Table of Contents

Using a dialogue format, each chapter thoroughly explores such issues as: does God exist?; are religious experiences reliable?; the problem of evil: the nature of God; religious pluralism: religion and morality; the meaning of life; and life after death. Past and current philosophers are taken into account, and lists of suggested reading end each chapter. An excellent companion to anthologies in philosophy of religion, as well as a supplementary text in courses in metaphysics, ethics, and introductory philosophy.
