the belief that reality is discovered rather than construed; the interpretation of religious statements as truth claims with objective truth-values; and the belief that sound arguments for answers to certain existential and moral questions can be provided (IV). Finally, issues of natural theology are surveyed: the meaning and consistency of statements about God; their justification from public sources and private religious experience (V). A picture emerges of the genesis, content, and vitality of a great area of contemporary natural theology.
