Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
In this classic work, prominent religious philosopher John Hick presents a global interpretation of religion, arguing for a religious response to our ambiguous universe and showing how the world’s different religions are culturally conditioned forms of that response. For this Second Edition, Hick addresses the major critics of his interpretation of religion, thereby enabling fresh discussion of his work.

Praise for the first edition:

“This book strengthens Hick’s position as one of the most significant thinkers of the second half of the twentieth century. . . . I highly recommend [it] to students of philosophy, history of religions, and comparative studies, as well as theology.”―Chester Gillis, Journal of Religion

“The most persuasive philosophical advocacy for religious pluralism ever written."―Yandall Woodfin, Southwestern Journal of Theology

“[This work] evinces Hick’s many virtues: ingenuity; fairness toward all arguments; deference to the standards of analytic philosophy; familiarity with Eastern as well as Western religions; and, not least, a clean, clear prose.”―Robert A. Segal, Christian Century

“A leader in interfaith interpretation of religion, Hick has written what will probably become a classic. . . . Clear, readable, and comprehensive.”―Library Journal

“Should be read by the adherents of all faiths.”―Rabbi Dan Cohn-Sherbok
