Format: Paperback
This is a good, but rather gentle, guide through the philosophy of religion. Like most such books it is very orientated towards the classic monotheistic religions. It makes a very valiant attempt to be unbiased towards either side of the arguments, but simply to explain the main arguments for and against religion. I was not quite sure who it is aimed at - if you are looking for a wide, moderately deep overview then this will suit you. It assumes almost no philosophical knowledge and introduces a wide range of philosophical ideas to support the arguments. However, to do this, these have to be introduced with such brevity that they miss some important details. If you are looking for a serious introduction to the philosophy of religion this may be too shallow and something like Davies Introduction to the Philosophy of Religion may be a better choice. If you are looking for a good intelligent guide that can be read without too much effort it will be a good choice.

Format: Paperback
Dr Jackson's book is a clear, well-laid out introduction to the philosophy of religion. But it is also more than that. Yes, the book covers all the key areas you'd expect, and makes sure to cover all those topics that students are likely to need to know about, but it also goes beyond most other books that claim to do this. The second edition has a new chapter on atheism, and brings the book up-to-date on related debates - but it also has a strong evaluative thread running through it. The author has no ideological axe to grind, but does draw out problems where he sees them and this is a book that not only will familiarise its readers with key topics - it will lead them into working out where they themselves stand on some thorny and perennial problems in the discipline.
