Editorial Reviews


"Fourteen erudite, closely argued, and interconnected essays by an international array of authors...on the theology, philosophy, and pastoral practice of one of the eighteenth century's greatest Anglicans....Since many of the essayists attempt to identify the contemporary value of Butler's thought, this collection deserves the attention of philosophers, moral theologians, and historians."--Religious Studies Review

"Butler is well served by this collection....Butler specialists and everyone interested in eighteenth-century British moral and religious thought will welcome this fine collection of essays."--The Journal of Religion

"Historical balance and philosophical acumen combined to make this volume, overall, a worthy tribute to one whose "reverential submission to reality" A. Campbell Fraser found so refreshing."--Ethics

From the Back Cover

The essays in this book mark the tercentenary of the birth of Bishop Joseph Butler, the leading theologian of the Church of England in the 18th century and also an important moral philosopher. Thirteen distinguished contributors cover the full range of Butler's theological and philosophical writings--from his Christian apologetic against the deists to his discussion of the role of conscience in the moral agent--as well as setting them in their historical context and suggesting their relevance to contemporary religious and philosophical issues. At a time when there is a renewed interest in Butler's thought as well as in the theological positions he was opposing, it is both timely and appropriate that these detailed studies should not be made available. The Bishop of Durham has written a Foreword introducing the volume.
