Perhaps you never noticed the tabs across the top of the blog? (Take a look!) One tab is for “Faith and Doubt” and it features links to various resources: articles, quotes, books, web sites, sermons, etc. I thought I’d share it as a blog post today. Faith and doubt was initially the primary focus of my blog, but my content expanded over time.
*If you know someone struggling with faith and doubt, please consider sharing these resources with them. Maybe a certain resource could be a help to them.*
Faith and Doubt: My personal story and thoughts on the relationship of faith and doubt.
Links to quotes on faith and doubt: quotes, more quotes, and even more quotes.
If Bart Ehrman’s books have troubled you, please know that the “Ehrman Project” is a web site featuring videos by scholars who respectfully disagree with Ehrman and come to different conclusions. The videos are also on: youtube.
The book “Dealing with Doubt” by Gary Habermas is available free in its entirety electronically at this site.
Here is a worthwhile sermon from Pastor Greg Boyd on faith and doubt: Do you have the faith to doubt?
A personal psalm of lament and praise for the doubter.
Without Faith? Many areas of life require faith. Religion seems subjected to an unfair double standard.
Evidence does not produce faith: There seems to be mis-understanding on the relationship between evidence and faith, especially among believers who can sometimes “mis-use” apologetics.
A few books I suggest:
Rumors of Another World by Philip Yancey. A book review and then further related thoughts. Are you living in the borderlands of belief?
Faith & Doubt, by John Ortberg. Book review here.
In Two Minds, The dilemma of doubt & how to resolve it, by Os Guinness. I highly recommend this book, although I’ve not reviewed it on the blog. I might say it is *the best* book on faith and doubt.
Christianity for Modern Pagans – Pascal’s Pensees edited, outlined, and explained by theologian Peter Kreeft. Some thoughts here.
The Reason for God by Timothy Keller. Brief review here.
Walking Away from Faith (Unraveling the Mystery of Belief and Unbelief) by Ruth Tucker. I actually have a multi-part series where I blog through this book. First post HERE.
“A faith without some doubts is like a human body without any antibodies in it. People who blithely go through life too busy or indifferent to ask hard questions about why they believe as they do will find themselves defenseless against either the experience of tragedy or the probing questions of a smart skeptic. A person’s faith can collapse almost overnight if she has failed over the years to listen patiently to her own doubts, which should only be discarded after long reflection.” – Tim Keller
