Item Description...
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness.So begins Charles Dickens's A Tale of Two Cities. And without doubt the Age of Reason--the Enlightenment--was a period unlike any other. In many respects it was during this time that the modern world was forged.It was a time when worldviews clashed and new ways of seeing and understanding emerged. And it was in the arena of religion, above all, that this clash took place. Our modern ideas of religion, our modern ideas of science, and our perspectives on the interaction between religion and science were developed as the Enlightenment gathered momentum and encountered opposition.In this volume, part of the IVP Histories series, Jonathan Hill examines the Age of Reason, spanning the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. He begins by describing how the Middle Ages came to an end with the Renaissance and the Reformation, setting the scene for the Enlightenment. He then takes you on a fascinating tour of the central themes and characters of this turbulent period. Themes covered include: the churches, the new science, the new philosophy, the question of authority, politices and society, God, humanity and the world, the reaction and the legacy. Key figures you'll encounter include Samuel Johnson, Galileo, Newton, Descartes, Hume, Voltaire, Pascal, Locke, Diderot, Rousseau and Kant.Packed with centuries worth of fascinating prose and beautiful four-color art yet small enough to fit in your pocket, Faith in the Age of Reason offers a wonderfully rich and enjoyable exploration of one of great perioed of human history.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Clear, concise presentation of the Enlightenment  Feb 19, 2005
This book was required reading for my class on "Christianity and the Enlightenment" at seminary, and although I found it to be informative, I also found that I forgot much of the material soon after I read it. I'm not sure what to attribute this fact to, but I'm guessing that it has something to do either with the author's style or just to the fact that this was a short book on a broad topic. I doubt that the latter is the cause, however, since I usually enjoy overview books of this sort. Aside from the fact that I immediately forgot a large amount of the material, however, Hill manages to give a good account of Enlightenment ideas and history, if you can handle the machinegun speed at which he introduces new people, ideas, and movements.
