Confronting the Predicament of Belief

Additional Contributors: James Walters and Steven Knapp


Instead of suppressing doubts about religious claims, what if we engage them head-on? Imagine theologians who welcome the uncomfortable questions rather than immunizing their proposals from criticisms. What happens when discussions of the deepest issues-God and science, faith and doubt, suffering and evil, death and resurrection-are guided by the real-life challenges of believing and living in today's world? The probing queries and constructive replies published here for the first time invite you into the living experience of doubt and faith, the spiritual quest of our age. They invite readers to consider not only what they believe, but also how they hold their beliefs . . . and what they do with them in everyday life.
