Faith, Trust, & Belief: A Trilogy of the Spirit

AuthorHouse, 2007年12月5日 - 260 頁
With the world changing so rapidly in the 21st century, what is there left to believe in?  Do traditional religions, science and philosophy still have anything left to offer - something that promises measurable hope?  Are the words "faith," "trust" and "belief" still meaningful?  Rev. Jim Willis believes that the next thrust of human evolution needs to be in the realm of the spirit; the human heart.  He puts forth the argument that this step is natural and to be expected, because humankind is growing into a potential inherent since the beginnings of consciousness.
