Product Description

How do we know things? How can we know God? Knowing is an activity that we are all involved in, all of the time. We don't normally think about the act of knowing, but if we do, the question of what we know and how we know it becomes murky indeed. Longing to Know is a book about knowing: knowing how we know things, knowing how we know people, and knowing how we know God.

Knowing God is like knowing your auto mechanic, claims Esther Meek in this approachable and entertaining guide to the philosophy of knowledge. Ordinary acts of knowing are pervasive, and knowing God is just such an ordinary act of knowing. This message restores hope and confidence, as well as a sense of humility, adventure, and stewardship.

This book is for those who are considering Christianity for the first time, as well as Christians who are struggling with issues related to truth, certainty, and doubt. As such, it is a wonderful resource for evangelists, pastors, and counselors. Questions for reflection make it ideal for students of philosophy and all those wrestling with the questions of how we know.
