Review of Liberal Faith: Essays in Honor of Phillip Quinn

Ted Poston (University of South Alabama) reviews the book for NDPR, here.

Good ol' Phillip Quinn. He was a truly honest Christian. If only more Christians read him. It's still instructive to read his hard-hitting (and in my view, successful) critiques of Plantinga's earlier, internalist version of reformed epistemology in his exchanges with Plantinga in the mid-80s and early 90s.[1] Indeed, many of his criticisms apply to Plantinga's current, externalist stuff. I've always found it curious that the Plantinga-Quinn exchanges aren't more widely anthologized. Strange.
