Faith and Revelation

  • Basil Mitchell
Part of the Philosophy of Religion Series book series


If it is true, as my argument has suggested, not only of systems of religious belief, but also of secular world-views and moral and political theories that they require and admit of rational justification, but are not, and ought not to be, accepted by their adherents in a merely tentative and provisional manner, the complaint that, by assimilating the religious case to these others, I have overlooked the committed character of religious belief, loses much of its force. No doubt the character of religious faith is in important respects different, but the resemblances should not be neglected.
