Alvin Plantinga is profiled in today's New York Times. Here is the link: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/12/14/books/alvin-plantingas-new-book-on-god-and-science.html?_r=1&ref=arts. He's got a new book from Oxford Press: Where the Conflict Really Lies: Science, Religion and Naturalism (see http://www.oup.com/us/catalog/general/subject/Philosophy/Religion/?view=usa&ci=9780199812097).

He doesn't much like Dawkins or Dennett:

In “Where the Conflict Really Lies: Science, Religion and Naturalism,” published last week by Oxford University Press, he unleashes a blitz of densely reasoned argument against “the touchdown twins of current academic atheism,” the zoologist Richard Dawkins and the philosopher Daniel C. Dennett, spiced up with some trash talk of his own.

Mr. Dawkins? “Dancing on the lunatic fringe,” Mr. Plantinga declares. Mr. Dennett? A reverse fundamentalist who proceeds by “inane ridicule and burlesque” rather than by careful philosophical argument.

His knock-down, drag-out debate with Dennett is described at http://www.brianauten.com/Apologetics/PlantingaOpeningStatement.pdf (I heard it was boring.)
