Publisher's Description

Each field of study comes with its own set of questions; each period of time refines and redirects those questions. The Christian religion as we find it in the twenty-first century presents a unique set of problems to be solved and questions to be answered. In this introduction to the philosophy of the Christian religion, eminent philosopher and theologian Nancey Murphy applies the tools of philosophical analysis to a set of core yet contemporary religious questions: what does our historical moment mean for the possibility of knowing God? Is faith still possible? Does God intervene in human history? Is there such a thing as universal knowledge of God?

Written with the needs of students encountering the philosophy of religion for the first time in mind, this book provides a comprehensive introduction to the fundamental questions inherent in Christian faith. Murphy also provides tools for how to answer those questions.

Editorial Reviews

"Nancey Murphy has written an excellent and comprehensive survey.  She expertly faces current challenges, while deftly placing everything within its historical context."–Roger Trigg, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy, University of Warwick


"Professional philosophers are interested in many important matters but usually ignore or neglect questions about the rationality of religion. This wonderfully lucid book documents centuries of hard thinking about the reasonableness of theism, and then engages in a more systematic discussion of the question of God, providing scholars and students with a challenging set of proposals that will repay close attention." –Fergus Kerr, Honorary Professor, School of Divinity, University of St Andrews
