Editorial Reviews


"This is a brilliant set of readings with unique and student-friendly commentaries that makes it an ideal, vibrant resource for the study and practice of philosophy of religion today." Charles Taliaferro, St. Olaf College

“For those with a basic grounding in Philosophy, this book represents an ideal introduction to Philosophy of Religion in the Western tradition. Oppy and Scott are to be commended for encouraging and enabling detailed engagement with some of the most important primary texts in the field.” Dr Elizabeth Burns, Heythrop College, University of London --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

Reading Philosophy of Religion offers a diverse collection of carefully chosen classical and contemporary texts in philosophy of religion accompanied by detailed and insightful commentaries as well as questions to stimulate further study. The readings reflect central topics of study: religious language; the existence of God; reason, argument and belief in God; divine properties; and religious pluralism. The twenty-two excerpts span the philosophical spectrum and include such thinkers as Alston, Anselm, Aquinas, Ayer, Berkeley, Boethius, Clifford, Hume, Paley, Pascal, Plantinga, Putnam and Rowe.

With its combination of thoughtfully chosen texts and illuminating analysis, Reading Philosophy of Religion is the ideal choice for an introductory textbook in philosophy of religion courses, or for any individual curious about the philosophical study of the nature of religion.

My copy of the book, has missing pages....WTF

Other than that the material is excellent. There are readings that you do not normally find in other Philosophy of Religion texts.
