In this article we intend to find out the main basis and features of analytical philosophy of religion, an approach raised by religious analytical philosophers against the movement of atheism and agnosticism in the second half of the twentieth century. This article mainly moves toward proving three features for this approach: 1. Trying to reach maximum clarity in language and endorsing common sense instead of logical atomism. 2. Paying attention to the achievements of new empirical sciences and validating the value of religious experience instead of logical positivism. 3. Trying to examine religious statements rationally and offering a criterion for their truth and falsity. As a result, the main challenging grounds of philosophy of religion and the parts of analytic philosophy used in philosophy of religion will be detected.
