Wolfson on Religious philosophy:
Wolfson's many well-known and celebrated volumes are monuments to the keen vision and depth of his works on religious philosophy, Philo: Foundations of Religious Philosophy in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam; The Philosophy of the Church Fathers: Faith, Trinity, Incarnation; The Philosophy of the Kalam, and Kalam Repercussions in Jewish Philosophy, in 1979, twenty years after his retirement from Harvard University.

Religious Philosophy:
This 'group of essays' was originally published by Harvard University Press, in a chapter for lecture presentation of the wide scope essays. It represent a full-fledged monographs of high quality and full spectrum religious philosophic issues, selected from various lectures delivered by him at Dumbarton Oakes Symposia, Harvard, and Emory, Fordham Universities, N.S. of social Research, or reprinted from various academic journals. Reading this variety of thought engaging philosophical and theological essays, that has spanned fifteen years 1947-61, provides the reader with a taste of wolfson's 'Philosophic Garden,' of his above mentioned works. This fine tome in its own right would be a scholar's pride, with a major contribution to its field, Wolfson makes clear the Jewish role in the development of Islamic philosophy and Western thought.
