Why Faith? : A Journey of Discovery Paperback / softback
by Matt Emerson
Why Faith?: A Journey of Discovery for the Modern Pilgrim tries to help men and women, particularly young adults formed by the modern world, work through some of the big questions and topics in faith that in the author's experience are especially pressing.
It tries to meet someone in the midst of his or her confusions and struggles, rather than presupposing deep theological interest or knowledge.
It addresses some specific theological matters (e.g., "How do I know God's will?") but it also addresses matters that are more philosophical or preliminary, for example: Why should I have faith at all?
What is the basis for entrusting ourselves to something we cannot verify with certainty?
Highlights: * It focuses on questions and the doubts of modern believers * It is grounded in the context of the 21st century; all the influences and distractions of the modern world, the allure of science, the rise of the New Atheists, etc. * It is not a work of apologetics or a general introduction, but it's more of a series of reflections that will help people better understand the Catholic, Christian faith * It doesn't presuppose theological knowledge; it's written for the average layperson, not an expert or a student of theology * It's accessible, and the chapters are short enough for dwindling attention spans.
