The first publication of Beverley Clack and Brian R. Clack's exciting and innovative introduction to the philosophy of religion has been of enormous value to students, as well as providing a bold and refreshing alternative to the standard analytic approaches to the subject. This second edition retains the accessibility which made it popular for both teachers and students, while furthering its distinctive argument that emphasises the human dimension of religion. The text has been fully revised and updated. The traditional emphasis on the arguments for the existence of God is reflected in a newly extended and reworked investigation into natural theology. Recent developments in the subject are also reflected in updated chapters, and, in a move that highlights the originality of the authors' approach, they offer a critical engagement with current world events. An entirely new concluding chapter interrogates the connection between religion and terror, and demonstrates how philosophy of religion might be conducted under the terrible shadow of 9/11. This new edition of The Philosophy of Religion will continue to be essential reading for all students and practitioners of the subject.

Acclaim for the new edition: "With an unusual lightness of touch, the Clacks offer a superbly clear tour of the major arguments that draws on an exceptional range of illustrations and insights, closing with a discussion of religion post-9/11 that will help all who are seriously concerned to develop a truly thoughtful approach to religion for our time." George Pattison, Christ Church, University of Oxford "The Clacks have produced a clear, systematic, highly critical approach to philosophy of religion,covering the traditional and contemporary issues in field, as well as offering more attention to the naturalist critique of traditional religious belief." Charles Taliaferro, St. Olaf College "This substanstially revised second edition offers a timely update of Clack and Clack's popular The Philosophy of Religion. The authors insist that religion should cultivate a 'reflective, open and humane approach to life', while recognizing that religious beliefs emerge out of emotions, including anguish, turbulence and a longing for relationship. They celebrate the mutability of life, confronting the concrete realities of terror, birth and death." Pamela Sue Anderson, Regent's Park College, University of Oxford Acclaim for the first edition: "A first-rate book." Times Educational Supplement "Clearly written, well ordered, and straightforward. A lively book." Expository Times
