Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"At first sight this book seems like a crisp, lucid and illuminating survey of a flourishing field in the philosophy of religion. It is this, and much more. Here is a mind searchingly and relentlessly philosophical, and yet exhibiting a strong awareness of Christian doctrinal tradition. Such is philosophical theology in the best sense."
Douglas Hedley, Clare College

"This unique book sympathetically analyses the incisive work done on theological questions by some recent analytic philosophers. It will become required reading for systematic theologians as well as for philosophers of religion."
Richard Cross, Oriel College, Oxford
