The analogy of religion natural and revealed, to the constitution and course of nature. To which are added two brief dissertations: I. Of personal identity. II. Of the nature of virtue. By Joseph Butler by Joseph Butler ( )
10 editions published in 1793 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It is come, I know not how, to be taken for granted, by many persons, that Christianity is not so much as a Subject of Inquiry; but that it is, now at length, discovered to be fictitious. And accordingly they treat it, as if, in the present age, this were an agreed point, among all people of discernment; and nothing remained, but to set it up as a principal subject of mirth and ridicule, as it were by way of reprisals, for its having so long interrupted the pleasures of the world. On the contrary, thus much, at least, will be here found, not taken for granted, but proved, that any reasonable man, who will thoroughly consider the matter, may be as much assured, as he is of his own being, that it is not, however, so clear a case, that there is nothing in it. There is, rather, strong evidence of its truth; but it is certain no one can, upon principles of reason, be satisfied of the contrary. In simple terms, this treatise will explore the analogy of religion, natural and revealed, to the constitution and course of nature. Additionally, two brief dissertations are included, which address the notion of personal identity and the nature of virtue"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)

Dialogues concerning natural religion by David Hume ( )
7 editions published between 1782 and 2005 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"David Hume's Dialogues concerning Natural Religion, first published in 1779, is one of the most influential works in the philosophy of religion and the most artful instance of philosophical dialogue since the dialogues of Plato. It presents a fictional conversation between a skeptic, an orthodox Christian, and a Newtonian theist concerning evidence for the existence of an intelligent cause of nature based on observable features of the world. This new edition presents it together with several of Hume's other, shorter writings about religion, and with brief selections from the work of Pierre Bayle, who influenced both Hume's views on religion and the dialectical style of the Dialogues. The volume is completed by an introduction which sets the Dialogues in its philosophical and historical contexts."--BOOK JACKET
