"Taliaferro and Marty have brought together a fine team of scholars to produce an up-to-date, concise philosophy of religion dictionary that will ably serve both the novice and the scholar. Besides the accessible, succinct entries, the dictionary contains certain bonus features: excellent introductory material, a useful philosophical/historical timeline, and an extensive bibliography for further reading. A terrific resource!" - Paul Copan, Professor and Pledger Family Chair of Philosophy and Ethics, Palm Beach Atlantic University, USA, and co-editor of the Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Religion."
