Product Description

However you package it, however long it lasts, doubt is a fundamental reality of, and an integral part to, faith. In Faith at the Edge philosopher Robert Wennberg explores the reality, nature, and outworking of doubt in the Christian life. Yet, this is not a book about fighting doubt, but is much more about navigating the turbulent waters of doubt that can last a lifetime.

Using his own experiences with doubt (which, as a philosopher must have been quite extensive, along with the experiences of exemplary Christian intellectuals such as G.K. Chesterton, Simone Weil, C.S. Lewis, and Martin Marty, Wannberg lays out the theological map of doubt and in doing so helps doubters come to terms with, and understand their doubt in positive and constructive ways.

Publisher's Description

Have you ever doubted your faith? Have you ever, deep down in your heart, doubted that God was really present in your life? Or wondered whether everything you believed in as a Christian was false? / Call it existential doubt. Call it “the dark night of the soul,” as one Christian saint famously did. Whatever you call it, it’s real. It is personal, it is painful, it is distressing, and it can last for years — maybe even a lifetime. / You are not alone. Such crises of the soul have come upon saints throughout Christian history — from John of the Cross in the sixteenth century to Mother Teresa in our own time. In fact, there may be something of this God-doubting in all of us. At some point in our Christian walk, most of us have traveled — or will travel — this dark path. / In Faith at the Edge Robert Wennberg draws from his own experience with doubt to address such troubling issues. But he also calls upon the wisdom and insight of such figures as Blaise Pascal, G. K. Chesterton, Simone Weil, C. S. Lewis, and Martin Marty. Laying out a theologically insightful account of what happens during doubt, Wennberg helps us understand how we can cope with these dark episodes and even profit from them spiritually.

    Absolutely untrue! unBiblical! not helpful at all! Biblical faith, based on firsthand knowledge of God/Christ, is altogether sacred, perfect, dynamic and sustainable with no room whatsoever for doubt.
