Faith Leads to Knowledge


"... it was my work that oriented me towards Christianity and convinced me of its truth. It is not because I'm a Christian that I think as I do; it is because of my research that I became a Christian. I also question the distinction between an intellectual and an emotional conversion. As for St. Paul, the word 'spirit', for me, includes the emotional and the intellectual side of a human being; and rather than 'intellectual', the expression 'the life of the mind' should be used in this instance. Conversion is a form of intelligence, of understanding." -- René Girard
