This volume makes a substantial contribution to the field of religious studies. It includes dialogical exchanges between leading philosophers of religion and philosophical theologians who debate central questions concerning the nature of God, traditional theism, metaphysics, and the grammar of 'the world'.
This volume brings together both young and mature philosophers from the analytic and process traditions to dialogue on central questions in the areas of metaphysics, philosophy of religion, philosophical theology, and philosophy of language. The papers not only fill a massive gap in the intersections of interest between analytic and process scholars of religion but also demonstrate beyond any doubt that two traditions of process and analysis are integral to current philosophical movements and debates. The main questions discussed here include the nature of 'good' metaphysics, the application of modal discourse to the understanding of God's reality, God's epistemic nature, and the grammar of 'the world'.
