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

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."

This is first-rate book and will be useful in the classroom." Michael Beaty, Baylor University
