About-

This is a book hoping to embolden doubt and sharpen unanswerable questions, all in the context of loving the self and one another. Ridiculously, it believes the world can be healed through such a hope. It is especially addressed to those allergic to the word “faith,” and others who feel confident and proud in the faith they profess or system of thought they live by.



Humbling Faith helps us see how our beliefs, or non-beliefs, our belongings and identities, often remain flawed, myopic, self-absorbed, unredeemed. The hope is that such awareness of our brokenness can fuel greater ethical partnerships and dialogue, promoting peace from our recognized need for one another.



Humbling Faith
 is not only a resource towards humbling other faiths, but most importantly, your own.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“This is a humbling book about the frailty of human nature and the limitations of our reasonings. It is at the same time a deeply inspiring book because it so well shows that humans have an essential spirit of hope and inquiry. It inspires confidence that true humility is the only way to true and worthwhile understanding, and proper living together here on our shared planet home.”

—Michael Ruse, Florida State University



“In this engagingly written book, Peter Admirand ‘dreams of a humbled faith serving to unite peoples of all faiths, and no faith.’ With a stunning array of insights from many times and places, he calls for a humility that will inspire solidarity and moral growth. Such humility, he believes, is above all the fruit of dialogue among faiths, between faith and science, and between the religious and secular realms. A joy to read!”

—Phil Cunningham, St. Joseph’s University



“Both a committed Catholic believer and a religious pluralist, Peter Admirand is a creative theologian, who draws upon many traditions and genres. His tour de force on humility and forgiveness shows great breadth of knowledge, yet is written in an accessible, personal style. I found especially interesting his experiences working with the poor in the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and his openness to dialogue with theists of all types, atheists, and agnostics. The book challenged me intellectually, but also made me laugh and cry.”

—Debbie Weissman, former president of the International Council of Christians and Jews



“Humbling faith offers an entirely original treatment of religious humility in its different forms. In fresh and engaging prose, Admirand weaves together personal narrative, historical reality, and theological and philosophical reflection to demonstrate that dialogue with other religions, with atheists, and with history provides ample cause for carrying one’s faith humbly. It is both a fun and interesting read that significantly broadens the discussion on the topic of religious humility.”

—Catherine Cornille, Boston College
