This book contains the collected papers of Alan Donagan on topics in the philosophy of religion. Donagan was respected as a leading figure in American moral philosophy. His untimely death in 1991 prevented him from collecting his philosophical reflections on religion, particularly Christianity, and its relation to ethics and other concerns. This collection, therefore, constitutes the fullest expression of Donagan's thought on Christianity and ethics, in which it is possible to discern the outlines of a coherent, overarching theory. Editor Anthony Perovich has supplied a useful introduction, which brings Donagan's work into focus and brings out the unifying themes in the essays.

Review quote

Anthony Perovich has edited this collection of essays and lectures... It is lovingly done, and we get a touching sense of the disciple's gratitude to his master; also a strong sense that what we have here is work in progress, so that Donagan's ideas cry out to be taken on and developed by others. * Dr Saxby, Church Times 07/04/00. * His arguments are presented with suchsubtlety and erudition that they demand to be taken seriously. Those essays which deal specifically with the relation between religion and morality, theology and ethics should be required reading not only for all who are engaged in the study of theology but also all who are trying to make sense of their religious beliefs in a complex world. Many of the essays in this book, published posthumously and edited by Anthony N Perovich, a
former pupil, have appeared before - either in journals or anthologies; but gathered together in a single volume they form an impressive testimony to the range and depth of his thinking... Every essay is intellectually demanding, but every essay will also cause the reader to pause and think again
about his or her own beliefs and assumptions. * Brian Horne. The Expository Times. April 2000. *
