From the Back Cover

“Pojman’s style is conversational, very accessible . . . , deeply serious but not without plenty of humor. One is moved by his account of his intimate personal odyssey through the minefields of religious belief.” — Theodore Guleserian, Arizona State University

“I consider This to be the best introductory text on the subject. Thank you for reprinting it and especially for making if affordable for students.” - William Settles, Harry S. Truman College

Why even say it's a kindle book? You can't read it on kindles. Super ridiculous. I thought the point of a kindle library was so that you can read anything in the library on your kindle. Stupid service.
