About the Author

Fiona Ellis is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Roehampton and Director of the Centre for Philosophy of Religion at Heythrop College, University of London. She has published on a wide variety of subjects including the philosophy of love and desire, nature and naturalism, and the relation between philosophy and theology. She is the author of God, Value, and Nature (Oxford University Press, 2014).


The book, in my view, achieves its aim, and is an excellent starting point for one who is interested in all the rich diversity that philosophy of religion has to offer. * Rory Lawrence Phillips, University College London, Religious Studies Review *
[a] multi-faceted symposium * Neil Spurway, ESSSAT News & Reviews *
