Examines the relationship between reason and religion using the thought of John Henry Newman as a base. Divided into three chapters, the author begins by examining the nature of human reason, and argues that reason is often understood in too narrow a sense. He discusses Newman's theory of how we begin with logically unprovable 'first principles.' Nabe concludes that religion, like science, relies on probable proofs, not on logically pure demonstration.
