The existence and nature of the divine is a universal and pervasive question - from the origin of the universe to the source of moral goodness, we find God at the heart of so many philosophical and popular debates. The God of Philosophy brings these to life by opening up the discussion of God to new readers and students of philosophy. With wit, clarity, and style, Roy Jackson provides an animated introduction to the philosophy of religion. Surveying such diverse topics as arguments for and against the existence of God, the possibility of life after death, linguistic complications, and the concept of the divine, The God of Philosophy offers a wide-ranging examination of the central questions of the discipline. Challenging, exciting, and always fair, this book is a comprehensive introduction to the philosophy of religion.
