Richard Swinburne is one of the most distinguished philosophers of religion of our day. In this volume, many notable philosophers in Britain and america unite to honour him and to discuss various topics to which he has contributed significantly. These include general topics in the philosophyof religion such as revelation, and faith and reason, and the specifically Christian doctrines of the Trinity, the Incarnation, and atonement. In the spirit of the movement which Richard Swinburned has spearheaded, the essays in this collection use analytic philosophical methods to examine doctrines in particular religious traditions, expanding upon traditional discussions of theism. As such, this volume represents a field-report on theinteraction of philosophy and Christian thought in the English-speaking world: a fitting tribute to the Nolloth Professor of the Philosophy of Christian Religion at the University of Oxford. Richard Swinburne has himself contributed and individual and personal Intellectural Autobiography.Contributors: William P. Alston, David Brown, Richard M.

Editorial Reviews

`The book concludes with a highly valuable bibliography of Swinburne's works, followed by an index - not always an automatic feature in an anthology ... Viewed altogether, the articles in this book give testimony to the lively debates of which Richard Swinburne has been a part and the positiverole that Christian belief is enjoying in the philosophical world of our day. Their evident philosophical rigor demonstrates that Christian commitment and solid scholarship can go hand in hand, at least as long as philosophy does not usurp the place reserved for divine revelation.'Christian Scholar's Review
