Religious faith can be thought and analyzed reasonably from different aspects and dimensions. One of them is the emotional dimension, discussed by some thinkers, among whom is William James, the American famous philosopher. Dealing with this dimension in some of his writings, especially in "The Will to Belief", James clarifies the difference between religious beliefs as well as criticizes the views of Evidentialism. He shows that rationality of religious faith can not be damaged by interfering of will and emotional feelings. The paper presents an analytical account of James' viewpoint in this regard.
