"Anyone desiring a concise yet rigorous and substantive review of most of the important work that has been done in analytic philosophy of religion during the past half century will want to consult this new Ebook by Steven Duncan. It is so well-written that it should prove valuable both to the professional philosopher seeking to review the latest developments in the field as well as to the student of philosophy seeking entry into one the most exciting and vibrant areas of contemporary philosophical research. Moreover, as someone whose area of specialization is philosophy of religion, I came away with a deepened understanding on a number of key issues. This is a wonderful book!" Professor Paul Herrick, Shoreline Community College (Author, The Many Worlds of Logic, Oxford University Press)
