Alvin Plantinga is arguably one of the most influential philosophers of our time. Much of his career has been devoted to explaining and defending the intellectual acceptability of Christian belief. Recently he has developed a comprehensive, rigorous, and distinctively Christian religious epistemology. This book presents the development of Plantinga's religious epistemology before considering Plantinga's mature religious epistemology in detail. Locating Plantinga's most recent work in the context of his theological assumptions, his previous work on religious epistemology, and in the context of the current debate over how knowledge should be characterized, Beilby blends theological and philosophical discussion to offer a unique perspective on Plantinga's influential proposal. Contents: Preface. Part I The Development of Plantinga's Religious Epistemology: The background to Plantinga's religious epistemology; Plantinga's early religious epistemology; The warrant trilogy: Plantinga's current proposal. Part II An Evaluation of Plantinga's Religious Epistemology: Plantinga on the task of religious epistemology; Plantinga's theory of epistemic warrant; The extended a/c model and warranted Christian belief. Bibliography; Indexes.
