David Fergusson’s Faith and Its Critics: A Conversation is written in response to the new atheists,

..David Fergusson’s Faith and Its Critics: A Conversation  Gifford lectures, Oxford University Press, 2009 is written in response to the new atheists, especially Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Christopher Hitchens and Sam Harris. Fergusson regards it as incumbent on Christians to give an answer for the hope that is in them and in this sense his book is certainly an apologetic work. In engaging the new atheists on their own territory Fergusson turns in his second chapter to discussion of the credibility of religious faith.  He begins by cautioning against the reductive understanding of faith as an assent to intellectual propositions deployed by many of the new atheists. Instead he argues that faith is a personal trust which motivates a whole set of intellectual and moral commitments and transforms an entire way of living. https://www.giffordlectures.org/books/faith-and-its-critics-conversation

Miroslav Volf on helping to mend the fractures that characterize life

In this interview, Volf reflects on the challenge of living a theology in the fissures of life; the often irreducible complexity of human experience; how Volf’s own biography and personal experience with oppression during the Cold War impacted his theology; the centrality of memory to forgiveness; and the importance of living as a porous, open self—open to encountering and embracing the other. For theologian Miroslav Volf, it’s important that a theologian stand in the fissures—the cracks of human life—helping to mend and tie and heal the fractures that characterize that life, directing humanity back to its telos—its animating purpose and ultimate goal. Volf is the Henry B. Wright Professor of Systematic Theology at Yale Divinity School and founding director of the Yale Center for Faith and Culture. https://cct.biola.edu/standing-in-the-fissures-miroslav-volf/
