Increasingly, the future is becoming a theme for theological reflection. In the background we can detect a growing concern among many people for the future of faith. Does faith have any future at all, and, if so, where in all the confusion of today’s trends will we discover its embryo?

But the problem of the future assails not only the believer. In the ever more rapidly advancing process of historical evolution, man is confronted with enormous opportunities, but also with colossal perils. For him, the future is not only hope, but sorrow—a nightmare, indeed. He cannot avoid asking what part faith can play in building tomorrow’s world.

Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, approaches this problem of universal concern from a variety of angles, bringing his deep personal faith and theological brilliance to bear on these serious questions.

Top Highlights

“To put it very roughly, he reduced philosophy to the analysis of the conditions of the possibility of human knowledge, to the elucidation of the laws of human consciousness.” (Page 76)

“at its core, faith is, not a system of knowledge, but trust” (Page 33)

“men like Fichte, Hegel, and Schelling did try once again to break through into the realm of total reality” (Pages 76–77)

“limited to what is given and amenable to verification” (Page 76)

“kind of love that seizes a man and points the way he must go, even if that way is wearisome” (Page 36)

Praise for the Print Edition

Faith and the Future is a small book, but it deals with the largest issues, and does so in a way that has the ring of lived truth.

—Mike Potemra, editor, National Review
