Excellent text for student and browser alike
on January 23, 2000
Hick has provided an astonishingly lucid analysis of all the major areas of Philosophy of Religion. This text is ideal for anyone studying the subject at higher or university level, who wants a sound overview of the theistic proofs, problem of evil, miracles, and western and eastern after-life traditions. My only caveat would be that his analysis of Religious Language can sometimes be too brief and thus slightly misleading (eg his section on Language Games). As a teacher, I recommend this book very highly.
