Abstract

The philosophy of religion has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years. This is fortunate, for it is a rewarding area in which to research and teach. The complexity of the metaphysical and epistemological ideas relevant to the philosophy of religion, however, can pose a challenge for instructors. Fortunately, the resurgence of activity in the field has brought with it an increase in the number of texts that aim to render these complex ideas accessible to students. In order to assist instructors in the selection of course material, this article examines four recently published texts in the philosophy of religion - two stand-alone texts and two anthologies - and judges their strengths and weaknesses and the types of classes for which each is best suited. © Teaching Philosophy, 2010.
