""The essays on the Confessions, on the De Magistro, and on De Utilitate Credendi are minor classics in the secondary literature. All the essays together express a distinctive historical approach to the philosophy of religion. It is an approach that attends to the historical changes in the meaning of `religion,' to Hume's important role in that history, to the importance of the philosophy of mind to the philosophy of religion, and to a variety of important interrelations between metaphysical arguments, proofs, Newman-style cumulative-case arguments, and 'inferences to the best explanation,' on the one hand, and historical/biographical narratives and personal life experiences on the other."" -from the introduction.
