Xavier graduate Frank B. Nieman just released his new theological book, Religious Faith and Reason: A Brief Introduction. In his younger days, Nieman took part in an experimental professional evangelist program for the Catholic laity in San Francisco. Although the program ended after Vatican II, Neiman’s experiences and background, including holding a master’s degree in philosophy and a doctorate in theology, led him to see how reason was influencing not only his conversion but also his preaching.

Nieman believes human reason is the greatest gift the Creator has given us. As a result, he claims religion’s origins, content and effects on the world should be subject to a rational analysis. Religious Faith and Reason: A Brief Introduction introduces the concept of rational analysis, which Nieman demonstrates through Christianity. Although he warns there may be a few heresies within his approach, he welcomes reader feedback.

The book can be ordered at AmazonBarnes and Noble and other bookstores.
