Recommends it for: students of philosophy and religion
Alvin Plantinga is considered to be the most achieved philosopher of religion working today. He has been featured in Time Magazine for his influential reworking of Anslem's ontological argument for the existence of God. His work is always interesting, unexpected, rigorously logical, and often funny. This is an excellent reader for those interested in Plantinga yet not interested in wading through long, dense book-length arguments. But it will certainly make you hungry for more.
This is a collection of Plantinga writings, along with some explanatory notes. It was put together by a former classmate of mine, James Sennett.
See my review of God and Other Minds by the same author.
Gavin Brown
This is a collection of Plantinga's writings, and contains his brilliant free will defense. Plantinga argues for his conclusions with extreme clarity and care; and this collection will give you a taste of the finest that analytic philosophy has to offer, theistic or otherwise.
