Overview

If you, or your children, or your friends and relatives and neighbors have ever complained that faith is a misery, a pain, a burden, legalistic, divisive, cruel, a crutch, impractical, a myth, just part of your culture, unreal, anti-science, too heavenly minded to be any earthly use, dead, only about predicting the end of the world, only about deciding who's going to be saved or lost, all about condemnation and "Thou shalt not"... then this just might be the book for you (and for them). And if anyone's ever told you to stop asking questions... Questioning Faith eagerly invites you to ask away. In this book, the author sets out to show how questions "make the answers breathe," and how the Christian God is big enough to take anything we, or our children, friends and relatives and neighbors throw at him. We don't need to protect our faith (or our God) from society or from science. And we don't need to deprive ourselves of the joy of asking questions.
