Item description for The Philosophy of Religion (Scm Core Text) by Gwen Griffith-Dickson...

Overview
The SCM Core Texts are a collection of textbooks designed to help undergraduates at level two and three navigate their way through a variety of subjects. Covering philosophy of religion, religious studies, biblical studies and theology, they aim to offer students an intelligent helping hand in their core areas of study. Each book is designed individually and places an emphasis on pedagogical tools to aid the learner. These tools vary according to suitability across the subjects covered, but include features such as questions for reflection at the end of chapters, textboxes to further explain concepts or provide examples, some web-based materials on companion web-sites which are freely accessible. The textbooks are intended to be used as core reading on undergraduate courses, and as companions to assist lecturers in their classrooms and are all available on the SCM inspection copy scheme. Spiritual encounters and the problems raised by evil and suffering are the experiences that affect our religious beliefs most powerfully. In this far-reaching textbook on the philosophical study of religion Gwen Griffith-Dickson fills a gap in the market by considering these questions in the context of the world's many religions and philosophical traditions, giving attention to Continental European and Eastern philosophy as well as to Anglo-American thinking. This is the only textbook of its kind to offer the reader such a wide and inclusive overview of contemporary philosophical study of religions.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Philosophy of Religion (Scm Core Text)?

ATTENTION PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION SCHOLARS!  Nov 28, 2006
This is one of the best works written recently in the philosophy of religion. An ideal text for upper-undergraduate courses in the departments of philosophy/theology/comparative religion in Anglo-American colleges and universities. The author displays an amazing knowledge of three diverse approaches to the philosophy of religion, namely, the Analytic, Continental, and Comparative approach, which are still in great need of dialogue in the US, where philosophy of religion is mostly studied from a Christian/Analytic perspective. To my amazement, the author is not well known in the US and even in Britain as one of the leading scholars in the area. Hopefully, that situation will change very soon.
 
Astonishing range  Sep 27, 2005
This introduction to world religions is lucid and clear, but does not short change the reader with over-simplifications. The full complexities of the religious issues at hand are explored using a full pallet of conceptual, historical and scientific tools. This book is quite an accomplishment.
