Second Review: Nicholas Wolterstorff

A second review of our new book, Faith Seeking Understanding, has now come in from the insightful philosopher, Nicholas Wolterstoff (Penn State historian Phillip Jenkins kindly wrote the first)

Faith and intellectual inquiry are often pitched against each other, not only by unbelievers but also by believers. David Marshall's FAITH SEEKING UNDERSTANDING is a collection of seventeen engaging stories of search in which the two are intertwined. Some are stories of seeking to understand what one is longing for; some are stories of seeking to understand better what already one believes; some are stories of seeking to understand the world in the light of what one believes. What makes the collection especially fascinating and valuable is the individuality and particularity of the stories -- a concrete testimony to the fact that the Christian intellectual life takes many forms.

Thanks, John. I learned a lot from his Divine Discourse.
