religion has as much value to modern life as Kanye West

Recommends it for: anyone interested in religious studies
This book does a great job of presenting both sides of religious arguments such as "Does God exist?" "Why is there evil if God exists?" "What are the attributes of God?" etc. Full of articles, essays, and lectures. I really enjoyed reading the book - it was informative, easy to read, and had good evidence for both sides of the arguments.
Read for TRELIG467 (Philosophy of Religion) at UW Tacoma.

This was a great text for introducing students to different areas of the analytical philosophy of religion. My biggest complaint is that so many of the articles were extremely old for an edition that was published so recently.
Made some very strong cases for his views on religion. His alternative for belief (i.e. hope) is a very interesting idea and perhaps a better alternative than atheism for those that cannot find themselves believing. Makes a generous defence of religion as an aid to ethics.
This was a great collection of essays. It was the text for my philosophy of religion class at BYU (a fantastic class.) It acted as a sort of taster for each of the authors of the different essays, so I think it's a great jumping off point for the subject.

Terrible book. Pojman would have us ignore the many important advances Wittgensteinians have made in the philosophy of religion, really never acknowledging them. He would keep us at astrology when we can study astronomy.
Very accessible, but analytically rigorous. The reader should probably work through this book with a group, or at least a teacher. Subjects start getting a little exhaustive in Ch.4 with the Ontological arguments.
Rob Durham
An a excellent compilation of arguments and counter-arguments over some of the most subjects in philosophy of religion.
One of two books being used in my Advanced Seminar.

This guy is starting to collect dust on my shelf. I pick it up from time-to-time, but I'm convinced I'll never finish it. So here's my review. I bought Pojman's anthology because it's flat-out the most content-rich, well-balanced presentation on the subject of the existence of God, or lack thereof. Pojman includes compelling arguments for both sides. This is a thinking person's read. Since it's an anthology, it's easy to jump around, as Pojman has arranged the works in a very logical manner.
