About-

In this revision of his widely read study, John Hick has taken advantage of constructive comments on the first edition to make the book more useful. New material has been added and the overall structure of the volume has been changed to strengthen it both as an introduction to the problem of religious knowledge and as an exposition of the view of faith that seems to him most adequate. There is a new chapter on the Thomist-Catholic view of faith; a new treatment of the controversial notion of eschatological verification, taking account of various published critiques of the concept; and a new section on the way in which the Christian faith-awareness of God expresses itself in a distinctive way of life.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"If our preaching, teaching or Christian conversation is not going well, if the old problems of faith and knowledge of God still seem new problems to us, this book is something like a necessity. The chapter on eschatological verification will be a standard model for a long time to come for anyone interested in the problem of verification of religious knowledge in terms of both logic and human experience."

William Hamilton (Christian Century)

"...this is a penetrating and carefully-reasoned essay, profound yet luminously clear."

Brian Gerrish (Union Seminary Quarterly Review)

"With quite extraordinary clarity and lucidity, he delineates the unique position of religious faith as an organ of knowledge."

Anglican Theological Review
