Breaking the Idol of Certainty. Bestselling author counters the unbiblical notion that faith means lack of doubt, offering practical ways to live as disciples in a world of uncertainty. Influential theologian, pastor, and bestselling author Gregory Boyd invites readers to embrace a faith that doesn't strive for certainty, but rather for commitment in the midst of uncertainty. Boyd rejects the idea that a person's faith is as strong as it is certain. In fact, he makes the case that doubt can enhance faith and that seeking certainty is harming many in today's church. Readers who wrestle with their faith will welcome Boyd's message that experiencing a life-transforming relationship with Christ is possible, even with unresolved questions about the Bible, theology, and ethics. Boyd shares stories of his own painful journey, and stories of those to whom he has ministered, with a poignant honesty that will resonate with readers of all ages.
""Even when certainty is inaccessible, commitment remains an option." Greg Boyd is incapable of uninteresting thoughts. And this book is not merely thoughtful; it will be a tremendous help to doubters (and non-doubters) everywhere." --John Ortberg, author of "Who Is This Man?"; pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church
Every significant decision we make in life is shrouded in uncertainty. It"™s part of what it means to be a finite and fallen human being, and its arrogant, foolish, and idolatrous to pretend otherwise." --Gregory Boyd in this interview: http://jonathanmerritt.religionnews.com/2013/09/19/audacity-question-god-interview-greg-boyd/#sthash.23lif4Cf.dpuf
