"This is a fine collection. As well as familiar material reflecting the atheism–theism debate, there are essays dealing with the perspectives of nontheistic religions, and the bearing of art, psychoanalysis, and environmental ethics on religious concerns. The text offers an excellent overview of some of the best recent work in the field." Mark Wynn, University of Exeter <!--end-->


"This anthology isn't the standard fare. It contains sections on theistic arguments, evil, divine attributes, religious experience, and religious language, but it also pays attention to what makes a belief religious, religious values, personal identity, and death. The volume includes theistic, atheistic, and feminist essays which were clearly chosen for their relevance rather than for political correctness. The result is fresh and welcome." Keith Yandell, University of Wisconsin-Madison

"Taliaferro and Griffiths adroitly guide the modern student with verve and insight through the bewilderingly rich materials of contemporary philosophy of religion. I heartily recommend this magnificent aid to such a complex subject." Douglas Hedley, Clare College, Cambridge University
