Paul Helm investigates what religious faith is and what makes it reasonable. While religious beliefs need to stand up to philosophical scrutiny just like other beliefs, religious epistemology must respect the distinctiveness of their subject-matter. Helm argues that the reasonableness of faith depends not only on beliefs about the world but also on beliefs about oneself and on what one is willing to trust.

About the Author:

Paul Helm is Professor of the History and Philosophy of Religion at King's College London.

Review:

`Faith with Reason is an excellent book, especially unique and recommendable because of the balanced way in which both the cognitive and the non-cognitive elements playing a role in religious belief and its justification are treated.'
Ars Disputandi (online journal Netherlands)

`Issues concerning the relation between faith and reason seem to be rather well-worn during centuries of theological and philosophical inquiry. In his new book, however, Paul Helm succeeds in giving a remarkably fresh ring to some of them'
Ars Disputandi (online journal Netherlands)

`yet another welcome contribution to one of the liveliest debates in contemporary philosophy of religion ... The style is simple, lucid and well-ordered. The arguments are persuasive, the criticisms of other veiws perceptive and fair ... This book will commend itself to many different kinds
of readers. Students will find it easily accessible, refreshingly free of jargon and unnecessary technicalities, well focused on the key issues. Professional philosophers in the field will find in it original arguments, and a freshness of approach to some well-worn issues.'
Gerard J.Hughes SJ, Religious Studies, Vol. 37, 2001

`Helm's exploration of the role of one's moral standing when it comes to questions of belief and reasonableness is, particuarly successful.'
Brian Davies, TLS

`contains a lot of sophisticated, intelligent, and subtle guidance around the subject.'
Brian Davies, TLS

`There is much that is admirably stimulating in these chapters.'
John A Harrod, The Expository Times, Nov.00.

`Helm is one of the most articulate and sensible of contemporary philosophers of religion, and writes clearly and without pretension.'
Hugo Meynell. The Heythrop Journal Vol 42 no 3.

Book Description Condition: New. Clarendon Press, 2000. 202p. Hardback. Helm argues convincingly for distinguishing between the involuntariness of specific beliefs and the involuntary nature of broader patterns of belief. Helm is as trenchant in his critique of Barth's view of the unconditionality of faith as he is in his critique of evidentialist philosophies of religion. Douglas Hedley, The Journal of Theological Studies October 2005 (Publisher's information). Condition: New Print on Demand. Printed on Demand. Seller Inventory # 36558
