Avoiding Mindless Fideism and Faithless Rationalism

In his review of Berkouwer’s book, A Half Century of Theology in Themelios, Vol. 4, No. 1, New Series, September 1978, pp. 40-41, Bruce Demarest describes Berkouwer’s view of faith and reason, Demarest commends him for his careful avoidance of “the polarities of a mindless fideism and a faithless rationalism” (p. 41).
