This is a book about faith, and about the need to search for faith with integrity - an integrity which requires a ruthless honesty and seeks to leave no place for compartmentalizing the self.

He suggests that it is essential for believers to take the risk of standing in no-man's-land, and, in that space of vulnerability and insecurity, to pay heed to all those who give voice to a passion and a restlessness for truth.
