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.
