Many assume falsely that religious disagreements engage rules of evidence presentation and belief justification radically different than the ordinary disagreements people have every day, whether those religious disagreements are in Sri Lanka between Hindus and Buddhists or in the Middle East among Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'James Kraft's main goal to explore constructive ways of managing epistemic disagreement in general and religious disagreement in particular has never been more relevant. I'm impressed with his ability to simplify the concepts he discusses without sacrificing philosophical rigor. This book will be of value for those interested in epistemology, philosophical theology, or philosophy of religion.' - David Basinger, Professor of Philosophy, Roberts Wesleyan College

'James Kraft has produced a wonderfully readable treatment of a timely and important topic. Anyone reading this book will learn a great deal, not just about the epistemology of religious disagreement, but also more generally about what is going on at the cutting-edge of contemporary epistemology. A fine book, and a delight to read.'

- Duncan Pritchard, Chair in Epistemology, The University of Edinburgh
