In Praise of Doubt: How to Have Convictions Without Becoming a Fanatic, coauthored by Peter Berger and Anton Zijderveld, is now available.

In Praise of Doubt is a book of great practical wisdom by authors who have profound insight into the intellectual dynamics governing contemporary life. They clearly understand what very few people do. It is especially important that leaders in education and religion read this book. It strongly outlines a way of being intellectually responsible that incorporates common sense and substantive faith.” – Dallas Willard, professor of philosophy at the University of Southern California and author of The Divine Conspiracy

“Brilliant yet clear, highly illuminating and often humorous, this is vintage Berger spiced with Zijderveld’s philosophical perspectives. In Praise of Doubt is essential reading for people of all faiths- and not least secularists.” – Os Guinness, author of The Case for Civility

“We need more books like this: books that advance an argument, and do so concisely, wittily, with great learning lightly worn.” – John Wilson, editor, Books & Culture

“Since publication of his widely read The Sacred Canopy, Berger has been known as one of the most interesting and often controversial writers on the sociological aspects of religion, economics, and modern society.” – World of Sociology
