A Companion to Philosophy of Religion [Book Review]

Dialogue 38 (4):904-907 (1999)
  Copy   BIBTEX


The Companion to Philosophy of Religion consists of seventy-eight newly commissioned essays, each five to eight pages in length on a large page, in eleven parts concerned with: philosophy in the major religions of the world; theology in Western history; twentieth-century currents in philosophy of religion; the linguistic turn; divine attributes ; justification of theistic belief; challenges to theistic belief; theism and modern science; theism and values; theistic doctrines ; and new directions in philosophy of religion. Within any given essay, significant points are cross-referenced to other essays, and, finally, in the bibliographies, to books outside this volume. The title calls the book a companion—a companion, one presumes, to anyone interested in philosophy of religion. Companions are friendly by definition, and often helpful. The front flap says it is a guide. The back cover adds that it is comprehensive and authoritative. Presumably, anyone wishing to go anywhere in the field of philosophy of religion can get there by means of this trustworthy companion and guide.
