"Swinburne's discussion offers the most sustained, and perhaps the most interesting, treatment of these and related questions from a philosophical perspective in many years....Admirably illustrates the usefulness of an analytic approach to problems in the philosophy of religion."--Religious Studies Review "Swinburne's lucidity, philosophical breadth and sophistication, excellence in argumentation, and boldness in conviction will set the standard in philosophy of religion for a long time to come."--The Philosophical Review "[Though] part of a larger series, [The book] can be read and appreciated on its own merit....[Swinburne] communicates well, and the interested philosophy of religion student will not only gain information here, but...can see a model of an appropriate philosophical method for our day. I would urge my students to brush up their intellectual skills by reading this book."--Southwestern Journal of Theology "Fills a needed niche in the study of the philosophy of religion."--Jack Cottrell, Cincinnati Bible Seminary
-Publisher

The practice of a religion such as Christianity is normally said to involve faith. But different theologians give different account of faith--some say it is simply a belief that God exists, other say it is trust in God. In this third and final volume of his trilogy on philosophical theology, Swinburne analyzes the purposes for practicing a religion--the attainment of salvation for oneself and the rendering of due worship and obedience to God--and concludes that both trust and belief are necessary for religious faith, but that the belief involved is a fairly weak kind--the belief that a certain creed is more likely than others to be true.
