The problems posed by the Deists and their opponents are still very much alive today, as is the issue of the relation of the Christian faith to other religions. This volume deals with the manifestations of the controversy over deism in England, where it arose as a distinctive part of the social and intellectual atmosphere. of the time. Included here in compact form are major contributions to the debate, starting with John Toland's 'Christianity Not Mysterious' and the reply to that position by Peter Browne. Works by Locke, the literary source of the main British development, and by Berkeley, Butler, and Hume are not represented as they are available elsewhere. Professor Waring's aim, as expounded in his informative introduction, has been to give the reader an overall picture of the key ideas of the controversy and their development, often in the form of debate, in works not readily accessible to the student or general reader. Texts have been somewhat modernized in spelling and punctuation for clearer understanding, and each selection is preceded by an editorial note placing it in the context of the developing movement."; 276 pages.
