Editorial Reviews


'John Hick presents the case for and against religious faith lucidly and concisely in the form of a dialogue, opposing a wide range of assertions and arguments from the great world religions to the principles and counter-arguments of science-based materialism. Although the author makes his own position clear, the work is not didactic, and the reader is made to test his/her own faith or doubt against the various arguments put forward. This book is an illuminating, timely, humane contribution to a debate which often generates more heat than light, and for anyone with a serious personal interest in the subject it is as enthralling as a good play.' - David Lodge 'An excellent summary of Hick's refreshingly open and mind-expanding views on standard topics of Philosophy of Religion.' - Marilyn McCord Adams, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA. 'This book does an excellent job of presenting the heart of John Hick's arguments to the intelligent reader, without presupposing technical background.' - Elizabeth Burns, Heythrop College, University of London, UK. 'The distinguished liberal theologian John Hick...uses the neglected form of the Platonic dialogue to treat the currently hot topic of the grounds for religious faith and the arguments against it.' - David Lodge, The Guardian 'At 88 years of age, with numerous books to his credit, the past holder of Professorships in both the UK and the US, Hick is one of the great apologists for religious Faith in our time. This latest book represents a brilliant, accessible summa of his philosophical and theological opinions. His faith and commitment to pursue truth wherever it leads shine through on every page. You do not have to share all his beliefs to admire the skill with which he makes his case or learn from his arguments.' - The Church of England Newspaper

Format: Paperback
While a huge fan of this writer, this book was in my experience not one of his best. You would do better to pick up one of his older but more reliable works like The Second Christianity, which while less chatty in format, is more helpful and readable in my view. The aim of this book is to 'reach out' to those disillusioned with traditional forms of faith yet it is not easy for philosopher to do this - noble though the attempt may be. The same could be said of his Fifth Dimension book, of the same vein, which talks for too long about some issues which seem to have less technical value.

The world lost the brilliance of John Hick this year when he passed away this year (2012) - he changed the terms of the technical philosophical discussions of religion (and of belief) in ways we should all be grateful for, for he pushed hard for a square facing of the toughest possible questions. And for this, I for one will always be grateful.

'Four Views on Salvation in a Pluralistic World' is a symposium book, and an excellent place to see him in discussion with leading Christian writers who tried so hard to attack his work.
