5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Contemporary Selections, March 25, 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Philosophy of Religion: A Reader and Guide (Paperback)
William Lane Craig and his section editors (Kevin Meeker, J.P. Moreland, Michael Murray, and Timothy O'Connor) have assembled a truly excellent set of readings in contemporary analytic philosophy of religion. The introductions to each section serve as overviews of main areas within philosophy of religion, and the readings represent some of the very best work being done in the field today. It would be a very valuable addition to the library of anyone who is interested in the subject--even if you already own some of its rivals (e.g. Pojman's Wadsworth anthology or the Oxford text edited by Basdinger, Hasker, Peterson, and Reichenbach).
Craig mentions in the introduction that he was more interested in choosing quality articles than in making sure to give the pro and con of every issue, and the result is that the selections are weighted in favor of (Christian) theism. Someone who is looking for a text that is perfectly balanced in its approach may be disappointed with the editors' choices. Insofar as this is the case, the book should be viewed by philosophically-inclined theists as an indespensible resource. And in spite of its mild bias, it would make an outstanding primary text for an upper division undergraduate or graduate course in philosophy of religion.
