    For example, while the Real Presence in the Holy Eucharist is to be believed as a matter of faith, theology attempts to make it more understandable in terms of substance, accidents, transubstantiation, etc. He notes philosophical Faith and reason book to faith by a range of philosophers and explains their sometimes obscure meaning before addressing his counter argument. In other words, did we properly use our cognitive faculties in evaluating these beliefs? Preceded by the gift of grace and assisted by the Holy Spirit, it is an act of both the mind and the will. God created us in His image as rational creatures. People can even run from the truth as soon as they glimpse it because they are afraid of its demands.

    Faith and reason book Raschkes article was quite interesting, however I wonder at the pertinence of having a post-modern existential theologian represent the Tension view when one might have had a Barthian or Presuppositionalist apologist or theologian present their view a view that is probably a lot more predominant in the evangelical world. The thirst for truth is so rooted in the human heart that to be obliged to ignore it would cast our existence into jeopardy. Between these two poles, reason has its own specific field in which it can enquire and understand, restricted only by its finiteness before the infinite mystery of God. Justin and the apologists used philosophy as a "preamble" to the faith n. At the same time, however, knowledge through belief, grounded as it is on trust between persons, is linked to truth: in the act of believing, men and women entrust themselves to the truth which the other declares to them.

    This is why to this day the witness of the martyrs continues to Faith and reason book such interest, to draw agreement, to win such a hearing and to invite emulation. Rather, it is the Magisterium's duty to respond clearly and strongly when controversial philosophical opinions threaten right understanding of what has been revealed, and when false and partial theories which sow the seed of serious error, confusing the pure and simple faith of the People of God, begin to spread more widely. Faith gives the philosopher the courage to tackle difficult questions such as the problem of evil and suffering, the personal nature of God and the metaphysical question "Why is there something rather than nothing? There is a further reason why I write these reflections.
