Best Philosophy of Religion Books of the Decade

by Luke Muehlhauser on February 2, 2010 in Resources

Earlier, I gave my list of the Best Atheism Books of the Decade. Now, the writers and readers of Prosblogion have given their own list of Best Philosophy of Religion Books of the Decade, in the comments here. I added up all the approving mentions, and here is the resulting list:

  1. Alvin Plantinga, Warranted Christian Belief
  2. Jordan Howard Sobel, Logic and Theism

and in no particular order:

I’m curious. Does this make you want to revise your opinion of reformed epistemology as dumbest idea of the century?

Being aware that you didn’t address this question to me, I’ll keep my answer brief: Absolutely not.

Thanks Jake.

But don’t you think that if professional philosophers think a book has been very important and worth engaging with, then amateurs should hesitate from saying that the ideas in that book are the dumbest of the century.

In this situation perhaps you should think hard about whether or not you properly understand what Plantinga is saying.

One gives credit to Craig and Plantinga for their farragoes of nonsense as one does to schizophreniacs for their detailed rationalizations of paranoia!
Craig stupidly defends the Resurrection when we don’t even know who said so and how reliable and no forth! What gulliblity!
Dawkins, by the way, knows theology and debates theologians, those defenders of that square circle of which we ignostics ever note.

The sad thing is, I’m an atheist, I don’t need to read any of these books.

“I’m an atheist, I don’t need to read any of these books.”
Well, I figured it, that atheists dont read nothing else besides their own magical books, based in the sacred and little intellectual quality books of atheists like Dawkins, Dennet, Harris or Hitchens. It´s good to know that when one debates atheists their arguments will lack of the knowledge and reasoning used for some one of the bests Theists. Therefore, their or ur argument will be partial and closed, blinded for the Lack of understanding and reasoning. You will be making us easier to defeat you almost effortless.
