    Hello,

    "It gave him a preternaturally youthful look- this unconsummated expectation of tragic event. The look which people born again into their faith sometimes acquire. "

    It is from the book titled "the Finkler Question."


    Does in this sentence "be born again into one's faith" mean "finding their faith again" ?

    Thank you in advance

    You're essentially correct. "Born again" is a term used by some Christian groups. Wikipedia explains it succinctly (follow the link).
