Philosophy of Religion. Norman L. Geisler, Professor of Philosophy of Religion at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, has written this book to argue for the truth of the proposition, God exists. In this proposition God refers to the God of the Judeo-Christian tradition. Geisler finds that the best proof for God’s existence is the cosmological argument as formulated by St. Thomas Aquinas. Geisler has written a book that is of value in comparing all of the arguments for God’s existence. The discussion is detailed and sometimes very tedious. There are very helpful indices included in the book, plus a fairly extensive bibliography.

He has taught at the university and graduate level for nearly forty years and has spoken or debated in all fifty states and in twenty-five countries. in philosophy from Loyola University and now serves as Chancellor of Veritas Evangelical Seminary, in Murrieta, CA.

However, Geisler takes it on, giving a clear explanation of the difference between the via negativa, univocal predication, and analogical prediction.

enjoyed reading it.

VALUE-EXPERIENCE + REVELATION & FAITH = RELIGION:
Brightman is the Hegel of American philosophy; actually the Aristotle & Hegel of American philosophy. Therefore if you are well-versed in Hegel, you will be able to enjoy Brightman’s work all the more.

He splits the manuscript into two parts: 1ST: a three-part phenomenology & 2ND the problems confronted by religion.
Pages 1-227 present a three-layered phenomenology consisting of Religion; Value; & Revelation. This prepares the reader for the remainder of the manuscript. By page 227; you should have a grasp of Brightman’s entire system consisting of the TRIAD:

I. THE EXPERIENCE OF VALUE
II. OBJECTIVE REVELATION & FAITH-RESPONSE
III. PHENOMENOLOGY OF RELIGION

This is not easy reading; but it is clearer than Hegel; Brightman is very good in defining his lexical content. Brightman, like Hegel is concerned about the “REAL”; which is the “Realm-Of-Positing”. From here; the “Eidos-ideals” must be verified through the dialectic of:

EXPERIMENTAL-POSITING & INTERPRETIVE-CONSTRUCTION

Then reaching the goal of “wholistic-coherence”. It requires some attentive study; but the reader will be truly blessed with the content presented here.
He relies heavily on Aristotle’s lexical-network & Hegel’s system; but adds his own significant and powerful take on Christianity as “LIVING-RELIGION”. A true masterpiece in scholarship.

If you are looking for solid apologetics from a philosophical angle, then this book is for you! Geisler as we all know is a well established scholar. The authors ability to use sound logic is quite impressive. Buy the book, you want be disappointed!

even though I didn't finish entire book (from cover to cover), it is a good resource in philosophy of religion from Christian Evangelical perspective.

It covers arguments for God's existence, religious experience, religious language...

Good text.

Norm Geisler has written quite a few books in his long and illustrious career. In my estimation, "Philosophy of Religion" is one of his best efforts, Among the topics covered are the traditional arguments for the existence of God, the nature and characteristics of religious experience, the problem of evil, and religious language. While I have a different take on some of these topics than does Geisler, most of what he has written is well-argued. His criticisms of positions with which he disagrees are well-reasoned and not mere straw man arguments.

Part 3, on "God and Language," is the section I found most interesting. He talks about negative and positive religious language and gives a clear explanation of the difference between the via negativa, univocal predication, and analogical prediction. For whatever reason a lot of philosophy of religion texts ignore this topic. Thankfully, Geisler covers it and provides a thoughtful discussion.

As is to be expected, Geisler does not cover every topic. He does not talk about the miraculous or the relation of religion to science or the matter of religious pluralism. However, he provides excellent analyses of the topics he does cover.

Norman Geisler has written many books. Most of them are good. "Philosophy of Religion" may be one of the best. Along with a reasonably comprehensive discussion of the standard arguments for the existence of God, Geisler has provided a detailed discussion of religious experience, the problem of evil, and religious language. While I do not find all of what Geisler writes to be persuasive, I will give him credit for presenting good arguments for his positions and avoiding attacking straw man misrepresentations of positions with which he disagrees. I personally found the third part of the book, "God and Language," to be the one that was most informative. Many philosophy of religion texts ignore this issue. However, Geisler takes it on, giving a clear explanation of the difference between the via negativa, univocal predication, and analogical prediction.

Among topics that I would have liked to see discussed but aren't are miracles, the relation of religion to science, and religious pluralism.
