Credo: Faith and Philosophy in Contemporary Ireland

Availability: In stock

A selection of personal and philosophical testimonies and apologias for the Christian faith, including a fascinating interview with Richard Kearney.


If faith trusts and hopes, philosophy speculates and argues. This book draws on the rich resources of both faith (revelation) and philosophy (reason) in approaching the existence of God and questions about religion. In an age of crass capitalism and cynicism, questions inevitably arise concerning our souls and spiritual state.

The essays within this book, diverse as they are, are philosophical as well as personal testimonies and apologias of the Christian faith, penned by believers who belong to a broad range of professions, from professional philosophy and theology to psychoanalysis and law. Credo: I believe. But in what do you believe. This book is a personal and passionate enquiry into that question.

Contributors to the book include Patrick Casey, Richard Kearney, Hugh Cummins, Cathy Molloy, Mitch Elliott, Patrick Quinn, Ellen O'Malley-Dunlop and Patrick Treacy.
