    The second edition of this excellent anthology in the philosophy of religion examines both the basic classical and a host of contemporary issues. Assuming little or no familiarity with the religious concepts it addresses, it provides a well-balanced and accessible approach to the field. The seventy-one articles cover standard subjects--including religious experience, theistic arguments, the problem of evil, and miracles--as well as topics that have recently gained the attention of philosophers of religion, such as reformed epistemology, the philosophical analysis of theological doctrine, and the kalam theological argument. The collection also discusses topics often requested by instructors but seldom covered in competing texts, including religion and science, religious pluralism, process theism, and religious ethics.
    An ideal teaching text, Philosophy of Religion, 2/e, is organized into thirteen thematic sections. Each section begins with a revised introduction and ends with updated suggestions for further reading. While it deals primarily with the Western tradition in the philosophy of religion, this second edition also adds readings representing continental, feminist, and Asian contributions to the field. New selections include essays by Sarah Coakley, the Dalai Lama, Richard Dawkins, Stephen Jay Gould, Lao Tsu, Moses Maimonides, and the Upanishads. Philosophy of Religion, 2/e, functions well as a stand-alone textbook for courses in the philosophy of religion and is readily compatible for use as a primary source reader in conjunction with a secondary text. It is an ideal companion to the editors' textbook, Reason and Religious Belief, 2/e (OUP, 1997), as the two books share the same topical organization.

    New material on divine foreknowledge and human freedom has been added as well as on Reformed epistemology. The discussions on science now cover new developments from cognitive psychology and naturalism as well as on the fine-tuning of the cosmos. The chapter on faith and reason has been expanded to include consideration of evidentialism. The problem of evil now forms its own new chapter and adds a discussion of the problem of hell. The standard features remain: a survey of the field, an examination of classical arguments for God's existence, and an exploration of contemporary challenges to theism from the social sciences and philosophy as well as the natural sciences. The meaning and significance of personal religious experience, revelation and miracles--all within the realm of contemporary religious pluralism--are likewise investigated. A classic introduction thoroughly updated and refreshed for today's student.

    Whether viewed as extreme skepticism or enlightened common sense, the writings of Berkeley are a major influence on modern philosophy. Bishop Berkeley (1685-1753) was one of the great British empirical philosophers. He believed that the existence of material objects depends on their being perceived and The Principles of Human Knowledge sets out this denial of non-mental material reality. At first his views were unfavorably received by the London intelligentsia, and the entertaining Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous are a clarification of the Realist argument and a response to accusations of atheism and skepticism. In the nineteenth century John Stuart Mill wrote that he considered Berkeley's work to be of greatest philosophic genius, and it is true to say that its Immaterialism has influenced many recent philosophers.

    Problem of Evil the Gifford Lectures Delivered in the University of St Andrews in 2003

    Problem of Evil the Gifford Lectures Delivered in the University of St Andrews in 2003
    $35.95
    It is generally supposed that the fact that the world contains a vast amount of suffering, much of it truly horrible suffering, confronts those who believe in an all-powerful and benevolent Creator with a serious problem: to explain why such a Creator would permit this. Many reflective people are convinced that the problem, the problem of evil, is insoluble. The reasons that underlie this conviction can be formulated as a powerful argument for the non-existence of God, the so-called argument from evil: If there were a God, he would not permit the existence of vast amounts of truly horrible suffering; since such suffering exists, there is no God. Peter van Inwagen examines this argument, which he regards as a paradigmatically philosophical argument. His conclusion is that (like most philosophical arguments) it is a failure. He seeks to demonstrate, not that God exists, but the fact that the world contains a vast amount of suffering does not show that God does not exist.

    Along the way he discusses a wide range of topics of interest to philosophers and theologians, such as: the concept of God; what might be meant by describing a philosophical argument as a failure; the distinction between versions of the argument from evil that depend on the vast amount of evil in the world and versions of the argument that depend on a particular evil, such as the Lisbon earthquake or the death of a fawn in a forest fire; the free-will defense; animal suffering; and the problem of the hiddenness of God.
