The talk "Entering the Door of Faith" was given by Steve Bevans, S.V.D, on January 26, 2013 on the occasion of the annual alumni reunion of Catholics on Call, a CTU program of discernment for young adults contemplating a life of ministry in the church. The theme of the reunion was in conjunction with the Year of Faith declared by Pope Benedict XVI from October 2012 until November 2013, a year, the pope said, when Catholics are asked to renew their understanding of and commitment to Catholic Christian faith. Steve's talk begins with a definition of faith as an act that is renewed continuously and that three dimensions--intellectual, affective, and behavioral. Steve then expands on these three dimensions, and reflects as well on the ideas of faith as a gift, faith and doubt, and faith and reason.
