In 2002, while touring North America with his wife in an RV, John Suk--lifelong Christian, longtime pastor, and noted leader in the Christian Reformed Church--experienced a crippling crisis of faith. He emerged from that dark time with a strange new gift--doubt.
In Not Sure: A Pastor's Journey from Faith to Doubt Suk takes readers on an eyes-wide-open, deeply personal voyage through the past and present of Christian belief, reexamining Christian faith--in his own life and in fifteen centuries of Christian history--through a skeptic's eyes. He exposes major pitfalls of modern Christian movements and questions what he considers to be faulty paradigms: the "personal relationship with Jesus," the "health-and-wealth gospel," and traditional ethnicity-based belief systems. In the end he is left clinging to what is for him a truer, wiser kind of faith in Jesus Christ--faith that struggles and lives with doubt.
