In a world filled with skepticism, even our faith is affected by misgivings! What's a Christian to do? McGrath asserts that our doubts are not a sign of spiritual weakness---they're evidence of growing pains! He explores our qualms biblically, personally, and culturally---putting them in perspective and showing us how to handle them. 168 pages, softcover from InterVarsity.
We live in a culture that doubts everything as a matter of principle. In such an environment, how can even faith be immune to doubt? Can I really trust in the gospel? Does God really love me? Can I really be of any use to God? We are taught to doubt but commanded to believe. Somehow we think that admitting to doubt is tantamount to insulting God. But doubt is not a sign of spiritual weakness--rather it's an indication of spiritual growing pains. Alister McGrath, no stranger to a faith born of doubt, here offers good news to doubters: your faith can grow, and strengthen as it grows. It needs to take root in your experience of God, it needs to take in the nourishment of instruction in the words and ways of God, it needs to be stretched into greater obedience to the commands and calling of God--but it can grow beyond doubt into a thriving relationship.
