The Maxwell Institute and Brigham Young University are pleased to announce the publication of a new volume by BYU philosophy professor James E. Faulconer.
Faith, Philosophy, Scripture is a collection of ten essays that result from Faulconer's work as a philosopher and his faith as a Latter-day Saint. Faith is the starting point, and philosophy its supplement, rather than a competitor. Faulconer says, "The confidence of my faith, a confidence that came by revelation, has allowed me to hear the questions of philosophy without fear, and philosophy has never asked me to give up my faith, though it has asked questions about it." These essays ask what it means to remember (as our faith often calls us to do), how faith and reason are related to one another, what the place of theology is in revealed religion, and how we should think about scripture.
