Publisher's Description

It's okay to doubt.

With these opening words of his introduction, Michael Babcock draws in skeptics and believers alike with the comforting assurance that their questions do not disqualify them from faith. Rather, he asserts, doubt is essential to faith because our doubts drive us to God.

Readers will instantly relate to Babcock's personal, casual tone as he deftly leads them on a journey between two dangerous extremes. On one side, he cautions readers against a fundamentalist attempt to wipe doubt away. On the other side, he guards against a contemporary tendency to make doubt a badge of honor.

Penetrating insights into Bible stories and characters provide a solid scriptural foundation as Babcock describes doubt as a natural part of the human condition. Babcock leads readers to a wonderful conclusion: The only answer to doubt is an encounter with the living God.

    Do you struggle with doubt? Do you feel guilty about your questions? I can say I did, which is why I was so blessed to read this book. I was plagued with guilt because I had so many questions and doubts. This excellent and profound book helped me so much.

    In his introduction, Dr. Babcock states that doubt is not the same as unbelief - and that a faith that asks questions is a stronger than a faith that never thinks. He also mentions that we'll never stop asking questions because doubt is a normal part of our lives. I also learned that doubt is necessary and even useful as we ask questions about ourselves, others and the world.

    The chapters begin with a Key Idea and end with a Summing-Up and For Further Reflection. This awesome book consists of 14 Chapters that are jammed packed with profound wisdom. I truly believe this book could be used in any college curriculum.

    Here are just a few excerpts I'd like to share that stuck out for me:

    "When you describe a world without doubt, you're no longer describing the world we live in. You're describing heaven - and we're not there yet. As long as we're bound by flesh and bones, we're stuck with doubt. As long as we're held by time and space, we'll have questions we can't answer."

    "Unless I doubt myself, I'll never be able to grow."

    "If I had no capacity to doubt, then I couldn't spot deception and test character."

    "Without the freedom to ask questions and weigh alternatives, scientific progress would be unthinkable."

    Oh, and there is much more where that came from. All I did was underline throughout this book. There was just so much to learn and glean from. It definitely isn't a quick read, so you won't be able to just skim through this book (and you won't want to). There is way too much information that you will just want to sit, ponder and ruminate on.

    This book helped me think and see things from a different point of view and perspective. I appreciated how Dr. Babcock interweaved biblical and personal references throughout this book. I will definitely be referring back to it from time to time. I highly recommend this book to everyone and anyone.

    I want to personally thank Mr. Aaron Dillon from Harvest House Publishers in sending me a complimentary copy of this book to review. I am very grateful to him and for the opportunity to review such a great book.
