    Religion in Analytic philosophy or from an analytical point of view. In my opinion, It is one of the best books to cover this area. The book covers the topics: Concepts of God, Philosophy and Religious Belief, Cosmological Arguments, Design Arguments, Ontological Arguments, Experience and God, Talking about God, Divine Simplicity, Omnipotence and Omniscience, /5. Cottingham combines careful, rigorous analysis and exemplary scholarship with rare sensitivity to the spiritual questions which animate the philosophy of religion but are too often obscured by it. Everyone interested in the philosophy of religion needs to read this elegant, compelling book.' Clare Carlisle - King’s College LondonCited by:

    Abstract. I shall understand by ‘philosophical theism’ the programme of giving a clear coherent account of the nature of God (broadly consonant with what has been believed about him by Christian, Islamic and Jewish thinkers of the past two millennia), and providing cogent arguments for the existence of such a God.   Philosophy of Religion is an engaging introduction to the main tenets of this fascinating subject, written clearly and with detailed enough explanation to be accessible to those new to the field, whilst providing original and challenging ideas to more experienced students.. The ideal introduction to this fascinating subject, providing a clear and engaging entry point to .

    Moral arguments for God’s existence form a diverse family of arguments that reason from some feature of morality or the moral life to the existence of God, usually understood as a morally good creator of the universe. Moral arguments are both important and interesting. They are interesting because evaluating their soundness requires attention. The lecture is very informative on the studies of philosophy of religion, however, it is very obviously influenced by James Hall's point of view of being agnostic. The philosopher may make the argument that one can never be impartial but I don't think the made enough of an effort to separate his own bias's from the lecture material/5.

New York: AMS Press, (OCoLC) At the heart of Theism, transcendence combines with immanence in the intoxicating thought that the infinite is also the intimate: God himself has a plan even for my life.

Every believer who has ever taken himself to receive divine guidance, as millions constantly do, has had this belief. Brian Davies has written an excellent introduction to the Philosophy of Religion.

He concentrates on theism, the doctrine of God as defined by the three major religions of the world, Judaism, Christianity and Islam/5(16). x Introduction from various beliefs peculiar to specific religions.

Lewis, and Henry David Thoreau, among others. Philosophical theism is the belief that the Supreme Being exists (or must exist) independent of the teaching or revelation of any particular religion. It represents belief in God entirely without doctrine, except for that which can be discerned by reason and the contemplation of natural laws.

In Arguing for Atheism, Robin Le Poidevin addresses the question of whether theism - the view that there is a personal, transcendent creator of the universe - solves the deepest mysteries of existence.

Philosophical defences of theism have often been based on the idea that it explains things which atheistic approaches cannot: for example, why the universe exists, and how there. this is a very technical philosophical defense of the existence of God. for the most part, i agree with swinburne, and i encourage those who have the acumen to digest difficult arguments to read this book.
