Front Cover
Cosimo, Inc., 1. nov 2005 - 320 pages
Harry Emerson Fosdick was one of the most popular liberal preachers of the early twentieth century, and his The Meaning of Faith is considered by many one of the finest reconciliations of religious belief with modern scientific thought. This charming little book features daily devotional readings focused on understanding faith, reflecting upon: .Faith and Life's Adventure .Faith A Road to Truth .Faith's Intellectual Difficulties .Faith's Greatest Obstacle .Faith and Science .Faith and Moods and other hurdles in honoring one's belief. This thoughtful, friendly interpretation of the holy book of one of the world's dominant faiths is a powerful corrective to reflexively fundamental thinking... just as it was when it was first published in 1917. Also available from Cosimo Classics: Fosdick's The Manhood of the Master and The Meaning of Prayer. American theologian HARRY EMERSON FOSDICK (1878-1969) was born in New York, educated at Colgate and Columbia Universities, and served as professor of practical theology at Union Theological Seminary from 1915 to 1946. Among his many works are A Guide to Understanding the Bible (1938) and A Book of Public Prayers (1960).

Page 3 - By faith he sojourned in the land of promise as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise ; for he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.
