This study deals with the perennial question of how far religious faith needs reason. The book deals squarely with such problems as the existence of different religions, the relation between science and religion, and how religion should be treated in a pluralist society.
“Rationality and Religion” deals with the perennial question of how far religious faith needs reason.
“Those acquainted with Trigg's other work will not be surprised or disappointed by three trade marks: energy, clarity and breadth. Throughout this fine book, Trigg defends a more robust concept of religious faith which takes truth claims seriously. And Trigg argues this point in the course of discussing a breadth of topics: political liberal theory, competing models of sociological explanation, radical feminism, philosophy of history, and revised religious conceptions of God.” Charles Taliaferro "This book is a welcome addition to the science/religion, objective/subjective, fatih/reason debates. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty.“ W. F. Desmond, Black Hawk College ”For the comprehensiveness of its coverage, the excitement of its argument, and the vigour of its conclusions, Trigg's book is to be recommended.“ Ross Hutchinson ”I recommend this book very highly to specialists in the field."
