What is religious faith? And how does modern society view truth? Sharon Warner, in Experiencing the Knowing of Faith, discusses the understanding formed by "deep truth," or knowledge intrinsic to a person's self-identity. She critiques today's susceptibility to the paradigm of Cartesian dualities such as mind-body and subject-object, and in doing so utilizes the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead and Michael Polanyi. Concluding with an exploration of the relevance of this theory for teaching faith, the work will be of great use to religious scholars and to philosophers.
