The Many Faces of Faith

Published by Xlibris
There is a predominant view of faith in our modern age that is seriously in error. Faith is viewed as mere fantasy or hope with no basis in reality, and thus religious claims are excluded from the arena of knowledge, believing that such claims cannot be tested to evaluate whether or not they correspond to reality; i.e. their truthfulness. Most people think of faith as a blind leap into the non-real or the non-provable, rather than a reasoned judgment in reality.Faith is one of the most critical aspects of the Christian life, because it is the means by which we receive all that God has secured for us; yet the nature of faith is one of the most misunderstood concepts of Christianity. Some conceptualize faith as some mental state that one must reach before they are able to “tap into” God’s “resources.” Others view faith as some sort of incorporeal substance that is “out there” for which we must reach. All of these concepts of faith are deficient, if not heretical, and yet all of them are found in the church. Others view faith as a mere fantasy or hope with no basis in reality, and thus religious claims are excluded from the arena of knowledge. Therefore, in the pages of this book, I have endeavored to outline for your benefit the dynamics of faith. What is faith? How does faith works? How to grow in faith? The power of faith etc etc. THE MANY FACES OF FAITH is a most read.
