Editorial Reviews

Review

'…a very valuable resource for libraries and serious scholars.' – CHOICE

‘The work is sure to be an academic standard for years to come, given the notoriety of many of its contributors, ... the comprehensiveness of the categories of topics, the balance in the approaches presented, and the generally clear, but academically rigorous writing style … I shall heartily recommend The Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Religion to my students and colleagues and hope that libraries around the country add it to their collections.’ – Douglas Groothuis, PHILOSOPHIA CHRISTI

'Not only philosophers of all stripes, but also religious persons, scholars of religion and comparativists turn to the philosophy of religion as a crucial resource. Much work in the field has been rendered unhelpful by its narrow or exclusively Western focus. Here, finally, is a volume to fill the gap. With its comprehensive span of topics and chapters written by leading authorities, this will be a defining text for the emerging global approach to the philosophy of religion...The most up-to-date and authoritative introduction to the immediate past and the immediate future of the discipline currently available.' – Philip Clayton, Harvard University, USA

'This is an absolutely superb volume. The range of topics is remarkably wide, covering Eastern and Western religions, traditional arguments, orthodox doctrines, and also recent developments in the understanding of religious discourse. The editors have put together an ideal line-up of distinguished contributors, and the essays provide balanced overviews, whilst giving sufficient attention to detail to lead the reader into the problems and issues that make this such a fascinating and varied area of philosophy. Quite simply, this is a vital resource, as well as an immensely attractive one.' – Robin Le Poidevin, University of Leeds, UK

‘This book is distinguished by its comprehensive range and by the eminent list of philosophers who have written for it. It will be an indispensable guide to current thinking in the philosophy of religion.' – Keith Ward, Christ Church College, Oxford

'This is the best companion to philosophy of religion currently available. It provides expertly guided entry to recent work on a huge range of topics, and will be immensely useful to all students who are prepared to think about what they are reading.' – Graham Oppy, Monash University, Australia
