A modern take on this age-old branch of philosophy.
Isaac Asimov said that "whatever the tortures of hell, I think the boredom of heaven would be even worse." Such quandaries are the bread and butter of philosophy of religion. Questioning why evil exists, whether God could create a stone he couldn't lift, and if the wonder of life suggests a Creator, this fascinating branch of philosophy is concerned with arguments for and against religion, and what form an immortal god (or gods) would take if in existence.
Charles Taliaferro provides a clear exploration of the discipline, introducing a wide range of philosophers and covering the topics of morality and religion, evil, the afterlife, prayer, and miracles.
This audiobook introduces listeners to the broad field of philosophy of religion. Narrator Deidre Rubenstein's warm, truly beautiful voice adds a calm serenity to the listening experience. Although this is an introduction to the subject, it is an 18-hour one - there's no shortage of fascinating subject material. Charles Taliaferro expertly moves from a grounding of basic religious subjects - heaven, hell, good, evil, god, miracles, and prayer - to give listeners a sense of the range of relevant philosophers and their interests. This generous audio is a great jumping-off point for those with questions about religion, its origin, and application.
