Peter Harrison’s review of Unbelievers: An Emotional History of Doubt

Follow THEOLOGY@Brisbane on WordPress.com

Peter Harrison’s review of Unbelievers: An Emotional History of Doubt by British historian Alec Ryrie is a valuable read. His overview shows how this sensitive account by a believer shows how unbelief is not unthinking or perverse, but an outcome of genuine and profound struggles of conscience. Harrison goes on to provide further insights, including ways we can learn from Teresa Morgan’s Roman Faith and Christian Faith, to show how the key New Testament word was “faith” (pistis) as “trust” rather than more remote theoretical propositions about God. https://lareviewofbooks.org/article/enchanting-disenchantment/
