How does a believer articulate (and thus defend) his or her faith? While much innovative and important work in the philosophy of religion has been done on 'faith seeking understanding' this is the first modern treatment in book form. Paul Helm closely examines the stance, 'faith seeking understanding', looking at examples of philosophical work on one or other article of the Christian faith, or on some crucial underpinning of it. He discusses the various ways in which the stance has been understood through the ages and relates this understanding to individual case studies from Augustine, Jonathan Edwards, Alvin Plantinga and Anselm. Providing a modern treatment of an important theological and philosophical theme, this book is a clearly written and refreshing introduction to the subject.
