Summary

This book contains a collection of the essential readings treating both classic and contemporary issues in philosophy of religion.


In addition to topics such as arguments for God's existence, the problem of evil, and divine attributes, it contains articles on divine hiddenness, the nature of revelation, and the doctrine of hell. As a result, this is an ideal text for use in courses on philosophy of religion and metaphysics at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The text gives special attention to very recent work in philosophy of religion and includes a section devoted to multi-cultural perspectives.
