This candid exploration of belief transcends arguments between atheists and people of faith to show that it is our nature to believe and that the key to understanding our reason for being is not what we believe about but believe in. Kennedy, a renowned psychologist and person of faith, demonstrates that sincere seeking and believing are one, and that authentic faith comes from getting at the truth of what we believe in ourselves. He applies these principles to his own life and that of others, and shares his Christian beliefs in words that make sense for seekers of all faiths and none. The result is a grounded, original formulation of religious faith for those who doubt and those who want to better understand their own spiritual tradition. The reader finishes the book with a sense of assurance, understanding, and desire to keep on learning.
