Rationality and Religious Commitment

Robert Audi

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores some of the many facets of religious commitment. That commitment is not a matter of faith alone, but has volitional and other attitudinal elements. The commitment may be very deep and govern much of the person’s life, or it may be fragile and relatively shallow. It may be enhanced and guided by vital narratives and aesthetic elements, and it may be private or embedded in institutional activities such as the life of a church.

Keywords:   religious commitment, faith, volition, attitude, vital narratives, aesthetic elements, religious institutions
