From the beginning of the history of ideas, philosophical reflection on matters of religion has played a vital role. What is the meaning of life, and how might religious faith or doubt impact such meaning? What is the evidence for the existence of God? Is evidence essential for religious faith? What is the relationship between science and religion? What is the relationship between religions? How can or should one assess virtues and vices, right and wrong, from a religious versus secular point of view?

In this beginner's guide, Charles Taliaferro addresses the important questions involved in philosophy of religion, covering all the major contemporary topics. He challenges the often complacent, negative attitudes toward religion as merely superstitious or dangerous, arguing instead for a healthy pluralism and respect between persons of faith and secular inquirers.

What is Philosophy of Religion? takes a practical, question-based approach to the subject, inviting the reader to engage with this exciting topic in a down-to-earth way.
