A Dictionary of Philosophy of Religion is more than a dictionary, it is a tremendous achievement. The significantly updated 2nd edition guides the reader through a breathtaking exploration of key ideas and figures from both eastern and western traditions. It also contains an updated essay on the state of play in the field, along with other excellent resources of value to students and teacher. It will surely become an essential companion to anyone with an interest in the intersection of philosophy and religion. * Victoria Harrison, Professor of Philosophy, University of Macau, China * Taliaferro and Marty have produced a masterly 2nd edition to this guidebook to the philosophy of religion. New contributors have been brought to the table, the content has been expanded to include more non-Western figures, and the already excellent overview has been updated. Essential reading for anyone working in the field, and a testimony to its vibrancy. * Fiona Ellis, Professor of Philosophy, University of Roehampton, UK, and Director of the Centre for Philosophy of Religion, Heythrop College, University of London, UK * Taliaferro and Marty have brought together a fine team of scholars to produce an up-to-date, concise philosophy of religion dictionary that will ably serve both the novice and the scholar. Besides the accessible, succinct entries, the dictionary contains certain bonus features: excellent introductory material, a useful philosophical/historical timeline, and an extensive bibliography for further reading. A terrific resource! * Paul Copan, Professor and Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics, Palm Beach Atlantic University, USA, and co-editor of the Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Religion * With its concise, clear, yet comprehensive entries on the major themes and historical figures in the discipline and in its environs, this is a very useful reference work for students of the subject. * Tim Mawson, Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy, the University of Oxford, UK, and author of Belief in God: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Religion * In conversation with some of the finest philosophical minds of our day, Taliaferro and Marty have crafted the quintessential philosophy of religion dictionary. Engaging, au courant, and filled with luminous definitions and clever examples, this unique and cross-cultural work offers a rich learning experience for both neophytes and experts. This resource is a truly outstanding accomplishment. * Chad V. Meister, Professor of Philosophy, Bethel College, USA, and author of Introducing Philosophy of Religion * This dictionary is precisely what a student will reach for regularly as the class notes and assigned readings turn cryptic. The entries are very well chosen and the brief definitions-some standing as actual discussions-are presented with clarity and economy. It is a volume that will earn the thanks of untold numbers. * Daniel N. Robinson, Professor in the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Oxford, UK, and Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Georgetown University, USA. * This dictionary is informative, highly comprehensive, and a valuable research resource for students and scholars alike. * Robert Audi, Professor of Philosophy, University of Notre Dame, USA, and General Editor of The Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy * ...[a] valuable resource, especially for undergraduates and those who are new to the field. It very much reflects the diversity and breadth of the topics and thinkers addressed in contemporary philosophy of religion. * Reading Religion *
