Says Soffin, “For those that experience in sleek lifestyles an underlying absence of basic meaning—yet worry self-deception in pursuing ‘God’—there might be no recourse yet to . . . start the traditional trip anew.”

Excerpts from Responses bankruptcy: “From his dialogue contrasting God as author with that of cosmic first reason, to his hugely stimulating presentation of information as actual incarnation, and lots more and plenty extra, this has been a booklet worthy examining. . . . i believe it truly is a minimum of a part of my task as a respondent right here to voice a few feedback. So, first of all, i'm susceptible to imagine that Soffin overly stresses the position of rationality in human life. . . .” —Daniel Liechty, affiliate Professor of Social paintings, college of Illinois

“. . . Soffin’s textual content delivered to brain John D. Caputo’s seminal and provocative notion. . . . even though they stare at one another from around the chasm isolating analytical from continental philosophical traditions, either authors search a flow into the ‘beyond’—beyond clinical materialism, past superstition, past faith (as institutionalized strictures), or even past the classical God himself (gendered language intended).” —Sharon L. Baker, affiliate Professor of Theology and faith, Messiah collage

“Soffin and i've been from side to side on philosophy for 50 years. I’ve referred to as him each nasty philosophical identify i may imagine of—essentialist, rationalist, objectivist, foundationalist, anti-relativist—to no avail. nonetheless he maintains to pursue his quest for fact and, in recent times, to surround theology in the orbit of that quest. Thank goodness for that simply because Rethinking faith repays cautious exam of its unfolding arguments and bursts forth time and again with robust, memorable prose.” —Herbert W.
