Publisher's Description

This heartfelt book recounts the author's personal struggles with doubt, uncertainty, and skepticism in the face of three consequential life experiences - the death of his parents, his life as a black American, and his lifelong preoccupation with the Nazi Holocaust. For Hubert Locke, as for many others who share his circumstances or sensitivities, these experiences have presented a serious challenge to conventional Christian teaching. They have forced him to reexamine Scripture, where he has ultimately - and beneficially - discovered a remarkable congeniality on the part of biblical writers with doubters and skeptics. "Doubt is not an act of unbelief," Locke writes. "In fact and ironically, doubt may be a supreme act of faith and devotion. If this is too much to claim, at least doubt and skepticism are stances that Scripture understands and for which the Bible has the utmost sympathy." "Searching for God in Godforsaken Times and Places" is a heart-cry by one person whose honest journey through life has earned him a special kind of spiritual peace, a person who has profound insights to offer others seeking to live Christianly in a confusing, contradictory world. Penetrating and sensitive, questioning and honest, this book is for believers and seekers alike who are looking for a meaningful, real discussion of life's duplicity.
