Religious Thought, Theology and Philosophy of Religion


This important new volume is a combined anthology and guide intended for use as a textbook in courses on the philosophy of religion. It aims to bring to the student the very best current work on important topics in the field. The anthology is comprised of six sections, each of which opens with a substantive introductory essay followed by a selection of influential writings by prominent philosophers of religion: -- Religious Epistemology deals with the rationality of theism and theistic beliefs. -- Existence of God presents the cosmological, teleological, axiological, noological, and ontological arguments for the existence of God. -- Coherence of Theism covers the divine attributes of necessity, eternity, omnipotence, omniscience, and goodness. -- Problem of Evil treats both the internal and external challenge posed by evil to theistic belief. -- Soul and Immortality explores the substantiality and immateriality of the soul and implications for life after the death of the body. -- Christian Theology handles problems posed by the Trinity, incarnation, atonement, damnation, and prayer. Philosophy of Religion provides an ideal resource for studying the central questions raised by religious belief.
