    Van Wagoner was a member of the board of Signature Books and was described after his death as a “trailblazer in Mormon studies”, having published historical articles in Utah Historical Quarterly, Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, and Sunstone. He lived in Lehi, Utah and acted as the town’s historical archivist. The notion that logic and sound reason are hostile to faith actually substitutes irrationality for genuine faith. Irrationality and discernment are polar opposites. When Paul prayed that the Philippians' love would "abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment" (Philippians ), he was affirming the rationality of true faith.

    This explanation of the Book of Exodus, the second book of the Bible, will demonstrate that the Bible is not only powerfully relevant to today's issues, but completely consistent with rational thought. The Rational Bible is the fruit of Dennis Prager's forty years of teaching the Bible to people of every faith, and no faith. Lewis Ricardo Gordon (born ) is an American philosopher at the University of Connecticut who works in the areas of Africana philosophy, existentialism, phenomenology, social and political theory, postcolonial thought, theories of race and racism, philosophies of liberation, aesthetics, philosophy of education, and philosophy of has written particularly extensively on.

    The Tensions Between Faith and History by trying to treat them as history when they were really written as books of faith. That it's the wrong approach to these texts. bringing a rational. Few books on faith-sharing lead you down a path of adventure then invite you to become a part of it. Hugh Ross does exactly this in Always Be Ready. Using personal stories, reflecting on Scripture, and sharing amazing “coincidences” in his life, Hugh brings together the thrills and challenges of sharing your faith.

[G E Michaelson] Book: All Authors / Contributors: G E Michaelson. Find more information about: ISBN: X OCLC Number: Description. The goal of the book Rational Faith by Stephen T Davis is to demonstrate that belief in Christianity is reasonable, and the book succeeds admirably.

One argument that the author gives is an argument from an objective moral law to an objective moral lawgiver, using genocide as a clear example of something objectively evil/5(8). Rational Faith book. Read 5 reviews from the world's largest community for readers.

Dallas Willard Center Book Award FinalistWhy believe in God. If /5. "In this book, Stephen Davis offers a clear and cogent case for the reasonableness of Christian faith. In a relatively short book, Davis manages to treat just about every issue that an honest person concerned about Christian faith might want to ask, ranging from reasons to believe in God and Jesus as God's Son to problems connected to science, religious diversity and uniqueness, and evil.

The faith of a Christian - but this applies more or less to other religions as well - has three dimensions: Rational - concerning, assumptions about ultimate Reality, to be believed on the basis of scriptural (or historical) narratives and philosophical (metaphysical) considerations; compare with axioms in eg mathematics that are assumed (in order to study their consequences), not proved.

Welcome to Dimensions of the Faith!. Dimensions of the Faith is a free online theological education program provided by Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

He has offered sufficient evidence for rational faith. The question is— Will we trust Him. Sean McDowell, Ph.D. is a professor of Christian Apologetics at Biola University, best-selling author, popular speaker, part-time high school teacher, and the Resident Scholar for Summit Ministries.

In this article I would like to show that faith has levels, thus, will elaborate the three main dimensions of faith. Believing when something happens. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.

Faith has been a part of religion, and explored by scholars from numerous disciplines (Hellwig, ). However, as Hiebert () points out, Fowler () departs from these conventional notions of faith and "equates faith with individual meaning systems" (p, ).

"Fowler describes the most generic and most profound process of being. First, it makes the book a compelling, fast read.

Second, it has the unfortunate consequence of glossing over some incredibly large ideas. As a result, almost more questions are created than answered here and "The Rational Faith" should almost be seen as a primer for a larger tome or even a discussion on the subjects s: 2.

This chapter provides an account of what it is to have faith in a proposition p, in both religious and mundane contexts.

It is argued that faith in p doesn’t require adopting a degree of belief that isn’t supported by one’s evidence but rather it requires terminating one’s search for further evidence and acting on the supposition that p.

It is then shown, by responding to a formal. This is rational faith, not based on emotions or feelings. It s precisely through this kind of faith that sincere people can take possession of the inheritance of Abraham.

In this book, you ll find examples taken from the Gospels that illustrate the differences between emotional faith and rational faith. And many in today's academic world find Christian belief untenable. But renowned philosopher Stephen Davis argues that belief in God is indeed a rational and intellectually sound endeavor.

Drawing on a lifetime of rigorous reflection and critical thinking, he explores perennial and contemporary challenges to Christian faith. Assumptions are kept to an absolute minimum. The order and dependencies of every argument are carefully laid out.

Taking guidance from physics, neuroscience, philosophy, history, scripture, and theology, this book systematically demonstrates the fundamental rationality of the Catholic faith.

For example, the creation story mentioned twice at the beginning of the bible, how to understand it chronologically when the bible doesn’t provide a clear answer/5(44).

Rational argument does not create belief, but it maintains a climate in which belief may flourish.” In these remarks I will seek to use rational argument, but I will not rely on any proofs.

I will approach the question of the historicity of the Book of Mormon from the standpoint of faith and revelation. The concept itself of blind faith is irrational, and therefore must be necessarily disqualified.

However, it is easy to reconcile Bible faith with rationality. Trust (Bible faith) is % rational. As sure as we can trust in anything else right in front of our eyes, we can have faith (trust) in what the Bible says.

Faith and rationality are two ideologies that exist in varying degrees of conflict or compatibility. Rationality is based on reason or facts. Faith is belief in inspiration, revelation, or word faith sometimes refers to a belief that is held with lack of reason or evidence, a belief that is held in spite of or against reason or evidence, or it can refer to belief based upon a.

I recently read Jesus: Uncovering the Life, Teachings, and Relevance of a Religious Revolutionary by the late Marcus Borg as part of my effort to learn more about “historical Jesus” book is Borg’s attempt to summarize the conclusions of this body of scholarship from the perspective of someone who is a faithful Christian, staying true to the assumptions of evidence.

We recognize that “faith” itself is a gift of God (EphesiansPhilippians ). We do not have the kind of faith that saves us by an exertion of our intellectual prowess; rather, while our faith is indeed eminently rational, it is given to us by God’s grace through faith.
