In examining the drama and dynamics of belief in the modern world, Roger Lundin focuses on the works of key poets and novelists of the past 200 years. Here, such authors as Emily Dickinson, Fyodor Dostoevsky, and W. H. Auden show the modern mind and heart learning to poise themselves between belief and unbelief. Theologians also vigorously enter the fray in this conversation. Lundin doesnt just rest on the resounding voices of the past, though they are ably represented here by such figures as Paul, Augustine, and Martin Luther. He shows how stalwart thinkers of the past century Barth, Balthasar, and others have faced the challenge of modern unbelief with a creative brilliance that has gone largely unnoticed outside the world of faith. Believing Again brings these voices into the larger cultural conversation.
In chapters dealing with a series of vital subjects from history and interpretation to beauty and memory, this book ranges across disciplines in its effort to comprehend the many changes that made unbelief possible and to examine the myriad implications of its enduring presence in modern experience.
