Publishers Description
In over 75 essays, this text provides a comprehensive guide to the philosophy of religion. The volume surveys philosophical issues in the religions of the world, philosophical thought about religion in Western history, and important currents in 20th-century philosophy of religion. Theism is treated systematically in discussions of religious language, the concept of God, arguments for and against theistic belief, and its relations to other aspects of culture, such as science and values. A final section on new directions in philosophy of religion explores feminism, religious pluralism, and comparative philosophy of religion.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Impressive  Aug 3, 2004
This book is a nice addition to the philosophy of religion. A book of essays by leading scholars, the Companion covers the major religions of the world, but deals mostly with theistic religions, especially Christianity. The articles are short and to the point: you won't have to plough through philosophical journals or big books to get to the important stuff. Look at each essay as a 'Cliffs Notes'.

Many philosophy of religion books are pro-classical theism. This one is different, sort of. In this book, you'll see articles on process theism and religious pluralism. Comparative philosophy of religion is also addressed. This is refreshing, especially for those who no longer stand within the classical tradition.

In summa, a fine addition to philosophy of religion.

Well rounded, very informative  May 27, 2002
I agree with the last review. This book serves as an excellent reference to philosophy students and hobbyists. With so much information, you might as well leave it out instead of putting it up in a bookshelf. It would be best, I think, to have at least an introductory knowledge in general philosophy before reading this. I became interested in the philosophy of religion after reading a little apologetics. This book was exactly what I was looking for. After this, I just might check out other books in the Blackwell companion series.
A Superb Collection of Works  Oct 11, 2000
This book is a monster and well worth the price tag. The book deals with all facets of the Philosophy of Religion from philosophical issues in the world religions to new direction in the field of philosophy of religion. Some of the contributors are Robert Audi, William Lane Craig, Stephen T. Davis, C. Stephen Evans, Antony Flew, Thomas P. Flint, William Hasker, Paul Helm, John Hick, Brian Leftow, Ralph McInnerny, Michael Martin, Kai Nielsen, Terence Penelhum, Alvin Plantinga, William L. Rowe, Eleonore Stump, William J. Wainwright, Nicholas Wolterstorff, Keith Yandell, and many others. Some the issues/topics covered are Philosophical Theology, Philosophy of Religion in the Western World, Currents in Twentieth Century Philosophy, Theism and the Linguistic Turn, the Theistic Concept of God, Justification of Theistic Beliefs, etc. The individual articles by a given scholar range from "Theism and Physical Cosmology," "Theism and Evolutionary Biology," (all the classical arguments for God are covered), "Foreknowledge and Human Freedom," "Divine Command Ethics," "Omnipresence," "Being," "Simplicity," "Religious Language," "Early Modern Philosophical Theology," etc. There are 622 pages of articles covering everything imaginable. This is definitely an invaluable resource for those who are interested in the study of the Philosophy of Religion. As you can see from just the little I have included here, the book is very comprehensive and put together quite well.
