The authors use the methods of current analytical philosophy to help the student to rationalize the main philosophical problems involved in a theistic understanding of God and the world. The chapters examine the important classical and contemporary problems, present the ideas of major philosophers, offer critiques (sometimes offering and defending new positions), and indicate some fruitful directions for further investigation.

A favorite at a wide range of colleges and universities nation-wide, thiscomprehensive introduction to the philosophy of religion examines all thestandard topics as well as new issues such as Reformed epistemology, thephilosophical analysis of theological doctrine, and the Kalam cosmologicalargument. Special attention is given to important subjects not often consideredin other introductions, such as process theism, religious pluralism, and therelation of religion and morality. Each chapter begins with a concrete exampleor situation to draw students into thinking about the particular issue and toencourage them to come to their own conclusions. Each chapter includes studyquestions and a list of suggested readings. Focusing mainly on issuessurrounding classical theism, the book also deals where helpful with issuesrelated specifically to Judeo-Christian theism and to non-Western traditionssuch as Hinduism and Buddhism, making it especially well-rounded.
