Description

Finding Faith is a chapter book that features four of the characters from two other books in the series, all brought together on a search to find a missing puppy named Faith. Their explorations take them from an amusement park to a hotel to a casino, and everywhere they go, people who discover that they are looking for “faith” have something to say about what faith and a belief in God mean to them. The kids exercise the skills of following complex arguments, suspending judgment, and having the courage of their convictions—as well as demonstrating the open-mindedness to consider other viewpoints.

The four main philosophers presented in this book—Augustine, Anselm, Aquinas, and Pascal—are classic in the original sense: judged as having the highest value over the test of time. The characters in the story discuss and evaluate their views from atheist, Christian, and Buddhist perspectives, and throughout, they offer readers different perspectives using convincing arguments that will help to teach tolerance for the beliefs of others.

This is a perfect-bound (glued) edition of this book, which has the advantage of a printed spine so that it can be found readily on a bookshelf. The book also comes in a saddle-stitched (stapled) edition. Additionally, there is an accompanying guidebook that serves both editions. (See below.)
