This is not Mr. Loftus' first book. When I read his writing for the first time, the logic and thoroughness with which he covered the topic made me think there was nothing more for him to do. When I read his second book, I was amazed how well presented and fresh ideas that I thought - for sure there is nothing more for him to write about... before reading this book, I was a bit apprehensive thinking lightning can't strike so many times, but again I was mistaken in my presumptions. The author is uniquely positioned because not only has he studied and obtained degrees in the very subject he proposes to eliminate from secular university, but he has lived it, taught the subject, and spent lots of time promulgating it with some of the best and most famous philosophy of religion "experts". Loftus dissects the issues exposing this subject, which has only existed since the 1950's, as nothing more than either plain philosophy or, more often, plain apologetic. This book is easy to read and, in its appendices, it has some excellent interviews with the defenders of the Philosophy of Religion. He presents his arguments and the PoR most famous counterarguments allowing the reader to come to the logical and inevitable conclusion that PoR shouldn't exist any more. A highly recommended book for anyone thinking in studying PoR.
I'm in complete agreement with Mr. Lofts and I recommend this book and its advice to all philosophy of religion departments at secular universities.
