"Well packaged and amply supported with solid philosophical frames around all the key issues, Michael Palmer's Philosophy of Religion provides for a thoroughly enlightening semester's worth of musing on the ultimate questions that are the backbone of religion. Palmer provides an ideal blend of spiritual vision tempered by a philosopher's breadth of scholarly wisdom."
—Daniel Kolak
Professor of Philosophy
William Paterson University of New Jersey


"Michael Palmer's Philosophy of Religion is a superb collection of readings on virtually all aspects of philosophy of religion. It is also much more than that. Palmer's introductions to each topic delineate the specific issues in which the debates rest. His biographical and historical introductions to each essay, together with his study questions and extensive bibliographies, focus student attention on the most salient issues and show how the essay frames or extends the discussion. For the student, it is an eminently readable introduction to the philosophy of religion that carries one deeply into the issues. For the scholar, it is a convenient gathering of many of the principal discussions together with reminders of others that must not be overlooked."
—Daniel E. Flage
Professor of Philosophy
James Madison University

"Michael Palmer's impressive anthology examines the philosophy of religion with admirable depth and clarity. The selection of authors, text, and subjects is skillfully done, and the explanatory notes could not be more illuminating. This text will certainly make an excellent foundation and resource for any study of the subject. Highly recommended!"
—John J. Ross
