"I must congratulate the editors on the volume. It is very comprehensive – bringing in the different religious traditions of the world and their philosophies, the history of the philosophy of religion, and some of its most modern developments. I think it has got the balance of its articles exactly right, focusing on the modern detailed analytic work, but not neglecting the wider perspective. It is very readable, and the various articles will serve as useful introductions to topics for students; it is a very valuable resource." Professor Swinburne, Oriel College, University of Oxford
<!––end––>"A superb collection! The topics are just right: from the religions of the world and currents in recent philosophy of religion to the theistic conception of God and the justification of theistic belief. The writing is authoritative, but also lively and stimulating. The book will be a valuable reference resource for years to come." Robert L. Arrington, Georgia State University
"Blackwell′s Companions to Philosophy have already established themselves as up–to–date and reliable guides to the central fields within the discipline. This present volume which, offers a remarkably wide–ranging survey of philosophy of religion and philosophical theology in crisp and manageable essays by acknowledged authorities, is no exception." The Tablet
"Philip L. Quinn and Charles Taliaferro are to be commended for putting together an excellent resource in philosophy of religion. This is indeed a ′companion′, for here one finds wise guides to the study of key issues in the philosophy of religion. This is a volume to refer to again and again. Essay after essay provides food for thought and additions to one′s reading list." Paul Reasoner, Bethel Collage
"Another fine addition to the Blackwell Companions of Philosophy series has been published. I consider it a gold mine!" The Review of Metaphysics
In over 78 newly–commissioned essays, this outstanding volume provides a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the philosophy of religion.
Written by many of today′s leading figures, the volume surveys philosophical issues in the religions of the world, philosophical thought about religion in Western history, and important currents in twentieth–century philosophy of religion.
Theism is treated systematically in discussions of religious language, the concept of God, arguments for and against theistic belief, and its relations to other aspects of culture, such as science and values. A final section on new directions in philosophy of religion explores feminism, religious pluralism, and comparative philosophy of religion. This volume will stand for many years to come as the standard reference resource for students and specialists alike.See all Product Description
