Item Description...
This new textbook combines a clear introduction to the themes traditionally covered in the philosophy of religion with contemporary developments in the discipline. The combination of traditional and alternative approaches makes it the most innovative introduction to the area currently available, while a range of exercises and student features provide a lively and accessible approach to the discipline. Most introductions to the philosophy of religion turn out, in practice, to be philosophic defences of religious belief, concentrating solely on the theistic tradition. This book differs from such an approach by offering a range of alternative views, and, in particular, by examining the human dimension of religion and religious belief. Thus, alongside helpful clarifications of such traditional issues as arguments for the existence of God, the problem of evil, and immortality, this book also addresses more neglected areas, like natural histories of religion, feminist approaches and revisionary accounts of religious belief. The book ends with reflections on the future of religion. The Philosophy of Religion will be essential reading for all students of the subject, as well as the interested lay reader.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A fine text for the theologian and non-theologian alike  Feb 2, 2002
Dr. Brian R. Clack has a welcome gift for anyone interested in the philosophy of religion. This book began my study of religion when I was only 15. Today, I keep THE PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION at hand whenever I need to rejuvinate my passion for this fascinating field of study.

Dr. Clack is particularly skilled at explaining several important key "proofs" for the existence of God. Although his discussion tends to favor the musings of Wittgenstein, his approach to other philosophies is rather comprehensive for a book of this size.

I've read a great deal of other texts since my first read of Clack's book, and I can say that there is no other superior introduction (or revision) to the philosophy of religion than this one. You'll keep it forever and will now have some profound things to say at your next cocktail party.

incredible  Jan 16, 2002
This is one of the best introductions to the philosophy to religion. The book forces the reader to think critically about the principle ideas concerning theology. An excellent buy!
compelling and intriguing - a true "diamond in the rough"  Dec 22, 1998
i know that brian did not expect me to read the text when it was given to me, but a nine hour flight doesn't offer a great deal to do. This is a compelling introductory piece that offers insights to questions that many of us fear to consider ourselves. It does so by offering ideas on God and religion, how they are related and what each means to you. It should be a required text for those at the introductory level and will bring about thoughts on the subject that otherwise would have never surfaced. It is masterfully written and stuctured in a manner so even the most elementary theologian/philosopher can read through it with great intrigue.
