23 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Pedro Rosario on September 7, 2001
This is one of the best anthologies I've ever found on the issues discussed within Philosophy of Religion. It covers different readings from Saint Teresa of Jesus, St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, up to William Alston, Blaise Pascal, Soren Kierkegaard, C. S. Lwis, John Hick, David Hume, William Rowe among many others. The book selects readings from the following subjects: Religious Experience, Faith and Reason, the attributes of God (the problems of his existence, his omnipotence, his omniscience and its relations with voluntary action, his timelessness, etc), theistic arguments (specially the ontological and cosmological arguments), the problem of evil, knowledge of God, religious language, miracles, among many others. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this text book for my religious studies class. It had a good collection of writings and was fairly easy to get discussions started.

This is not by any means a good standalone text for a general religious studies course however. It is just a collection of (somewhat more Christian by-in-large) essays. It is perfect when used in conjunction with other texts, multimedia, and discussion. It is not a book to hand a class and expect work sheet styled homework with.

What I really liked about this text though is that it gave me a way to dive head first into a new realm of philosophy without feeling overwhelmed. The essays are so haunting and intriguing that I made sure to keep this one on my research shelves for my work long after the class.
