Classical and contemporary readings in the philosophy of religion by John Hick( Book )

23 editions published between 1964 and 1990 in English and held by 1,317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is designed primarily for use in courses in philosophy of religion. Because such courses are sometimes arranged historically and sometimes in terms of topics or problems the material is presented here in two different tables of contents adapted to these two uses. The readings themselves are printed in chronological sequence, mainly in order that discussions by the same writer of different but related topics may conveniently be studied together- for example, Kant's critique of the three traditional theistic proofs

The Myth of God incarnate by John Hick( Book )

24 editions published between 1933 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many people, the incarnation of God in Jesus Christ is the essence of Christianity. Without the incarnation, Christianity would be something else. Yet this assumption is open to a great many questions, and in one of the most exciting and provocative collections of studies to appear for a long time, a group of theologians asks whether the idea of the incarnate God is not another of those Patristic doctrines which need to be criticized and interpreted afresh in the modern world. The prospect may sound sensational and destructive, but this volume has neither characteristic. It has been produced by distinguised scholars, who examine the evidence from the New Testament onwards with care and thoroughness. And as they ask their questions, they are at the same time concerned with the consequences of their findings for a full and living Christian faith today. Their work is something that no thinking Christian can ignore

The new frontier of religion and science : religious experience, neuroscience and the transcendent by John Hick( Book )

22 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If you take for granted the widespread assumption of our culture that matter constitutes the totality of reality, this book will challenge that assumption. The pervasive materialist or physicalist presupposition of so much thinking is not scientifically established but is a basic article of naturalistic faith. Professor Hick argues that the widely held belief that consciousness is identical with or a by-product of the functioning of the brain is unsustainable. There is non-physical as well as physical reality. It is entirely possible that there is a divine realm transcending the material universe but encountered in religious experience. He looks carefully at the epistemological implications of this. But Hick also challenges many traditional religious beliefs. He distinguishes between religion as human institutions, which have done as much harm as good in the world, and religion as the inner spiritual response to the Transcendent. Whereas institutional religion has divided humanity, spiritual or mystical experience can unite people of every part of the world. -- Publisher description
