"Taliaferro has written a lively, engaging introduction to contemporary philosophy of religion. It combines current "front-burner" issues with a solid background of traditional themes, and incorporates welcome attention to non-Western religious traditions." William Hasker, Huntington College"Taliaferro covers a vast field at an invigorating pace, giving a clear bird's-eye view of the territory, but also drawing attention to some of the details of debate ... One cannot fail to be impressed both by the number and range of philosophical positions and arguments covered, and by the efficiency and clarity with which they are summarised ... it is a must for everyone working in the philosophy of religion: undergraduate, PhD student and teacher alike." Robin Le Poidevin, University of Leeds Religious Studies"...good overview...very informative...good for students" Nederlands Theologisch Tijdschrift

This book will quickly become an indispensable teaching tool." Paul J. Griffiths, University of Chicago"Taliafero's book combines a staggering breadth of research with a careful attention to organization and development the result is an extremely helpful map of the conceptual landscape in contemporary philosophy of religion." Patricia Sayre, Saint Mary's College"Taliafero has written a lively, engaging introduction to contemporary philosophy of religion. It combines current 'front-burner' issues with a solid background of traditional themes, and incorporates welcome attention to non-Western religious traditions." William Hasker, Huntington College"Taliafero provides and open-minded and stimulating introduction which will encourage readers to form their own views about some of the deepest issues confronting human beings." Roger Trigg, University of Warwick"While he places at the center of the book the philosophical articulation of theism and theistic themes, author Taliafero develops these themes in conversation with four other living world religion, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, an Buddhism, and with various atheistic or agnostic challenges to them. This is first-rate book and will be useful in the classroom." Michael Beaty, Baylor University
