BELIEF IN AN AGE OF SCEPTICISM
By Timothy Keller
This book is not new, but it is one which belongs in the Reviews section of this site. The author begins by showing that whether we accept or reject the idea of God, we make a leap – whether it is a “leap of faith” or a “leap of doubt,” we choose between two possibilities in an alternate set of beliefs.
As Keller maintains, we really can only make a choice as to which account of the world has the most “explanatory power” for us personally to make sense of what we see in the world and in ourselves. To presume that logic or faith alone somehow proves one choice over the other can be an error which is belied by the number of intelligent individuals who have chosen each kind of "leap." This is an excellent book on the nature of belief which will repay the time spent with it. You can read our short review here.
