Does God exist? What about evil and suffering? How does faith relate to science? Is there life after death? These questions fascinate everyone and lie at the heart of philosophy of religion. Chad Meister offers an up-to-date introduction to the field, focussing not only on traditional debates but also on contemporary concepts such as the intelligent creator. Key topics, such as divine reality and the self and religious experience, are discussed in relation to different faiths.
Introducing Philosophy of Religion:
· offers a lucid overview of contemporary philosophy of religion
· introduces the key figures in the history of philosophy of religion
· explores the impact of religious diversity and pluralism
· examines the main arguments for and against the existence of God and the nature of the divine
· looks at science and issues of faith and reason
· explores how the different religions approach the concept of life after death.
The wealth of textbook features, including tables of essential information, questions for reflection, summaries, glossary and recommendations for further reading make the book ideal for student use. Along with its accompanying Reader, this is the perfect introductory package for undergraduate philosophy of religion courses.
