"This is a very practical and accessible introduction… a worthy successor to Paul Tillich's popular and well-worn text 'The Dynamics of Faith' (1957)." --Dermot A Lane, Mater Dei Institute of Education, Dublin, Ireland This introduction to religion and theology addresses the core questions about what faith is and what it means in the 21st century. As Professor Tilley writes, "This book is an exercise in learning how to see our faiths clearly so we can figure out how we can live well together in a world in which faith units and divides us."
