The Logic of Religious Persuasion


John H. Whittaker

Steering between a psychological treatment of religious persuasion on the one hand and the arguments of natural theology on the other, this original book outlines a new direction in the philosophy of religion. By showing that a religion's nobility, its promise of purpose, and its ability to settle us into selfhood enliven its teachings, this essay expands the notion of reasonable believing, forcing it to include some forgotten aspects of good judgment.
