Overview

In this no-holds-barred book, Ruth Tucker tackles the tough questions about losing faith. She gives historical perspective by looking at prominent Christians who have struggled with faith. She grapples with difficult philosophical and theological issues. She explores the hard questions that bring people to the point of losing faith -- questions about suffering, science and more. And she sets forth the testimony of some who have made the choice to walk away and offers a glimpse into how and why they did. Ruth Tucker writes not just as a detached observer but as one who has struggled with doubt herself. She shares from her experience and tells us why she continues to choose faith.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Tucker (domestic missiology, Calvin Coll. Theological Seminary) has struggled with the intellectual and emotional causes of religious doubt in her own life. Here, she candidly shares the outcome of her struggles and offers case studies of other evangelicals to examine why people lose and rediscover faith. Excellent chapters explore the challenges of history, science, and philosophy, as well as psychological and social issues. In the case studies, people who are happy in their unbelief and people who have returned to faith tell their own stories. Tucker presents the unbelievers' points of view clearly and fairly. Her own responses and suggestions have depth and authenticity. This fascinating glimpse behind the careful facade of the educated fundamentalist provides real help and guidance to those in similar circumstances. Recommended for academic and public libraries. C.
