This is most definately an acedemic work, which I would not recommend to those not previously assosiated with philosophy. That is not to say its content is particulkaly advanced, but the book assumes some previous knowledge and builds upon this assumption in a way that woudl not be conductive to everyone's understanding. However, if some basic background knoweldge is ther this book is a delight to read. Comapred to many of the philosophy texts books available it is clear, consise and illuminating. At times it can rush complex points, but a second reading almost always results in a thourough understanding of the authors point. Highly reccommmended for al those interested in foundatinalism and its various branches, as I felt it was this area in which it excelled.

This is a thorough book. It goes over the topic of the philosophy of religion in a (perhaps too) comprehensive manner, is fairly well written and unbiased in its presentation. For those interested in building a background in the philosophy of religion I would recommend it. It didn't strike me as the best alternative for class texts, because it tended to the general style of summary and review, rather than excerpts of vital anthologies in philosophy of religion. If accompanied by an anthology it would work better. So, in a nutshell they may have tried to squeeze too much general review into too small a space, and made some sacrifice of focus or deeper meaning in the bargain. Overall readers I think will agree it is a good and responsible text but may not go into as much depth in its attempt to be comprehensive.
