Believing Again : Doubt and Faith in a Secular Age, Paperback / softback Book

Believing Again : Doubt and Faith in a Secular Age Paperback / softback

Description

In Believing Again Roger Lundin brilliantly explores the cultural consequences of the rather sudden nineteenth-century emergence of unbelief as a widespread social and intellectual option in the English-speaking world. / Lundin's narrative focuses on key poets and novelists from the past two centuries -- Dostoevsky, Dickinson, Melville, Auden, and more -- showing how they portray the modern mind and heart balancing between belief and unbelief.

Lundin engages these literary luminaries through chapters on a series of vital subjects, from history and interpretation to beauty and memory.

Such theologians as Barth and Balthasar also enter the fray, facing the challenge of modern unbelief with a creative brilliance that has gone largely unnoticed outside the world of faith.

Lundin's Believing Again is a beautifully written, erudite examination of the drama and dynamics of belief in the modern world.
