Epistemology is central to any discussion of the philosophy of religion; beliefs concerning the nature and scope of knowledge, its presuppositions and basis, and the general reliability of claims to knowledge in large part determine results on particular philosophical topics in religion. This anthology brings together twenty-eight key papers representative of the leading movements in religious epistemology today. Six approaches are discussed: the atheistic challenge is set out first, followed by five responses to it: Wittgensteinian fideism, reformed epistemology, natural theology, prudential accounts of religious beliefs, and rational belief based in religious experience. Contributors: Flew, Rowe, Martin, Shalkowski, Phillips, Malcolm, Holmer, Nielsen, Plantinga, Wolsterstorff, Pargetter, Goetz, Craig, Swinburne, Willard, Adams, Cahn, Morris, Lycan, Schlesinger, Cargile, Alston, Hick, Kellenberger, and Proudfoot.
