In this passionate and searching book, Anthony Kronman offers a third way—beyond atheism and religion—to the God of the modern world We live in an age of disenchantment. The number of self-professed “atheists” continues to grow. Yet many still feel an intense spiritual longing for a connection to what Aristotle called the “eternal and divine.” For those who do, but demand a God that is compatible with their modern ideals, a new theology is required. This is what Anthony Kronman offers here, in a book that leads its readers away from the inscrutable Creator of the Abrahamic religions toward a God whose inexhaustible and everlasting presence is that of the world itself. Kronman defends an ancient conception of God, deepened and transformed by Christian belief—the born-again paganism on which modern science, art, and politics all vitally depend. Brilliantly surveying centuries of Western thought—from Plato to Augustine, Aquinas, and Kant, from Spinoza to Nietzsche, Darwin, and Freud—Kronman recovers and reclaims the God we need today.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED * What it means to be "born again"? * If Jesus is really present in communion? * If it is okay to go to Mary and the Saints in prayer? * How faith and works are related to salvation? * If the baptism in the Holy Spirit is for real? * What the Catholic Mass is really all about? * Why the Catholic Bible has more books than other Bibles? * If the rules and traditions of the Catholic Church are Scriptural? * What happened century by century in Catholic Church history--and why? * What God has to say about Christian unity? This book answers these questions and many others from the down-to-earth viewpoint of attorney Daniel Wiegand who, after confronting his own questions about Christianity and Catholicism, explored the Bible and became a born again, Bible believing, Spirit filled, Catholic. If you're not familiar with the term "born again," don't worry. This book is definitely Catholic and has received the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur. If you'd like to be a better informed Catholic, have a greater understanding and appreciation of your faith, get more out of Mass, have a closer relationship with Jesus and the Holy Spirit and be able to respond to those who say the Catholic Church isn't scriptural, read this book. If you have a friend or loved one who has left the Catholic Church, this book may draw them back. If you're a former Catholic or a non-Catholic who has questioned the scriptural basis for Roman Catholicism, this book will benefit you as well. With over 600 Scripture references and quotations the author literally makes the case for Roman Catholicism. WHAT DR. FRANS BRANDT, Ed.D, ABMP SAYS In his Foreword to the book, Dr.Brandt, author of ten books published in several countries, says "Both Catholic and non-Catholic Christians-as well as anyone who has even the slightest interest in the Bible, spirituality, or Church history-will be greatly blessed by reading this book. ...Wiegand has written the kind of book, perhaps even the book, that may play a major role in bringing about greater unity to the body of Christ."

This volume is accurately annotated, including * an extensive biography of the author and his life Confessions (Latin: Confessiones) is the name of an autobiographical work, consisting of 13 books, by St. Augustine of Hippo, written between AD 397 and AD 398. Modern English translations of it are sometimes published under the title The Confessions of St. Augustine in order to distinguish the book from other books with similar titles. Its original title was "Confessions in Thirteen Books", and it was composed to be read out loud with each book being a complete unit. The work outlines Augustine's sinful youth and his conversion to Christianity. It is widely seen as the first Western autobiography ever written, and was an influential model for Christian writers throughout the following 1000 years of the Middle Ages. It is not a complete autobiography, as it was written in his early 40s, and he lived long afterwards, producing another important work (City of God); it does, nonetheless, provide an unbroken record of his development of thought and is the most complete record of any single person from the 4th and 5th centuries.
