Item Description...
Overview
Faith and reason are presently in crisis. This judgment, albeit controversial, constitutes the foundations of this project. The central danger of this crisis does not so much consist in the denial as in the banalization of God, whether as a fundamentally irrational claim of faith or at best as a purely regulative idea of reason. However, offering an account of the hope that is in us, and hence of the faith that gives rise to hope, requires on the part of Christian theology a rigorous intellectual effort, in short, the unfettered use of reason for the sake of faith in the God who is always greater than anything that can be thought. The point of such rigorous intellectual effort is not to offer a theological legitimization of reason as such, but rather to put reason to work theologically so that it comes genuinely to itself in realizing that God is and remains greater than anything that can be thought. Moreover, recognizing the limits and weaknesses of reason is possible only from a vantage point that deepens, broadens, and at the same time questions reason's horizon. Such a deepening, broadening, and questioning, however, always and only occurs reasonably, that is, through reason's own action.

The program of the present volume is to inquire into the reasons of faith in order to offer theological resources to constructively address the double crisis of faith in reason and reason in faith. We inquire, first, into the theological constitution of reason; second, into reason as one specific faculty of human being; third, into the significance of the philosophical shifts of modernity for theology; and fourth, into the importance of philosophy for theological inquiry.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Reason and the reasons of faith by Paul J Griffiths & Reinhard Hutter, eds  Feb 13, 2008
This book is a must read for all who would engage in any serious theological inquiry. In an era when there is huge cultural distrust of human reason and/or confusion over its due role in establishing appropriate ways for human living, the Christian community has much to offer from what it has learned over the centuries. The book consists of papers from the Princeton Center of Theological Inquiry colloquia between 2000 & 2003, and is simply among the very best contributions to a vitally needed discussion. Its contents range from historical and cultural assessments of key Christian thinkers and practitioners to elaborating on the significance of key theological topics or loci for how reason might properly function. The individual contributions are of such a high quality that comparison of particular essays is, as they say, invidious! For all that, Charles Taylor's Postscript, Engaging the Citadel of Secular Reason, is just about alone worth the entry ticket. Enjoy - and live with due faith and reasonableness.
