The contention that any beliefs, let alone faith, can be certain is anathema to our postmodern culture. Yet it has been the perennial teaching of the Church that, by means of our natural reason, we can attain certain knowledge of the existence of God. This book builds upon the fact that there is an intrinsic, formative principle within thought-namely, being. Such a fact will be beneficial to anyone seeking to ground a clear and certain understanding of the nature of faith. Those unfamiliar with the idea of analogy of being will be intrigued by this concept's depth and compass. After securing this idea within natural theology, Barry R. Pearlman goes on to thread the analogy of being through cosmology, Christology, the nature of the Church, and the moral and spiritual life. This book is designed to take the reader from a situation of doubt, then through faith and the understanding of virtue, to arrive finally at the threshold of contemplation.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Whether you are inquiring into Christianity or simply attempting to deepen your understanding, possessing a single book that covers so much and gives an organic sense of the Catholic faith as an inter-connected whole is a great gift, and this thoroughly up-to-date and intelligent volume is worth more than its weight in gold. A Certain Faith is a remarkable achievement, both inspiring and uplifting-an accessible synthesis of traditional metaphysics and fundamental theology that offers the basis for a renewal of apologetics. Such clarity, in such depth and breadth, is exceedingly rare in our time. Nor are theology and philosophy here separated from spirituality and the interior life, as is too often the case. It should find its way into as many libraries and reading lists as possible. * Second Spring *
Dr. Pearlman's book is a remarkable achievement, an accessible synthesis of traditional metaphysics and fundamental theology that offers the basis for a renewal of apologetics. Such clarity, in such depth and breadth, is exceedingly rare in our time. Nor are theology and philosophy here separated from spirituality and the interior life, as is too often the case. The book is both inspiring and uplifting. -- Stratford Caldecott, Centre for Faith and Culture, Oxford
