Item description for Finding Faith-Search For What Makes Sense (Finding Faith) by Brian D. McLaren...
Overview Finding faith is not a leap in the dark that requires you to forsake truth and intellectual honesty. In two companion volumes, Brian McLaren affirms the needs of both your mind and your heart as he helps you to find a faith that is real, honest, good, enriching, transforming, and yours.
Publishers Description Does having faith mean abandoning reason? It s easy to get that impression. Still, it seems reasonable that a supremely intelligent God would want you to use your God-given intellect on your spiritual journey as much as in any other aspect of your life. Faith may not stand on rational thinking alone, but a solid faith should walk hand in hand with intellectual integrity. Does it really matter what I believe? What is the relationship between faith and knowledge? Why are there so many religions? Do all paths lead to the same God? This book helps you sort through the questions, objections, and concerns you can t help but raise. A Search for What Makes Sense will help you think your way clearly and honestly to answers that satisfy because they re your answers---conclusions you ve arrived at personally without manipulation, coercion, or game-playing. For faith to exist and grow it s got to make sense---good sense, carefully-thought-out sense. And chances are it does. FINDING FAITH The Finding Faith books A Search for What Makes Sense and A Search for What Is Real don t try to tell you what to believe; they are guides in learning how to believe. If you think the spiritual journey requires turning your back on honesty and intellectual integrity, these two companion volumes will speak to both your mind and your soul."

Repackaging Finding Faith Mar 6, 2007
If you've read Brian Mclaren's Finding Faith you've already read this book. It is a repackaging of Finding Faith into two separate books. I did like Finding Faith which I would have rated 5 stars. I give this book only 1 star not for the content but for misleading me into buying what I thought was a different book. Save yourself some $ and buy Finding Faith. A Search For What Makes Sense & A Search For What Is Real rolled into one book.
