Originally published in 1937, this book provides a detailed discussion of the nature of Christian faith and belief in its relationship with the concept of redemption. The text attempts to focalize the concept of redemption as a single, dominant idea from which Christian truth can be interpreted. The perspective of faith being a singularity serves as the starting point for a more generalized discussion of epistemological issues. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in theology and the Christian conception of faith.
