"The public image of contemporary philosophers is that their personal stories are all stories of losing faith or of never having had it. The stories in this volume shatter the image. They are stories by contemporary philosophers--many of them world-renowned--of coming to faith or returning, or of enduring in faith. The spiritual journeys narrated were never easy: there's a lot of suffering and desperation here, and perplexity. But after surprising turns they open to the joy of knowing God and discovering how to serve God on the way. It's a remarkable collection. Any assessment of either contemporary philosophy or spirituality will have to take account of the examples it gives of faith and philosophical reflection joined in life."
