The nearest book to me meeting the above criteria is ‘Descartes – Key philosophical writings’ edited by Enrique chavez-Avizo.

“And inasmuch as often in this life greater rewards are offered for vice than for virtue, few people would prefer the right to the useful, were they restrained neither by the fear of God nor the expectations of another life. Although it is absolutely true that we must believe that there is a God, because we are so taught in the holy scriptures, and on the other hand we must believe the holy scriptures because they come from God. The reason for this is, that, faith being a gift of God, He who gives the grace to cause us to believe that He exists, we nevertheless could not place this argument before infidels, who might accuse us of reasoning in a circle.”

I tag Shahrzad, BubblesKhwab, Dr Marranci, and Amal
