New Survey/Overview Article on the Problem of Religious Diversity

Dastmalchian, Amir. "The Epistemology of Religious Diversity in Contemporary Philosophy of Religion", Philosophy Compass 8:3 (Feb 2013), 298-308.

Abstract: Religious diversity is a key topic in contemporary philosophy of religion. One way religious diversity has been of interest to philosophers is in the epistemological questions it gives rise to. In other words, religious diversity has been seen to pose a challenge for religious belief. In this study four approaches to dealing with this challenge are discussed. These approaches correspond to four well-known philosophers of religion, namely, Richard Swinburne, Alvin Plantinga, William Alston, and John Hick. The study is concluded by suggesting four factors which shape one’s response to the challenge religious diversity poses to religious belief.

And if it should find its way into my inbox, I wouldn't mind in the least.

UPDATE: thanks!
