The book is fine but it's not the most recent (2009) edition. There is a lot of new material in the 2nd edition including an excellent section on the foreknowledge of God and how it relates to human freedom and also much new material on the problem of evil. It would be good if Christian Book let you know that there are newer editions of their bargain books. Lesson to be learned: Don't buy a bargain book until you check amazon.com to see if there are later editions. That said, it is a very good book dealing with many important topics. If you are happy with this older edition, it's a good buy.

A very rich and insightful book on the subject of the Philosophy or religion. Written in everyday language, this book will give you solid information on the subject. Can be useful for a college student in an introductory philosophy class, or a more seasoned reader looking to expand his or her knowledge in the area of philosophy.

One of the best philosophy of religion books I've ever read. Goes into depth on misc subjects but is still very readable and doesn't pontificate. I highly recommend it!
