Rationality, Humility, and Spirituality In Christian Life

Hi <<First Name>>,

As Euro-American culture turns resolutely away from religiosity, toward spirituality and becomes increasingly post-Christian, the ordinary, everyday practice of Christian life is ever more questioned and in need of scrutiny.

In this interdisciplinary analysis, Christians are first called to comprehend the excessive rationality that modernity has built into both the cognitive and organizational structure of contemporary Christian life. They are then summoned to personify an authentic attitude of humility, and in particular, the virtue of intellectual humility that is most challenged and tested by religious convictions.

Going forward, Christians are invited to live their faith more as an internally-differentiated and open spirituality, rather than an externally-determined and regulated religiosity.

When we exhaust our rationality and are confronted with its limitations, we are humbled by our finitude and animated by our spirituality.

Praise for Rationality, Humility, and Spirituality In Christian Life

“It is for those of us whose capacity for religious faith has been corroded by seemingly irrefutable materialist epistemologies that this superb little book has been written. The author offers an incisive analysis of and antidote to this peculiarly Western religious malaise in three extended essays, each elegantly written, persuasively argued, and profoundly relevant.”
Jonathan Bonk, Research Professor in Mission, Boston University

“Dennis Hiebert offers a thought-provoking analysis of post-Christendom that invites Christians to consider new ways of experiencing and expressing their faith personally and collectively.”
Michael Wilkinson, Professor of Sociology, Trinity Western University, Canada
