What are the inherent claims that lie at the core of religion? Which of them are defensible by reason, and which are not? Potential answers to these questions and more, from influential philosophers past and present, may be found in this short book edited by Steven M. Cahn. Featuring fifty-two classic and contemporary readings, Exploring Philosophy of Religion: Text and Readings is a topically-organized anthology that presents broad coverage of seven major areas in the philosophy of religion - the concept of God, the existence of God, religious language, miracles and mysticism, belief in God, resurrection and immortality, and religious pluralism - in a clear and accessible format. With guiding introductory material from Professor Cahn, each of the readings has been carefully selected and edited for maximum clarity and comprehensiveness; only the most essential material is included. To further foster understanding, the text also features an appendix consisting of Professor Cahn's monograph, God, Reason, and Religion, which provides a synthesis and interpretation of the crucial issues raised throughout the readings.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Exploring Philosophy of Religion pares down the number of articles normally included in a philosophy of religion anthology, focusing on the most significant topics and selecting the most significant and accessible texts. It comprises an elegant, well-designed course in the philosophy of
religion."--Kevin Zaragoza, University of Georgia
"Professor Cahn has assembled an excellent collection of topics--broad enough to give students a good feel for the discipline as a whole while not overwhelming them with details/articles that might be beyond the scope of an undergraduate course."--Matthew T. Puglisi, Queens College (City University
of New York) and Hofstra University
"'God, Reason, and Religion' [the appendix] is a wonderful introduction to philosophy of religion. Utterly convincing, written clearly, and with great common sense."--Peter Singer, Princeton University
