Comment: A book which is in good overall condition. This means that it will be largely free of page markings, the spine will still be in solid, tight condition and there will be no pages which are missing from the book. The pages may have slightly turned corners but overall the book should be clean to touch and enjoyable to read.

Studying Philosophy of Religion at AS level could not have been more easy with this easily usable and highly recommended (by all Religion teachers and lecturers i know)A level book. It's side notes break down the text and make revision so much easier when it comes to the final exam. It includes quotes from Philosophers such as David Hume and St Augustine making it a worthwhile and interesting read-even if your'e not studying the subject at A-Level!!! Thumbs up!

As a philosophy teacher I am highly sympathetic to the aims of this book. A Level and degree level should differ in complexity and it seems correct to summarise and simplify. Finding myself short of time in teaching the new AQA AS philosophy of religion syllabus I have used Chapter 8 as the most direct way of getting across the problem of evil. This is not to say that I find it superior to Hodder's Introduction to Philosophy, or its predecessor in the Philosophy in Focus series, but rather that it does a good job of condensing the material. In fact, the text needs teasing out but the above really need longer than time restrictions for the new syllabus allow unless students are highly motivated and academic.
I like this book but its brevity is sometimes slightly comical. DZ Phillips for example is summarised in the single pithy phrase that, 'It would never be justifiable to hurt someone in order to help them.' Given that 'The Problem of Evil & the Problem of God' runs to 280 pages this is worthy of Monty Python's summarising Proust competition. Yet, it provides one solution to the complexity v teachability conundrum and must be applauded for its valour.

I recently completed my Religious Studies A-level in one year, and got an A grade. This book has been an indispensable part of that.

This book is essential for all taking this subject. Philosophy is very confusing and hard to understand and many take RS as what i call a 'bird course', which they think they can fly right through with little work and get high grades. THIS HOWEVER IS NOT SO!!!

If you are interested in this subject and chose it for the right reasons then you will find this book extremely helpful. However if you are not willing to use your brain they the wording may seem confusing.

I bought 3 A level books, and this is by far the best. It contains notes no the side full of simplified explanations and quotes which are vital for your exam essays. The book covers a wide range of topics and if you are in Wales and are studying WJEC board there are no books for that board, but this one works great, showing how detailed it is.

If you find this book too complex or unhelpful then i sugest you drop your course because it is not the right subject for you.

I bought this guide to aid teaching Advanced Higher RMPS in Scotland. Only two of the sections are relevant but they are good and to the point. There isn't a great deal of depth about each individual section but it is a very good guide nonetheless.

This is not a bad textbook (it is certainly used by a lot of Schools) but it is important to realise that although it says 'OCR Edition' it is not approved by OCR. It does contain some errors - particularly in relation to Religious Language. I would recommend using the textbook that has been specifically written for the OCR course (this has the approved for OCR logo on the front cover) and is edited by the chief examiner for RS (Jon Mayled).
