    Lectura obligada para entender el mundo contempor neo Este libro es un tour de force de las corrientes filos ficas que definen a la civilizaci n occidental, la cual, como ninguna otra, ha basado su esplendor en un delicado balance entre la raz n y la fe No se entiende Occidente sin este balance, producto en gran medida del cristianismo A trav s de sus p ginas, el autor nos alerta ante los peligros de perder este equilibrio, en lo que llama patolog as de la fe o de la raz n por ejemplo, fe sin raz n es una de las causas principales del terrorismo isl mico, raz n sin fe lleva a los extremos brutales del comunismo y el fascismo o a la nueva tiran a de nuestros d as, claramente identificada ya por Bendedicto XVI la tiran a del relativismo Es interesante leer c mo la Iglesia Cat lica nos invita a una fe razonada y razonable, como dice San Pedro hay que saber dar las razones de nuestra fe Para un cristiano, en su condici n de imagen de un Dios bueno y razonable, tanto la fe como la raz n son fundamentales El cristianismo no se opone a la ciencia, al rev s, la promueve como resultado de la capacidad maravillosa del ser humano de conocer la verdad acerca de un mundo ordenado, creado por Dios en su infinita bondad Pero, al mismo tiempo, nos previene de un cientificismo burdo y materialista que afirma que s lo existe lo material y que el...

    Another argument for yet another Crusade And Gregg will use whatever argument might motivate you Do you see yourself as a reasonable person Well, you have to die for the reason Are you a religious person Well, you will have to die for faith.
