Summary

What is the status of belief in God? Must a rational case be made or cansuch belief be properly basic? Is it possible to reconcile the concept of a goodGod with evil and suffering? In light of great differences among religions, canonly one religion be true? The most comprehensive work of its kind, Reason and Religious Belief, nowin its fourth edition, explores these and other perennial questions in thephilosophy of religion. Drawing from the best in both classical and contemporarydiscussions, the authors examine religious experience, faith and reason, thedivine attributes, arguments for and against the existence of God, divine action(in various forms of theism), Reformed epistemology, religious language,religious diversity, religion and science, and much more. Retaining the engaging style and thorough coverage of previous editions,the fourth edition adds a critical new chapter on the ontological status ofreligion and religious claims. It also features revised treatments ofomnipotence, miracles, and providence and updated suggestions for furtherreading. A sophisticated yet accessible introduction, Reason and ReligiousBelief, Fourth Edition, is ideally suited for use with the authors' companionanthology, Philosophy of Religion: Selected Readings, Third Edition (OUP,2006).
