The Curious Christian
A broad look at curios
ity and the Christian, the author makes a solid case for the role
curiosity plays in the life of a believer – whether the ordinary layman living
a rather mundane life or the scholar who is researching questions of lasting
consequences. Questions are part of
being human – whether it is in culture, the sciences, or faith.
The author explores a number of questions related to curiosity:
- What are we to be curious about?
- Are there topics which are out of bounds?
- How do we satisfy our curiosity?
- Are there eternal consequences for our curiosity?
Ultimately, I was somewhat disappointed in the books presentation. It did not draw me in, nor was it as practical as I would have liked. Much of it consists of a description of one man’s personal journey as a curious person – perhaps of interest to some, not to this reader. This is one book I will not be adding to my permanent library.
