Anthony Kenny is one of the leading philosophers of the post-war years. As he recounts in this book, he abandoned the Roman Catholic priesthood to set out on an intellectual journey which led him to become a professional academic and philosopher of distinction. Kenny responds to the request to write personally and honestly about his own struggles with belief with attempts to argue for the existence of God and to show how he has developed a position which is that neither of the theist nor the atheist. Pascal's wager is the subject of a key chapter. He also wrestles with the concept of happiness and why it means so much to him. Kenny prowls at the frontiers of theology and philosophy and his work appeals to a wide spectrum of readers - those who believe and those who find it hard to do so - and his intellectual honesty will touch the hearts and minds of many people.
