View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This anthology focuses on a variety of perspectives on religious faith with their differing approaches to the roles of reason, knowledge, the will, belief, and language. Engaging and accessible, it provides thought-provoking selections that will appeal to a large variety of readers. It opens by posing fundamental questions surrounding belief and unbelief, and then moves ahead to examine the arguments for God's existence and the four classic models of religious faith. The final sections of the text examine the rationality of religious faith through an analysis of Wittgnenstein and the plausibility of language games; it also details the possibility of a direct encounter with God through mystical or religious experience. This collection will prove especially appealing for laypersons interested in advanced areas of religious inquiry.
