Overview

Belief or Nonbelief?: A Confrontation by Umberto Eco, Carlo Maria Martini

In this stimulating dialogue these two great men, who stand on opposite sides of the church door, discuss some of the most controversial issues of the day. One is a respected scholar and one of the pre-eminent ecumenical churchmen of Europe; the other the world famous author of The Name of the Rose, a scholar, philosopher and self-decalred secularist, a man who writes with equal ease about Thomas Aquinas and James Joyce, computers and the medieval Templars.

Often adversarial but always amicable, their debate will fascinate many.
