This book investigates what it means, and whether it is coherent, to say that there is a God. The author concludes that, despite philosophical objections, the claims which religious believers make about God are generally coherent; and that although some important claims are coherent only if the words by which they are expressed are being used in stretched or analogical senses, this is in fact the way in which theologians have usually claimed they are being used. This revised edition includes various minor corrections and clarifications.

Richard Swinburne is Nolloth Professor of the Philosophy of the Christian Religion, University of Oxford.Review:
`This volume, together with the author's "The Existence of God" ... and "Faith and Reason" ... are, in my opinion, the most impressive philosophical defence of traditional theism that has been offered in our generation. The author combines professional skill and scholarship worthy of the highest admiration with a facility for clear expression which makes what he has to say intelligible to any thoughtful reader.' Expository Times
`I know of no defence against contemporary philosophical criticism, that can compare with this one in quality of argumentation or clarity of thought.' Terence Penelhum, Journal of Philosophy
`The trilogy ... is, beyond all doubt, one of the most, if not the most, impressive single achievement in the philosophy of religion during the past decade.' W. D. Hudson, Religious Studies
'Richard Swinburne's revised edition is indeed a pleasure ... The revisions are not extensive, but make significant corrections to his treatment especially of omniscience, and of the unicity of God. It is also good to see that Clarendon Press have produced a relatively cheap paperback, for which students will certainly be grateful.' Gerard J. Hughes, Heythrop College, Heythrop Journal
