This review is from: Companion to Philosophy of Religion (Paperback)
This book is a monster and well worth the price tag. The book deals with all facets of the Philosophy of Religion from philosophical issues in the world religions to new direction in the field of philosophy of religion. Some of the contributors are Robert Audi, William Lane Craig, Stephen T. Davis, C. Stephen Evans, Antony Flew, Thomas P. Flint, William Hasker, Paul Helm, John Hick, Brian Leftow, Ralph McInnerny, Michael Martin, Kai Nielsen, Terence Penelhum, Alvin Plantinga, William L. Rowe, Eleonore Stump, William J. Wainwright, Nicholas Wolterstorff, Keith Yandell, and many others. Some the issues/topics covered are Philosophical Theology, Philosophy of Religion in the Western World, Currents in Twentieth Century Philosophy, Theism and the Linguistic Turn, the Theistic Concept of God, Justification of Theistic Beliefs, etc. The individual articles by a given scholar range from "Theism and Physical Cosmology," "Theism and Evolutionary Biology," (all the classical arguments for God are covered), "Foreknowledge and Human Freedom," "Divine Command Ethics," "Omnipresence," "Being," "Simplicity," "Religious Language," "Early Modern Philosophical Theology," etc. There are 622 pages of articles covering everything imaginable. This is definitely an invaluable resource for those who are interested in the study of the Philosophy of Religion. As you can see from just the little I have included here, the book is very comprehensive and put together quite well.
