Readers might be surprised that the great Mother Teresa wrote these words, addressed to Jesus, in the midst of a long and deep struggle with doubt.
Val’s style is uncomplicated and very accessible. She sets out first to explain the importance of doubt in every discipline. Without doubt and questioning, we would have no new knowledge or human progress. And yet so many in the church seem to fear it.
After introducing the concept, Val identifies some of those throughout Christian history who struggled to interpret the good news for their time. In this second edition, she has added another chapter of doubters, including many women.
If you have ever doubted, ever questioned inconsistencies or the implications of church doctrine, this is the book for you. Instead of seeing your questions as evil, you will receive permission to explore your Christian faith and be open to new and exciting possibilities. You may discover, as I did, that your faith becomes deeper and more substantial than ever before.
