This classic of Christian apologetics seeks to persuade the skeptic that there are good reasons to believe in God even though it si impossible to understand the Deity fully. First written over a century ago, the "Grammar of Assent "speaks as powerfully to us today as it did to its first readers. Because of the informal, non-technical character of Newman's work, it still retains its immediacy as an invaluable guide to the nature of religious belief. An introduction by Nicholas Lash reviews the background of the "Grammar, "highlights its principal themes, and evaluates its philosophical originality.
"Here is presented one of the most famous 19th century statements of Christian apologetics, including a most influential analysis of the faith-reason controversy." --"Reprint Bulletin Book Reviews"
