Counterpoints: George H. Smith and W. Bingham Hunter on Faith and Reason

Atheist George H. Smith- "Reason and faith are opposites, two mutually exclusive terms: there is no reconciliation or common ground...Faith is belief without, or in spite of, reason."1

Christian Educator W. Bingham Hunter- "Faith...is a rational response to the evidence of God's self-revelation in nature, human history, the Scriptures and his resurrected Son."2

Courage and Godspeed,
Chad
