From the Back Cover:

Philosophy of Religion: The Basics offers a concise introduction to philosophy of religion, which condenses discussions and concepts of the subject to their succinct essence, providing a truly accessible entry into the subject.

The book captures the reader’s attention and imagination with its unique clarity and conversational tone. The text has been organized to lead the reader logically from topic to topic, explaining how subjects connect and point to one another. A wide range of issues within the philosophy of religion is addressed, beginning with the nature and functions of religion, then moving to different conceptions of the nature of God, including atheistic concepts. Conceptual analysis and the nature of argumentation are foremost concerns throughout the book. Arguments are presented both for and against the existence of God and are developed against one another to ensure a good balance between pro and con arguments; no position goes unsupported or uncriticized. Additional chapters shed light on issues including life after death, miracles, God and morality, divine attributes and dilemmas, human language and talk about God, religious experience, and faith and rationality.

About the Author:

Richard E. Creel taught Philosophy and Religion at Ithaca College, New York, for 30 years, during which time he served as Chair of his Department and President of the New York State Philosophical Association. Creel published numerous articles in philosophy journals and three books: Thinking Philosophically: An Introduction to Critical Reflection and Rational Dialogue (Blackwell, 2001), Divine Impassibility: An Essay in Philosophical Theology (1986), and Religion & Doubt: Toward a Faith of Your Own (1991, 1st edition 1977). After retirement, Creel was designated an Emeritus Professor for outstanding contributions.
