Emphasizing shifting views of faith and the nature of evidence, Charles Taliaferro has written a dynamic narrative history of philosophical reflection on religion from the seventeenth century to the present. Beginning with the movement of Cambridge Platonism, which formed a bridge between the ancient and medieval worlds and early modern philosophy, his book provides an overview of different movements in philosophy, as well as detailed analysis and reflection on key arguments.
