By Faith And Reason: The Essential Keith Ward
by Ed. Wm Curtis Holtzen and Roberto Sirvent
Publisher:DLT (Darton, Longman and Todd Ltd)
This is a good collection and overview of Keith Ward's thoughts and work spanning key subject areas likely to be encountered by any undergraduate, and as such it makes a handy cribber's guide and overview. With a new essay by Prof. Ward in the Faith and Reason section, the book covers as well Concepts of God, Science and Religion, the Bible & Its Interpretation and lastly Interfaith Dialogue and Disagreement. Obviously being selected essays on these subjects they readily give us a keen insight into Ward's works, ideas and style, but more than that they give us an overview of the subject matter covered as a whole and so in that way can be a good primer on these subjects for any with a passing interest in theology. The work is an homage by the editors to Keith Ward, as is made clear at the beginning of the book, and though that may seem a little strange, and of course colours the materials selected, it is perhaps nevertheless a worthy book given how prolific Keith Ward has been as a theologian and writer.
