2 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Norman Schultz on May 7, 2011
Format: Paperback
First of all, this is a textbook in the true sense. An anthology priced at $124 isn't targeting the casual reader. Now any student using this book will indeed learn a great deal - I teach philosophy of religion and currently use this text. But there are some problems with it, especially considering that its quality is relative to the field (other philosophy of religion textbooks). I find myself trying to replace it because as it stand right now I have to supplement the text with a fair number of handout readings.

Pros:
- It does cover all the standard bases for a first philosophy of religion course
- There are quite a few boxed excerpts that prove quite helpful, from good modern authors such as Harry Frankfurt, Bill Rowe, Michael Martin, and many more.
- There are several solid readings that you don't find in other texts, such as Davison's "Divine Knowledge and Human Freedom" and Parsons' "Reformed Epistemology: An Atheist Perspective" and others.

Cons:
- There are some poor readings where better ones are available, such as "The Cosmological Argument: An Appraisal" by the Yandells, and Mackie's "Critique of the Moral Argument."
- There are some obvious omission, such as Mackie's "Miracles and Testimony" and Mavrodes "Religion and the Queerness of Morality."
- The sections "Evolution" and "Religion, Ethics, and the Meaning of Life" are poorly thought out - the former has nothing on Intelligent Design and the latter does not address Divine Command Theory sufficiently at all.
- Most of us who teach philosophy of religion recognize that student needs a little general background in philosophy (there is no prerequisite for the course) and this text provides nothing for that purpose.
- At $124 it should be hardcover.

Format: Paperback
This book takes difficult concepts and makes them relevant for both college students and lay persons. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenges it presented to my belief system and the growth I have experienced because of it. I strongly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
I thought the book did a tremendous job of merging the difficult issues of philosophy and religion together in such a manner as to make the average college student able to get a good grasp on the subject material.
