" " What this book suggests is that contemporary Christian faith,
if it is to be thoroughly genuine, must in open candor allow
itself to be both challenged and threatened by the questions
and the living experience of the unbeliever. " Bernard Cooke, S.J. "

" " Loss of faith" is in an over-simplifying ascription for a complex phenomenon embracing a whole gamut of spiritual attitudes from militant apostasy to agnostic indifference.
However the common element shared by all these various attitudes is not rooted in the disposition of the non-believer, but, curiously enough, in that of the believer.
In the majority of cases of "loss of faith" is not the result of a defect in the religious make-up of a given individual who may reject Christianity;
rather it is the result of a defect among believers themselves.
For not infrequently it is the latter who through lack of tact, arrogance, smugness, or sheer ignorance drive the insecure away from acceptance of the Gospel. "

" This book, therefore, is aimed primarily at those who have "kept the faith."
It pleads with them to show greater respect for the sincere doubter, to seek to understand him "from the inside," to engage him not in polemic but in genuine dialogue, and so to show him the true face of Christ. "

" Father Bellet has written a phenomenology of unbelief and of re-conversion which is both theologically and psychologically penetrating as well as eminently practical.
This is a book that will help the reader cleanse his thinking of dead formulas and religious cant and create a language that is faithful to the word of Christ. "
