Philosophy of Religion Reviews


"More advanced students will find this a valuable collection." Jeff Astley, Theology "This book will help fill the need of those who want a collection of brief and generally interesting samples taken from what the editors find important in recent literature." David A. Pailin, The Expository Times "Representative in content, broad in scope, coherent in structure, rich in information, this superbly crafted anthology is a very useful and highly interesting presentation of the philosophy of religion. It may well become the standard anthology in this field." Keith Yandell, University of Wisconsin-Madison "Based on a variety of topics addressed and approaches taken by the essays' authors, as well as the quality of the selections, there is not a better collection for an upper-division philosophy of religion course to be found." Jon Kvanvig, Texas A & M University
