As many of you know, I’m the philosophy of religion area editor for the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy.  I’m always on the lookout for more articles in this area.  A list of desired articles can be found here

As the IEP’s coverage expands to include most of the major issues in the field, I thought it would be good to begin a series of articles on influential contemporary philosophers of religion.  I’m thinking of (though certainly not thinking only of):

  • Adams, Marilyn
  • Adams, Robert
  • Alston, William
  • Flew, Anthony
  • Hasker, William
  • Hick, John
  • “New Atheism,” the (Dennett, Dawkins, etc…)
  • Plantinga, Al
  • Rowe, WIlliam
  • Swinburne, Richard
  • van Inwagen, Peter
  • Wolterstorff, Nick

Given the overlap with existing IEP entries, most of these would likely be fairly short (approximately 4,000 words).  If interested in contributing such an entry, please feel free to send me an email.  Since all IEP articles are blind reviewed, contributing is also a good way to add to one’s cv (as many Prosblogion contributors have already done or are in the process of doing).

    I would add Bill Craig to the list.
