Religious belief and rational scrutiny

"In more sober Scots terms, Hume makes a similar case to the more passionate, romantic one put forward by Kierkegaard a century later, in which faith is seen as a leap beyond reason, undertaken in fear and trembling. To assert the primacy of faith over reason is not something to be done glibly to get over rational difficulties."
