According to many Christians today, faith isn’t based on external facts or evidence, but instead is thought of as an internal subjective feeling, intuition or experience. But is this idea biblical? Does the Bible actually say that faith is related to our feelings? Where do other religions traditions stand on this issue? Shane Rosenthal investigates these questions and talks with Craig Parton, author of Religion on Trial.
