Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume provides an explanation and defense of a view of faith and reason found in the writings of Soren Kierkegaard and others that is often called fideism. Carefully distinguishing indefensible forms of fideism that involve a rejection of reason from responsible forms of fideism that require reason to become self-critical, C. Stephen Evans unfolds a Kierkegaardian view that genuine religious knowledge is grounded in faith beyond reason. Three versions of responsible fideism are discussed and analyzed. Evans's discussion is deepened by concrete examples of how fideists might view three traditional topics in philosophy of religion: the knowledge of God's existence, the problem of evil, and the verifiability of divine revelation.
