Promotional Information

This book addresses fundamental questions in the philosophy of religion.


'Yandell's main premise is that religious beliefs and doctrines are not exempt from critical examination by analytical philosopher; rather, they should receive the same degree of critical examination which secular beliefs and doctrines attract. The intricate thread of his argument testifies to the validity of this core premise ... deserves to be read by anyone interested in the analysis of religious experience.' Victoria S. Harrison, Heythrop Journal
