Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Incorporating ten new readings and expanded pedagogical features, the fourth edition of Philosophy of Religion: Selected Readings is the most complete--and economically priced--introductory anthology in the philosophy of religion. It presents seventy-eight selections (more than any other collection) organized into fourteen thematic sections, providing instructors with great flexibility in organizing their courses. Addressing both classical concepts and a host of contemporary issues, the readings cover all of the standard subjects--including religious experience, divine attributes, theistic arguments, the problem of evil, and miracles--as well as more recent topics like reformed epistemology, process theism, the kalam cosmological argument, the religion-science controversy, religious ethics, and the diversity of world religions. While it deals primarily with the Western and analytic traditions in philosophy, the book also incorporates readings representing continental, feminist, and Asian perspectives.

The fourth edition offers enhanced pedagogy including substantially expanded section introductions, numerous new glossary terms, and updated suggestions for further reading. It also provides ten new selections, including pieces by Daniel Dennett, Stephen T. Davis, and Gottfried Leibniz, and work on various issues in religion and science by William Dembski, Philip Kitcher, John Lennox, and John Polkinghorne. As in the previous edition, study questions appear at the end of each selection.

An excellent stand-alone text for courses in the philosophy of religion, Philosophy of Religion: Selected Readings, Fourth Edition, is also a perfect companion to the editors' textbook, Reason and Religious Belief, Fifth Edition (OUP, 2012), as the two books share the same topical organization.

Synopsis:

The new edition of this perennially popular anthology in the philosophy of religion examines both basic classical concepts and a host of contemporary issues. Organized into fourteen thematic sections, Philosophy of Religion presents seventy-three selections that cover standard subjects--religious experience, theistic arguments, the problem of evil, and miracles--as well as more recent topics including reformed epistemology, process theism, the kalam theological argument, the religion-science controversy, religious ethics, and the diversity of world religions. The third edition adds two new sections--on the ontological status of religion and open theism--along with helpful study questions and a glossary. It also features revised and expanded section introductions and updated suggestions for further reading.

While it deals primarily with the Western and analytic traditions in philosophy, Philosophy of Religion, Third Edition, also incorporates readings representing continental, feminist, and Asian perspectives. New selections include essays by Marilyn McCord Adams, Robert Merrihew Adams, David Basinger, Emile Durkheim, C. Stephen Evans, J. R. Lucas, Bruce Reichenbach, and Jean-Paul Sartre. An ideal stand-alone textbook for courses in the philosophy of religion, this volume is also readily compatible for use as a primary source reader in conjunction with a secondary text. It is a perfect companion to the editors' textbook, Reason and Religious Belief, Third Edition, as the two books share the same topical organization.
