A leader in interfaith interpretation of religion, Hick has written what will probably become a classic in the philosophy of religion. Clear, readable, and comprehensive, the book is an expansion of his 1986-87 Gifford Lectures. After outlining his argument in an introduction stressing the nature of religion as a family-resemblance concept, Hick investigates religion from numerous perspectives: phenomenological, epistemological, pluralistic, and in terms of soteriological, ethical, and truth-claims criteria in order to conclude "that the great world traditions constitute different conceptions and perceptions of, and response to, the Real from within the different cultural ways of being human." Highly recommended for all academic and seminary libraries.
