Realism and Religion

This book draws together a distinguished group of philosophers and theologians to present new thinking on realism and religion. The religious realism/antirealism debate concerns the questions of God's independence from human beings, the nature of religious truth and our access to religious truths. Although both philosophers and theologians have written on these subjects, there has been little sustained investigation into these issues akin to that found in comparable areas of research such as ethics or the philosophy of science.
The contributors present a variety of contrasting positions on key issues in the religious realism debate. This volume of original essays will both introduce newcomers to the field and suggest new lines of research for those already familiar with it.
