Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Hobson (education, U. of New England, Armidale, Australia) and Edwards (Catholic Education Office, Sydney) set out philosophical underpinnings for the study and teaching of religion in liberal, pluralist societies such as Britain, the US, and Australia. They explore such issues as the truth status of religious statements and the moral acceptability of religious claims. They intend their account to be accessible to readers without philosophical training. The glossary does not indicate pronunciation. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c.
