What tensions arise between philosophy of religion and theology? What strengths and weaknesses of analytical methods emerge in relation to strongly confessional philosophical theologies, or to Continental philosophies? Faith and Philosophical Analysis evaluates how well philosophy of religion serves in understanding religious faith. Figures who rarely share the space of the same book - leading exponents of analytic philosophy of religion and those who question its legacy - are drawn together in this book, with their disagreements harnessed to positive effect. Figures such as Richard Swinburne and Basil Mitchell reflect on their life-long projects from a perspective which has not previously been seen in print. A wide range of approaches found in contemporary philosophy of religion are explored, including: reformed epistemology, 'traditional' metaphysical theory building, feminist methodologies, Wittgensteinian approaches, and American pragmatism. Considering the trends in philosophy of religion as they are interacting across continents, looking particularly at philosophical influences in North America, Britain, and Continental Europe, this book will appeal to students, scholars and general readers with an interest in philosophy of religion, theology, or analytical philosophy.

Review:

'In this highly stimulating collection, a range of authors take the pulse of analytical philosophy of religion.' Arsdisputandi 'All in all, Faith and Philosophical Analysis is a timely and thought-provoking collection, one that could be read with interest and benefit both by those within the discipline of the philosophy of religion, however one construes it, and by those without. Who is within and who is without will remain in dispute, a dispute which some of us will hope continues to be characterised by clarity, rigour, and common sense that pervades this volume.' Religious Studies 'Readers of this volume will gain a good sense of the chief characteristics of analytical philosophy, of its historical context and development, of its impact on the philosophy of religion and of its chief problems and limitations... these essays do much to expose the legacy of a significant aspect of our philosophical heritage.' Theology
