Questions of Faith: The Philosophy of Religion (Portable Professor Series)by Peter Kreeft
Is there a God? How can we explain the presence of evil? Do humans, or human souls, live on after death? Is there a hell? Through the ages, mankind has pursued the answers to such questions of faith. In this thought-provoking course, Professor Peter Kreeft examines these enduring questions and presents the most compelling arguments for and against the existence of God, the seeming conflicts between religion and science, and the different truth-claims of the world's most popular religions. By delving into the major characteristics of world religions -- including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism -- this course brings to light mankind's many varieties of religious practice. Above all, this course lays the groundwork for a rational approach to pursuing questions of faith, and at the same time provides a better understanding of religion's ongoing importance in the realm of human experience.
