An introduction to the philosophy of religion. The book explores different ideas of God - from the timeless and spaceless God of Catholic theology to revisionist modern accounts.

It all used to be simple. Some people believed in God and others did not. Today the issues are more complex and it is no longer clear what it means to claim that God exists.
'The Puzzle of God' takes a distinctive approach. It examines the different ideas of God in common use today – from the timeless and spaceless God of Catholic theology, and the predominantly Protestant idea of an everlasting God, to the modern revisionary accounts. It then applies these to central areas of belief such as eternal life, prayer, miracles and talk of God's love, omnipotence and omniscience.
As an ideal introduction to the Philosophy of Religion, Peter Vardy's book has already had a major impact. Easy to read and accessible, it does not presume specialist knowledge or impose any one view. This second edition also includes a new and significant postscript.
"This is about the best elementary textbook in the philosophy of God I have come across… an extremely useful book."
"A lucid and challenging exposition."
John McDade SJ ('Editor, The Month')
"An accomplished guide round the battlefield of ideas about God."
