Nothing new - Collins collected essays from a multitude of old and modern thinkers; but I like his approach to modern issues of faith, so I think I'll enjoy the ride.
  2wonderY | Sep 15, 2011 |
A collection of passages from a range of authors in regards to many of the questions that come in terms of faith-- faith as reasonable, demonstrations of God's existence, how God can allow suffering, the irrationality of unbelief, and other such themes. Collected authors range from Plato and Augustine to Keller and Plantinga.

A useful collection if you do not already own the "original" books from whence the passages come. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061787345, Hardcover)

"Is there a God?" is the most central and profound question that humans ask. With the New Atheists gaining a loud voice in today's world, it is time to revisit the long-standing intellectual tradition on the side of faith. Francis Collins, New York Times bestselling author of The Language of God and renowned physician and geneticist, defends the reason for faith in this provocative collection. Collins is our guide as he takes us through the writings of many of the world's greatest thinkers -- philosophers, preachers, poets, scientists -- both past and present, including such luminaries as C. S. Lewis and Augustine, and unexpected voices such as John Locke and Dorothy Sayers. Despite the doubts of a cynical world, this essential companion proves once and for all the rationality of faith.

"In the twenty-first century, many seem to have concluded that the spiritual experience and the life of the mind ought to occupy separate domains, and that disruptions, conflicts, and disenchantments will result if the firewall comes down. Surely humanity's ongoing search for truth is not enriched by such limitations. In the words of Socrates, the key to a fully mature and richly rewarding life, both for us as individuals and as a society, is to -follow the argument wherever it leads,' unafraid of the consequences. If this collection of essays provides even a small encouragement in this direction for the seeker, the believer, or the skeptic, that will be gratifying indeed." -- from the Introduction
