    Faces in the Clouds: A New Theory of Religion. [REVIEW]Paul J. Levesque - 1997 - Review of Metaphysics 50 (3):660-660.
    Guthrie has an interesting point: "I claim religion consists of seeing the world as humanlike and arises because doing so is a good bet even though, like other bets, it may fail". This book is best understood by identifying its two interwoven arguments. The first is that religion is anthropomorphism. The second is that this anthropomorphism is due to a perceptual strategy. He does an admirable job of presenting the first. Marshaling the thought of Spinoza, Hume, Feuerbach, and others, he (...)

    Christian Spirituality and the Culture of Modernity: The Thought of Louis Dupré. [REVIEW]Paul J. Levesque - 1999 - Review of Metaphysics 53 (1):154-154.
    This book is a tribute to the thought and person of Louis Dupré. The editors caution that this “is not a Festschrift” because the work and wisdom of Dupré continue to expand even after his retirement from Yale as T. Lawrason Riggs Professor in the Philosophy of Religion.

    Critical Terms for Religious Studies. [REVIEW]Paul J. Levesque - 2000 - Review of Metaphysics 54 (1):173-173.
    This is a multidisciplinary and multicultural study of traditional and contemporary terms and issues in religious studies. It “is intended as a guide for people who are seeking a more adequate understanding of the history as well as the contemporary significance of religion”. This work is neither a dictionary nor an encyclopedia. It is a collection of essays discussing terms meaningful to religion in its postmodern context. The essays are not intended to provide a basic outline for the undergraduate. They (...)

    Philosophy of Religion: A Guide to the Subject. [REVIEW]Paul J. Levesque - 2000 - Review of Metaphysics 53 (3):693-694.
    A more descriptive subtitle for this work would have been, “A Thomistic Guide to the Subject.” In many ways this book is an updated incarnation of introductory texts in philosophy written decades ago for use in Catholic seminaries and institutions.

    Religious Mystery and Rational Reflection: Excursions in the Phenomenology and Philosophy of Religion.Paul J. Levesque - 1999 - Review of Metaphysics 52 (3):673-674.
    This book is a collection of nine previously published articles from 1980–92. Of the more than 150 original articles Dupré has written, these are an excellent representation and overview, weaving the threads of his thought together. In general the venture of combining articles into books is fraught with difficulties; yet these articles are presented as a cohesive work, unfolding gracefully in three sections, starting with methodological questions, leading to religious symbolization, and ending with the shape of religious experience in the (...)

    Studies in Gnosticism and in the Philosophy of Religion.Paul J. Levesque - 1998 - Review of Metaphysics 52 (1):152-153.
    This book gathers together eight essays which are loosely united by the thin thread of gnosticism. In fact, this thread is not long enough to extend to the last three chapters which embrace a different theme, namely, philosophy of religion, broadly understood. The first and second chapters complement each other nicely. The first treats the early gnostics and in so doing raises such basic questions as the complex origins of gnosticism and the multifarious expressions which can be identified under this (...)

  17. Metaphysics and Culture. [REVIEW]Paul J. Levesque - 1997 - Review of Metaphysics 50 (4):883-883.
    On a cold Sunday afternoon in February, the fifty-eighth Aquinas Lecture was presented at Marquette University by Louis Dupré. His unassuming gentle manner coupled with his expert command of philosophy, theology, science, and literature left no doubt that those assembled were in the presence of greatness. Following his presentation, an expanded version of this lecture was made available in print. This small volume takes its well-deserved place as Dupré's twelfth book, in addition to the five he has edited.

  18. Mystery and Method: The Other in Rahner and Levinas. [REVIEW]Paul J. Levesque - 2000 - Review of Metaphysics 53 (4):951-951.
    To attain mastery of the writings of one seminal thinker is no small achievement; Purcell succeeds twice. This book is not for the philosophically timid. It is a work best suited for the true scholar of either Rahner or Levinas, with more than a general knowledge of both. This work is a significantly revised version of Purcell's doctoral thesis completed in Louvain, Belgium. It is brimming with quotations and references to primary and secondary works.

  19. Providence and the Problem of Evil. [REVIEW]Paul J. Levesque - 2000 - Review of Metaphysics 54 (2):461-461.
    The problem of evil remains a central objection to belief in God for many professional and would-be philosophers. In this final volume of his tetralogy on the philosophy of Christian doctrine, Swinburne provides a coherent attempt to respond to this issue.
