Anyone working in the analytical tradition of philosophy of religion, at any level, would find something of interest in the book: both as teaching material (I know from experience how much students enjoy some of the experiments), and as a contribution in its own right. (Philosophy)
a lively and engaging introduction to the philosophy of religion...makes some significant contributions to contemporary debates in the subject, and which will provide a great deal of discussion among those working in this field ... his style is contagiously enthusiastic ... Mawson has presented a provocative and stimulating argument concerning the nature and existence of God (Brian Clack, Ars Disputandi)
The conversational and relaxed style, as of a good undergraduate supervision, full of lively illustrations in the form of little parables, appeals. But the discussion moves to a higher level than the commendation suggests, and T.J. Mawson voices interesting and provocative thoughts. (Times Literary Supplement)

thinking and challenge the ways in which philosophy of religion has been traditionally
The lightness of touch, innovative arguments, and the recognition that it is
just as important that the reading of a book should be as good an experience
for the reader, as the writing of the book for the author is refreshing.
More power to Mr Mawson''s elbow
No, because, in the previous sentence, it says that ALL of them agree! I would also be surprised if most could rattle off the nine properties on their way to the supermarket, let alone in a discussion group, though, in Oxford, I might well be surprised!
This list of properties is written within a paragraph, and not tabulated, so it is difficult to work out which are essential and which are accidental properties. Even though they are dealt with later, it would have been better to introduce them properly.
Given only the slightest knowledge of these three religions it is NOT surprising that each of their gods has the properties mentioned. It would be surprising if they were different!
Also, in the preceding paragraph, it says that while he has divided it into these nine properties "some might sensibly divide it into a different number or indeed not divide it at all." Well, so they can, and probably put in a different order, but I would rather focus on the view in hand.
I did well to get to page 11.
