Forthcoming Book on Challenges to Moral and Religious Belief

A while back, we noted an important conference at Purdue -- organized by Michael Bergmann and Patrick Kain -- on the challenges of disagreement and evolution to moral and religious beliefs. It looks as though many of the papers will be polished further and published in a collection:
