In In Praise of Doubt, two world-renowned social scientists, Peter L. Berger (The Homeless Mind, Questions of Faith) and Anton C. Zijderveld (The Abstract Society, On Clichés), map out how we can survive the political, moral, and religious challenges raised by the extreme poles of relativism and fundamentalism. A book that asks and answers Big Questions, In Praise of Doubt offers invaluable guidance on how to have convictions without becoming a fanatic.
"We need more books like this: books that advance an argument, and do so concisely, wittily, with great learning lightly worn."
– John Wilson, editor, Books & Culture
"In Praise of Doubt is a book of great practical wisdom by authors who have profound insight into the intellectual dynamics governing contemporary life."
– Dallas Willard, author of Knowing Christ Today
"Brilliant yet clear, highly illuminating and often humorous, this is vintage Berger spiced with Zijderveld's philosophical perspectives. In Praise of Doubt is essential reading for people of all faiths – and not least secularists."
– Os Guinness, author of The Case for Civility
