Although I blog on a variety of Christian issues, “faith and doubt” has become a primary focus. If concerns about faith and doubt have brought you here, several of my category sections [column on right side of blog] may interest you. Meanwhile, here are some links or other sources:
Faith and Doubt: My personal story and thoughts on the relationship of faith and doubt.
If Bart Ehrman’s books have troubled you, please know that the “Ehrman Project” is a web site featuring scholars who respectfully disagree with Ehrman and come to different conclusions. *Jan. 2014: This site is not working anymore – not sure if it is a temporary problem or permanent?* Regardless, the videos are also on youtube.
The book “Dealing with Doubt” by Gary Habermas is available free in its entirety electronically at this site.
Without Faith? Many areas of life require faith. Religion seems subjected to an unfair double standard.
Here is a worthwhile sermon from Pastor Greg Boyd on faith and doubt: Do you have the faith to doubt?
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.
I recommend checking out the blog of Credo House ministries called “Parchment and Pen”. They blog on a variety of Christian topics, but issues relating to faith and doubt are a frequent focus.
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
A few books I suggest:
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.
