Publisher's Description

In a world of spiritual options, people constantly tell us what to believe. Yet, while we hear these pleas, we're already functioning with existing beliefs—even if they are beliefs by default. So how do we choose what to believe—especially in the area of faith? Do we need to choose? In Choosing Your Faith, Mark Mittelberg encourages us, as Socrates does, not to lead an unexamined life. He invites us to examine why we believe what we believe. This examination will resonate with Christians and seekers alike.

Life is full of choices, most of which are small and essentially insignificant, such as which color shirt to wear today or which brand of toothpaste to buy. But what about choices with eternal significance that need to be explored and researched before making a final decision? In Choosing Your Faith, Mark Mittelberg leads his readers through the process of discovering what they believe about their faith, why they believe it, and if those beliefs will ultimately be valid.

Mittelberg begins by tackling the obvious question: Why choose any faith at all? He acknowledges that organized religions have had some dark and ugly episodes through history, but establishing a valid belief system remains a critical basis for a person’s life. So Mittelberg invites the reader to take the time to make sure that foundation is solid by examining and comparing the main paths of religion.

He spends considerable time explaining the six faith paths:

• Relativistic - subjective; created in the human mind; “it works for me and fits my other beliefs”

• Traditional – beliefs and traditions that have been handed down though generations

• Authoritarian – beliefs imposed by an authority figure or organization

• Intuitive – ideas from instincts, intuition, or “street sense”

• Mystical – based on encounters with supernatural beings or through mystical revelation

• Evidential – use of logic and sensory experience to evaluate beliefs

Mittelberg does an excellent job of guiding believers of all faiths (yes, even Christianity) into an honest retrospection of their beliefs and challenges them to keep digging deeper to decide for themselves if those beliefs are true. Naturally, he hopes the reader will decide that following Jesus Christ is the right choice, but he gradually builds to that point without attacking or belittling the reader’s current beliefs.-- Jeff Friend, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    What a fantastic book. Having been baptized into the Christian Faith at birth, I have received a lot of instruction in God's Word. This book just helps cement the reason for my faith in the Triune God and will help me make the argument for choosing the Christian faith when I talk to skeptics. Thank you, Mark.

    What an excellent book! The message is laid out very well, and each page has a teaser on it, so even a perusal of the book will impart good information. I purchased this book for each of our grown kids' Christmas stockings. This is a must read for believer and nonbeliever alike. Good info for talking to others about faith issues.

    I found this book to be a really nice departure from the standard apologetics in that the process Mr. Mittelberg offers will work no matter what faith tradition one is looking at. Mr. Mittelberg does ultimately defend his Christian faith, but that does not detract from the process he lays out. He states often that even if you are looking at Christianity you have a duty to yourself to investigate the claims in light of the evidence. Absolutely worth the read and everyone can and will benefit from the wisdom found in its pages.
