Much more than the biography of a family. It is in large measure the biography of an era . . . The reader comes away with the feeling that he has witnessed a panorama of intellectual history which transcends the records of individual failures and weaknesses.

A scholarly but non-technical elucidation and critique of two contemporary analytic philosophers, Alvin Plantinga and Richard Swinburne, who have attempted to develop a logical defense of theism. Parsons (religion and philosophy, Berry College, Rome, Georgia) assesses the theists' ability to establish their case, and also constructively criticizes the non-theist opposition. Recommended, particularly for the uninitiated. Reprint of the Norton edition of 1989. No revision has been done. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
