Why does evil exist? Could God could create a stone he couldn’t lift? Does the wonder of life imply a creator? Philosophy of religion is concerned with such questions. Assuming no prior knowledge of philosophy, Taliaferro provides a clear exploration of the discipline, covering the key topics of morality and religion, evil, the afterlife, prayer, and miracles. Also containing a section dedicated to Hinduism, Buddhism and the Eastern religions, this helpful primer is the perfect resource for students or the general reader. Charles Taliaferro is Professor of Philosophy at St. Olaf College, Minnesota, USA. He is the author or editor of numerous books on the philosophy of religion including as co-editor of The Blackwell Companion to Philosophy of Religion.
