Peter Vardy s much acclaimed introduction to the study of ideas about God now revised and updatedA clear, well written guide to philosophical thinking about God Starting with the question of what it means to say we believe in God, and looking at the nature of truth, Peter Vardy goes on to examine ideas about God and their influence on Christian thinkingPeter Vardy takes the reader through the arguments, using amusing illustrations and analogies He writes for the lay person or student, not assuming any specialist knowledge, and not imposing any particular view This is about the best elementary textbook in the philosophy of God I have come across an extremely useful book Hugh Meynell, The Tablet This is a masterpiece of coherence Step by step the reader is led clearly and humorously through the philosophical maze which confuses our thinking about God Linda Smith, Head of Religious Education, King s College, London

    Good as an overview for A level students studying the OCR or AQA spec not sure about the other boards , though may lack some of the specifics needed to achieve a top grade An excellent resource to stretch gifted and talented Y10 11 GCSE RE students
