A good introduction that provides background and focuses on being understandable. I enjoyed his point-counterpoint approach on many of the issues, though some of them were simplified due to the obvious constraints of an introductory text.

This was the textbook for the class Philosophy of Religion. This book will introduce the reader to a variety of approaches to proving the existence of God and ideas that challenge the existence of God. The thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars was the lack of structure in explaining each idea.
