An excellent and affordable collection. This book would make an ideal introduction to the subject for a undergraduate course or the educated layperson. Strongly recommended!

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Hande Z on October 10, 2010
Format: Paperback
This book has a collection of fascinating essays, but its title is a little inappropriate. This is a book edited by a Christian and the majority of the contributors are Christians. It is more apt if it were titled "Arguing For Religion". This book is in the same vein as the 1999 Blackwell publication, "Philosophy of Religion: The Big Questions", edited by Eleonore Stump. The representations for the other side of the argument is poorly represented, not because the names were not big - Dawkins and Dennett each has a slice against at least two for Plantinga, Swinburne, Stump, and Kretzmann. The essays are noteworthy but the book is misleading. For a balance reading of this subject I would recommend the reader to read Mel Thompson's "Understand The Philosophy of Religion" as well. I gave the book two stars because it is extremely lopsided and the some essays were rationally flawed in that the existence of God was implied in the process of arguing for his existence.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Justin on January 5, 2013
Format: Paperback
I used this text for an introductory class on the philosophy of religion and it was more than adequate to supplement the lectures. It covers a wide range of topics, covering everything from ethics to whether or not creationism should be taught in schools. A previous reviewer said that this book tends to be in support of religion. While Timpe's introductions can appear this way, the essays themselves cover many arguments, both for and against. My recommendation would be to skip the chapter introductions and only read the essays.

Overall, this book provides an excellent anthology of essays, only slightly marred by Timpe's interjections. I would recommend this book to anyone taking a class on the subject or for anyone who would like to improve their understanding of the arguments surrounding religion.
