From miracles and resurrection, to intelligent design and the nature of faith, this Very Short Introduction explores the central issues in the philosophy of religion. It looks at the arguments for and against the existence of God, discussing the relationship between faith and reason, religion and morality, and the problems raised by the diverse and apparently incompatible claims of different religions. Jack Copeland offers a lively and accessible guide to some of the most profound questions that have fascinated and frustrated believers and non-believers alike for centuries: How can an all-knowing and loving God allow such pain and suffering to exist in the world? Where did the Universe come from? Is the Universe fine-tuned for life? What is the relationship between evidence, faith, and rationality? How does evolution fit with religious faith? With the importance of religion on the rise around the world, this VSI offers the perfect introduction to a subject that affects us all.
