This text provides a comprehensive treatment of the central topics in the contemporary philosophy of religion from a Thomist point of view. After an overview of Thomism in the 20th century, the remaining chapters treat the relationship between religious claims and other truth claims, religious language (especially analogy), theology and science, suffering and evil, religion and morality, human nature and destiny, God, and religious pluralism. The aim is to provide the reader with an overview of the spectrum of Thomist positions, beginning with Aquinas himself and then moving through his most important interpreters. By cross-referencing related topics, the book situates particular problems within the larger context of Thomism. Ample bibliographical references direct the reader to the most important resources.
