Synopsis: Lived faith involves more than doctrines, evidences and rational coherence. In this book philosopher Clifford Williams puts forth an argument as to why certain needs, desires and emotions have a legitimate place in drawing people into faith in God. Addressing the strongest objections to these types of reasons, he shows how the personal and experiential aspects of belief play an important part in coming to faith and in remaining a believing person. These existential elements are neither irrelevant to belief nor do they undermine the legitimacy of a reasoned faith, as critics often charge--and Williams shows why. Here is a much needed complement to evidential approaches to apologetics.

About the Author: Clifford Williams (Ph.D., Indiana University) teaches philosophy at Trinity College (T.I.U.) in Deerfield, Illinois. He is the author of a number of books, including Singleness of Heart: Restoring the Divided Soul; Free Will and Determinism: A Dialogue; The Divided Soul: A Kierkegaardian Exploration; The Wisdom of Kierkegaard: A Collection of Quotations on Faith and Life and The Life of the Mind: A Christian Perspective.
