In his book Concluding Unscientific Postscript, he describes the core part of the leap of faith: the leap. David F. Swenson described the leap in his 1916 article The of Kierkegaard using some of Kierkegaard's ideas. H2 plus O becomes water, and water becomes ice, by a leap. If God held truth in one hand and the eternal pursuit of it in the other, He would choose the second hand according to Lessing.
The Case for God book. Persons of faith, however, were by this time hooked on their concept of "belief," which they had gleaned from the sciences. Armstrong's case for the defence is essentially that people are interpreting religion wrongly: to the founders of the religions faith was about mystery, symbolism, practice and good works. Early Christians, Armstrong argues, looked to the scriptures for inspiration not information, and would be shocked at what religion has become for many people today.
