A New Argument for the Existence of God

I read today this quote: "Human philosophy, the wisdom of the world, has never converted a soul" (Fish, Power in the Pulpit, p. 3) and then I saw this...: A New Argument for the Existence of God – Justin Taylor:
In this paper we offer a new argument for the existence of God. We contend that the laws of logic are metaphysically dependent on the existence of God, understood as a necessarily existent, personal, spiritual being; thus anyone who grants that there are laws of logic should also accept that there is a God. We argue that if our most natural intuitions about them are correct, and if they’re to play the role in our intellectual activities that we take them to play, then the laws of logic are best construed as necessarily existent thoughts — more specifically, as divine thoughts about divine thoughts. We conclude by highlighting some implications for both theistic arguments and antitheistic arguments.
