This is a unique piece of work: A work that analyses religion on its own terms, using philosophy to explain the strengths and weaknesses of each general argument without trying to spoon feed you what to accept and what to reject. Listen, think and make your own conclusion.

Professor Hall' has created a series that gently and steadily equips the student to critically assess not only arguments in favour or against the existence of God, but also to challenge their own personal faith with the tools of philosophical analysis. He shows how faith is a choice one can make rationally.

A difficult subject well explained, the professor covers a lot of ground and is even handed in his treatment of the subject matter. Most of the chapters are very interesting although the latter chapters about stories did not seem so interesting or critical to the subject . Well narrated.
Where does Philosophy of Religion rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Religions and their various aspects are an area of interest for me. The fact it is actually a lecture given by an academic, not just an audiobook, makes it even more attractive to me. It feels more authentic and at certain points I felt like sitting in a lecture hall listening.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Philosophy of Religion?
It is hard to say. There are many interesting points throughout all the book. It is a lecture, not a movie.
Have you listened to any of Professor James Hall’s other performances? How does this one compare?
It has been my first and so far only encounter with Professor Hall. One of the reasons I did purchase this book was the fact his voice felt well comprehensible and comfortable to listen.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Not a film, but perhaps a documentary. Tag line? "Anything you ever wanted to know about Philosophy of Religion but were afraid to ask." ;-)
Any additional comments?
A book for anybody who wishes to educate her/himself.
