Kevin Folkman, The Association for Mormon Letters A lively but brief survey of the major elements of religious philosophy, laying out short but understandable paragraph-length explanations of various arguments, and then the competing counterarguments. [Bayne] wisely draws no conclusions, and instead creates a foundation for further exploration, which is ultimately the goal of the many different titles in the Very Short Introduction series.
Frost Magazine A great thought-provoking book. Recommended.
Terry Eagleton, Distinguished Visiting Professor in English, University of Lancaster This lucid, rigorously argued book will gratify religious believers on one page only to unsettle them on the next, a sign of its admirable even-handedness.
