Perseverance of faith
The essay highlights the importance of faith and repentance. In the post-industrial reality in which we live, the christian is called to affirm his confession through a genuine conversion, following the model of the prodigal son. Faith is an interpellation, the form of open communication with God. The author offers a biblical example, in the person of the Canaanite woman. The Canaanite woman’s model is an example of how one can be inhabited by the Lord through the bright perseverance of a pure heart.
