Editorial Reviews

"I must congratulate the editors on the volume. It is verycomprehensive - bringing in the different religious traditions ofthe world and their philosophies, the history of the philosophy ofreligion, and some of its most modern developments. I think it hasgot the balance of its articles exactly right, focusing on themodern detailed analytic work, but not neglecting the widerperspective. It is very readable, and the various articles willserve as useful introductions to topics for students; it is a veryvaluable resource." Professor Swinburne, Oriel College,University of Oxford

<!--end-->"A superb collection! The topics are just right:from the religions of the world and currents in recent philosophyof religion to the theistic conception of God and the justificationof theistic belief. The writing is authoritative, but also livelyand stimulating. The book will be a valuable reference resource foryears to come." Robert L. Arrington, Georgia StateUniversity

This present volume which,offers a remarkably wide-ranging survey of philosophy of religionand philosophical theology in crisp and manageable essays byacknowledged authorities, is no exception."

Quinn and Charles Taliaferro are to be commended forputting together an excellent resource in philosophy of religion.This is indeed a 'companion', for here one finds wise guides to thestudy of key issues in the philosophy of religion.
