5.0 out of 5 stars Ten Essential Original Texts, July 15, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ten Essential Texts in the Philosophy of Religion: Classics and Contemporary Issues (Paperback)
This is a wonderful selection containing ten essential original texts in the philosophy of religion. It is organized into ten sections with the original essential texts generally followed by modern responses either directly to the texts or addressed to the important issues addressed by the texts. The first text is Plato's Euthyphro with a modern response "God and Moral Authority" by James Rachels. Similarly David Hume's argument against miracles (Of Miracles) is followed by Richard Swinburne's modern defense of miracles: (Miracles). As final example: Anselm's ontological argument for the existence of God is accompanied by Kant's key dispute of the ontological argument. Search inside the book (Table of Contents) if you want to see all the authors and article titles.

These are very well selected original texts and responses dealing with many key questions in the philosophy of religion. Much better to read them here than in a second hand recounting by someone else. They are accesible to college level readers and one need not be a philosophy major to understand the major points. Keep in mind that this is fairly dense stuff by its very nature however.
