From the Publisher"A wonderful introduction to philosophy of religion, in part unconventional, but utterly convincing, written clearly, and with great common sense."
"Clearly written and eminently accessible. Imaginative and quite persuasive."
"No other introduction to philosophy of religion is nearly as gripping. Cahn is a master writer and here displays his characteristic clarity and crispness, careful organization, well-chosen examples, and broad range of topics (including good and evil, heaven and hell, miracles, meaning, faith, and the variety of world religions). His presentation is sophisticated but not dense, his arguments precise but not abstruse. As a compelling first encounter with the field, this book is perfect."
"A bold, dramatic invitation to the philosophy of religion. Cahn's writing is lucid and nicely paced. His organization of each chapter and of the book as a whole is close to ideal. The overall result is highly impressive and promises to excite students and general readers alike."
"An intriguing work that is both an accessible guide to core issues in the philosophy of religion and a challenging argument for the independence of religious commitment from belief in God. The writing is remarkably clear and displays compassion and humor. In view of the book's careful explanations and intriguing examples, it is well-suited not only for specialists but also for beginners in philosophy."
