Publisher's Description

Doubt, faith, certainty. In this book celebrated theologian Anthony Thiselton provides clarity on these complicated, long-misunderstood theological concepts and the practical pastoral problems they raise for Christians. He reminds us that doubt is not always bad, faith can have different meanings in different circumstances, and certainty is fragile.

Drawing on his expertise in the fields of exegesis and hermeneutics, biblical studies, and the history of Christian thought, Thiselton works his way through the labyrinth of past definitions while offering better, more nuanced theological understandings of these three interrelated concepts. The result is a book that speaks profoundly to some of our deepest existential concerns.

Editorial Reviews

Steven L. Porter— Biola University
"At a time when many religious believers are clinging ever more tightly to their beliefs, Thiselton ably defends a positive place for doubt in Christian faith that looks forward to certainty. For Thiselton, doubt involves the humility to rethink one's position, consider viable alternatives, and thereby deepen one's faith while awaiting the certainty of the eschaton. Engaging an impressive array of contemporary and historical thinkers, Thiselton has provided rich material for serious reflection."
