Doubt and Faith in a Secular Age. In 'Believing Again' Roger Lundin brilliantly explores the cultural consequences of the rather sudden nineteenth-century emergence of unbelief as a widespread social and intellectual option in the English-speaking world.
Lundin's narrative focuses on key poets and novelists from the past two centuries--Dostoevsky, Dickinson, Melville, Auden, and more--showing how they portray the modern mind and heart balancing between belief and unbelief. Lundin engages these literary luminaries through chapters on a series of vital subjects, from history and interpretation to beauty and memory. Such theologians as Barth and Balthasar also enter the fray, facing the challenge of modern unbelief with a creative brilliance that has gone largely unnoticed outside the world of faith. Lundin's 'Believing Again' is a beautifully written, erudite examination of the drama and dynamics of belief in the modern world.
"Remarkable. . . . A masterly exploration of the belief/unbelief debate in modern times, this book clearly and elegantly brings out what the main contributors--poets, philosophers, and theologians--have to say. There is no more appropriate companion to Charles Taylor's magisterial 'A Secular Age.'" -- David Martin London School of Economics
