Philosophy and the Christian Worldview : Analysis, Assessment and Development


Philosophy and the Christian Worldview : Analysis, Assessment and Development



Edited by Keith E. Yandell, David Werther, Mark Linville.

Includes a chapter co-authored by College at Brockport faculty member Gordon Barnes: Internalism and properly basic belief.

A collection of new essays written by fifteen philosophers of religion. Bringing together some of the leading lights in current academic philosophy of religion, including William Hasker, Charles Taliaferro and Keith Yandell, it offers a fresh perspective on four major areas of discussion: Religion and Epistemology; Religion and Morality; Religion and Metaphysics; and Religion and Worldview Assessment. United by the argument that the core claims of religion have metaphysical, epistemic and moral entailments, these essays represent a state of the art discussion in contemporary philosophy of religion.
