The most complete introductory anthology in the philosophy of religion, at half the price.With nine new readings and expanded pedagogical features, the fourth edition of Philosophy of Religion: Selected Readings continues to be the most complete introductory anthology in the philosophy of religion. Seventy-eight selections provide breadth and depth of coverage in both classical andcontemporary issues, allowing great flexibility in course structure. All standard subjects are covered, including religious experience, theistic arguments, the problem of evil, and miracles. While this edition primarily contains readings from the Western tradition of religious thought, it alsoincludes continental, feminist, and Asian perspectives for contrast and flavor. Philosophy of Religion: Selected Readings, fourth edition offers many pedagogical advantages. Section introductions have been substantially expanded to orient students to major issues, and to help them comprehend the positions and arguments in the readings. The suggested reading list at the end ofevery section has been revised and lengthened, and new terms have been added to the Glossary at the end of the book. As in the previous edition, Study Questions appear at the end of each selection to engage students in philosophical thinking. This broad anthology is an excellent, stand-alone textbook for courses in philosophy of religion. It is also a perfect companion to the accompanying text by the same authors: Reason and Religious Belief, fourth edition (OUP, 2006), as the two books share the same topical organization.
