Product Description

In a world that says faith is all about taking risks--leaping into uncharted territory and expecting everything to be okay--many Christians struggle with the concept of walking by faith. How can you have confidence in God and follow His will when everyone around you in placing so much emphasis on doubt and the unknown as the driving force of faith?

In Despite Doubt, Michael E. Wittmer reexamines this popular viewpoint and encourages you to get a clear understanding of your assurance in God and your salvation. Wittmer says, "Doubt is not the fuel of faith. Scripture repeatedly presents faith as our reliance upon what we know. Faith begins when we know the facts about God and His great salvation."

Author Bio

Editorial Reviews

"Mike Wittmer is to systematic theology what Carl Trueman is to historical theology: witty and full of (edifying) verve."

"Everybody doubts. Christians doubt. Atheists doubt. Scholars doubt; students doubt. Your pastor doubts and you doubt. Michael Wittmer takes this common phenomenon and shows us how our doubts can enrich our faith."

"If you’ve ever struggled with doubts about God, the Bible, or the reality of your personal faith (and who hasn’t?), this book is for you. Michael Wittmer fearlessly addresses these issues head-on, providing careful, honest, and gracious answers that make sense and give the reader a framework for a more confident and grounded faith."

"Michael Wittmer brilliantly helped me discover that while there is nothing wrong with doubt, there is everything right with faith. As I read from one chapter to the next, I found myself caught up in the undeniably profound wonders of the fully trustworthy God of the Bible. I 'of little faith'  realized my puny faith is okay, yet I will get to watch it grow as I daily experience the powerhouse truths of God's Word."

"I know from my own spiritual journey that misunderstanding doubt will trip you up. This is why I am happy to encourage you to read and digest Mike Wittmer’s very helpful Despite Doubt. He addresses the doubts of the mind and the heart and shows how they can coexist with robust faith. This book will greatly assist the conscientious Christian for whom honest wonderings can feel like unbelief. Let Wittmer lead you through your doubts to authentic belief."

"Rather than rebuke or discourage readers, Michael Wittmer has supplied them with help to realize they have ample reasons to believe the claims of Christ. Written in clear, non-technical terms and a conversational style, this book should dispel the doubts of many and strengthen the faith of those who already believe. It deserves careful attention from all who wrestle with problems of doubt."

    Ton of Truth

    The author is a seminary professor, and he has laid out this informative book in such a way that it can be easily read and understood. Written for believers who doubt--even a tiny bit--this study will strengthen faith.

    As a believer who sometimes questions how to know the will of God, I especially enjoyed chapters 18 and 19: "Command" and "Call." Here, the author uses life lessons to illustrate biblical truths. I've never before had the answer explained quite so clearly.

    This little book carries a ton of truth. I recommend it!

    The book includes three study questions for each of the twenty-three chapters that I think would be useful in a small group setting.

    Thank you to Anne Bauman at Discovery House Publishers for my copy.
