Overview

Richard Swinburne is one of the most distinguished philosophers of religion of our day. In this volume, many notable British and American philosophers unite to honor him and to discuss various topics to which he has contributed significantly. These include general topics in the philosophy of religion such as revelation, and faith and reason, and the specifically Christian doctrines of the Trinity, the Incarnation, and atonement. In the spirit of the movement which Swinburne spearheaded, the essays use analytic philosophical methods to examine doctrines in particular religious traditions, expanding upon traditional discussions of theism. As such, this volume represents a field-report on the interaction of philosophy and Christian thought in the English-speaking world. Swinburne has himself contributed an individual and personal Intellectual Autobiography.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Richard Swinburne has been one of the most influential apologists for the Christian faith in the twentieth century....All of the contributors are emminent thinkers in their own right....Each of the contributions is deserving of comment.... Any student of theology or philosophy would find this volume an exceptional, thought-provoking contribution, and an appropriate honor to one who has dedicated his life to defending Christianity from the attacks of secularism and atheism."—Southwestern Journal of Theology

"Each of the contributions is deserving of comment, but it must suffice here to say that each essay thoughtfully addresses some aspect of Swinburne's writings. The essays engage Swinburne and provide perspective in understanding his thought. Any student of theology or philosophy would find this volume an exceptional, thought-provoking contribution, and an appropriate honor to one who has dedicated his life to defending Christianity from the attacks of secularism and athesim."—outhwestern Journal of Theology
