Christian Belief

Christian faith is a risk. But unbelief is no less a risk. It is the risk of missing the best that life can offer. Scepticism may close the door to renovating experience. We may suffer ineffable loss by remaining blind to truths which we lack the daring to apprehend or to goodness and beauty which we are too dull to perceive. Life is a risk every way. It is as we said in the first lecture - decision, commitment, adventure.
