This last work of Nathan Rotenstreich's attempts to detach the concept of faith from its religious underpinnings and consider it in its own right, as a human phenomenon and cognitive attitude. Faith, the author contends, should not be confused with its historical manifestations. By making faith a philosophical rather than a theological matter, he explores its essence as an awareness of how we relate within mundane reality to all that is beyond the human world. Arguing for the intentionality of faith, he shows how it structures a variety of relations that range from the experience of the holy to the nature of cults, traditional religion and the idea of servitude to God.
