In this remarkably accessible, concise, and engaging introduction to the philosophy of religion, Steven M. Cahn brings together a rich and balanced collection of fifty-two classic and contemporary readings. Most importantly, he has carefully edited the articles to ensure that they will be understandable to undergraduate students. Organized topically, the volume covers seven major areas: the concept of God, the existence of God, religious language, miracles and mysticism, belief in God, resurrection and immortality, and religious pluralism.
Ideal for basic courses in the philosophy of religion, Exploring Philosophy of Religion: An Introductory Anthology features selections from Augustine, Anselm, Maimonides, Thomas Aquinas, David Hume, William James, John H. Hick, Alvin Plantinga, William Alston, Richard Swinburne, and many others. Each reading is preceded by a detailed introduction and enhanced by explanatory notes. In addition, the text includes as an appendix Cahn's provocative and illuminating overview of the field--"God, Reason, and Religion"--which provides a synthesis and interpretation of the key issues raised in the readings.
