            The Logic of Faith: A Buddhist Approach to Finding Certainty Beyond Belief and Doubt

            A popular American Buddhist teacher explores the creative relationship between faith and doubt, knowing and not-knowing, and shows how an awakened life results from living from the place in between. <p/>Faith ( the F word, as the author calls it) is a problematic concept. It has ...various meanings, including as a way of referring to the kind of religious faith that people appeal to as something that gives them all the answers they need--which is the reason so many people reject the notion of faith entirely. But Elizabeth Mattis-Namgyel feels that faith is not only a useful concept, but a necessary aspect of the spiritual path, not to be avoided by Buddhists or anyone else. Faith is a response to the basic human conundrum, she says, our desire for an experience of ease in a world that can't be secured. It's a leap, as is sometimes said, but not a leap into easy certainty. That's why it's so beautiful. She uses the traditional Buddhist teachings known as the Middle Way (Madhyamaka) to show how learning to live between the extremes of faith and doubt is the way to honesty, compassion, and liberation.
