He alsoengages some prominent contemporary philosophers and theologianswho clarify the nature of faith by developing and contrasting itwith ideas from other thinkers on shared topics of reflection. Thebook goes on to reflect on the themes of integrity, and theologicaland ethical perspectives of 'life'. The final section returns tothe theme of 'religious humanism' with discussions of importantrecent work on Christian humanism.
