Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Every essay offers clear and interesting discussions on a wide variety of topics within philosophy of religion and theology. Werther and Linville have done a fine job at bringing together these contributors to offer a careful analysis and development of the Christian worldview while at the same time engaging in cross-cultural assessment. This book deserves a close read from philosophers and theologians." - R.T. Mullins, University of St Andrews (Scotland, UK)
