Product Description

* In the Enlightenment's wake, atheism became an intellectually and socially acceptable option in the 19th century. Ranging across disciplines, Lundin explores the works of literary thinkers---including Emily Dickinson, Fyodor Dostoevsky, and Karl Barth---to show how the modern mind stood poised between faith and skepticism, and how it challenged unbelief with creative brilliance. 320 pages, softcover from Eerdmans.

Publisher Description

Believing Againis a study of the intellectual and cultural consequences of the nineteenth-century emergence of open unbelief as an intellectually viable and socially acceptable option.

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 doesn’t 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.
