Going Deeper: A Reasoned Exploration of God and Truth
Ignatius Press, 155 pages
“Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth,” Pope John Paul II began his 1998 encyclical Fides et Ratio. Yet many Christians cannot adequately explain why they believe as they do.
Beginning with the evidence for God, Leo Severino — who wrote and produced the popular faith-based films Bella and Little Boy — invites the reader on a journey of simple logic that considers the meaning of human existence, the purpose of suffering, free will, and the quest for truth. He uses brief chapters to explain philosophical ideas in language accessible to everyone. It’s a taste of Thomas Aquinas for the masses.
