Evil and the God of Love by John Hick( Book )

99 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in English and held by 1,856 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Death and eternal life by John Hick( Book )

44 editions published between 1900 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this cross-cultural, interdisciplinary study, John Hick draws upon major world religions, as well as biology, psychology, parapsychology, anthropology, and philosophy, to explore the mystery of death. He argues that scientific and philosophical objections to the idea of survival after death can be challenged, and he claims that human inadequacy in facing suffering supports the basic religious argument for immortality."--Publisher description
Faith and knowledge by John Hick( Book )

72 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this revision of his widely read study, John Hick has taken advantage of constructive comments on the first edition to make the book more useful. New material has been added and the overall structure of the volume has been changed to strengthen it both as an introduction to the problem of religious knowledge and as an exposition of the view of faith that seems to him most adequate. There is a new chapter on the Thomist-Catholic view of faith; a new treatment of the controversial notion of eschatological verification, taking account of various published critiques of the concept; and a new section on the way in which the Christian faith-awareness of God expresses itself in a distinctive way of life
An interpretation of religion : human responses to the transcendent by John Hick( Book )

56 editions published between 1898 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses traditional and recent arguments for and against the existence of God, the religious ambiguity of the universe, the question of transcendence and the basis for rational religious belief
Classical and contemporary readings in the philosophy of religion by John Hick( Book )

27 editions published between 1964 and 1990 in English and held by 1,325 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
Three faiths--one God : a Jewish, Christian, Muslim encounter by John Hick( Book )

29 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The interactions of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim communities through the centuries have often been hostile and sometimes violent. Today a new 'trialogue' between them is developing in several parts of the world. One of the most ambitious ventures so far of this kind took place recently in California and produced this set of exploratory papers and responses. The subjects are the concepts of God in the three traditions, their attitudes to the material world, and their understandings of human life and history. The discussions were frank and realistic but at the same time hopeful
The existence of God by John Hick( Book )

49 editions published between 1964 and 1995 in English and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principal philosophical arguments on the existence of God are brought together here. From the ancient Greeks and Anselm to the present-day and Bertrand Russell, both sides are represented. First come the contributions of Western philosophers to the five arguments traditionally used to prove that God exists; then come the basic challenges to the them; and finally the recent writings that proble what it means to assert that God exists
The Myth of God incarnate by John Hick( Book )

28 editions published between 1933 and 2003 in English and held by 1,162 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

27 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in English and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Hick begins by addressing the most fundamental questions: whether religion is a wish-fulfilling projection or a human response to the Transcendent, and whether religious experiences constitute authentic awareness of a divine Reality
The many-faced argument : recent studies on the ontological argument for the existence of God by John Hick( Book )

27 editions published between 1967 and 2009 in English and French and held by 961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Many-Faced Argument presents a compilation of essays on the ontogical argument for the existence of God, covering responses to Anselm's position in the first half, and, in the second half, covering developments of the argument in the context of modern philosophy. Along with contibutions by editors Hick and McGill, other writers include Karl Barth, Andre Hayden, Anselm Stolz, Bertrand Russell, Jerome Shaffer, Gilbert Ryle, Aime Forest, Norman Malcolm, and Charles Hartshorne. While interest in the the ontological argument has arisen from various disciplines -- historical, theological and philosophical -- the purpose of this book is to bring these varied writings together so that scholars and students within each discipline may have contributions from other fields readily available

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

24 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 685 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This response to the new challenge of neuroscience to religion takes account of eastern as well as western forms of religious experience. Hick challenges the prevailing naturalistic assumption of our culture, including the idea that the mind is either identical with or a temporary by-product of brain activity. It also discusses religion as institutions and religion as inner experience of the Transcendent, and suggests a form of spirituality for today. From publisher description
