Philosophy and the Christian Worldview is a collection of new essays written by fifteen philosophers of religion. Bringing together some of the leading lights in current academic philosophy of religion, including William Hasker, Charles Taliaferro and Keith Yandell, it offers a fresh perspective on four major areas of discussion: Religion and Epistemology; Religion and Morality; Religion and Metaphysics; and Religion and Worldview Assessment. United by the argument that the core claims of religion have metaphysical, epistemic and moral entailments, these essays represent a state of the art discussion in contemporary philosophy of religion.

Editorial Reviews

"Philosophy and the Christian Worldview is an exciting, rigorous, fresh treatment of a number of important issues that surface in the act of assessing the merits of a Christian worldview.¿ What impressed me most about the book is its unity and thematic development.¿ While the book included a number of different authors, they have managed to write as one.¿ The book moves carefully from the issue of religious pluralism and worldview assessment, to epistemic topics relevant to the topics surfaced in part one.¿ Given these epistemic considerations, we are then presented with discussions of the relationship between religion and morality and religion and central metaphysical concerns.¿ This book will make an excellent text for a course in philosophy of religion."¿ -- JP Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Biola University, USA and author of Consciousness and the Existence of God (Routledge, 2008)
