Proper Confidence. Leslie Newbigin

The late Lesslie Newbigin had a long career as a missionary to India, and experience which gave him unusual insights into the deep differences between Hindu and Christian culture. This book, as the title suggests, is a remarkably lucid introduction to the epistemology–how we know, what we know, and what knowledge is. He develops a strong case (drawing especially on the scientist/philosopher Michael Polanyi, that knowledge of God (theology) and of God’s world (science) is of the same sort–genuine knowledge, but always tentative, exploratory, based on faith. Well worth a read.
