4.0 out of 5 stars Probably best out there 11 April 2014
By mai
Out of all the text books for the OCR course this is the most well written. It uses primary sources well and goes into sufficient depth, on the whole, to allow AS students to do very well in the exam.

It is not five stars because there is very little evaluation of the subject matter. It also skims across some areas of the course - the chapter on God as the Good Creator is very light and they could have done a better job with Hume's criticisms by looking closer at his Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion.

When compared with the other text books however this is concise, accurate and best supports the AS course.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good primary textbook 1 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good book that we use with an able group. It is well written and pitched at a level that is appropriate for a good to middling 16 year old. We supplement with handouts and extracts from other books.

By Erica C
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As an OCR RS student I definitely recommend this. Simple language and clear introduction to all topics. Ideal for revision. My teacher uses it as part of his teaching too.
Delivered promptly and well-protected in a box.
