Is Faith a Blind Leap?

According to New Atheist Sam Harris, “Faith is generally nothing more than the permission religious people give one another to believe things strongly without evidence.”* Coming from an atheist, this view is not surprising. But when it comes from believers? Recently, I heard a Christian argue, “Providing a reason for your faith is ultimately fruitless, regardless of how logical your reasons might be.
