Synopsis

Today the concept of "believing" is generally considered to be of central significance to one's faith. Smith traces the history of "believing" through a discussion of religious belief from a modern philosophical and linguistic perspective; an assessment of the history of the words "belief" and "believe"; as well as through the study of biblical passages. Smith's comprehensive enquiry reveals that this emphasis on its importance is a relatively modern phenomenon.
