Reviews

If you thought life before doubt was good, McLaren concludes, wait until you see where doubt can lead you and what doubt can teach you... Personal and gently convincing. --Kim Shippey, International journalist and former features Editor for The Christian Science Journal and Christian Science Sentinel There is a much healthier kind of doubt I suggest you consider... In his just-published book, Faith After Doubt, Brian McLaren made this affirmation. --Rev. Paul Graves, The Spokemsman Review

Faith After Doubt is deeply reassuring to anyone who questions their faith or the existence of God... His book teaches us not to fear doubt and how to embody faith after doubt, with suggestions for reflection and action. --Spitiruality&Health Religious folk often find the path of descent into doubt especially terrifying because they've been told their entire lives that they must accept certain understandings, beliefs, or dogma without question. In this important book, my friend and colleague Brian McLaren helps you find a deeper and wiser faith that is enriched by doubt instead of threatened by it. --Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM, founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation, author of The Universal Christ "In a culture in which the self-appointed gatekeepers of Christianity insist that faith equals certainty; belief is adherence to an exacting checklist of principles and politics; and belonging is an insular, exclusive membership, Brian McLaren is a heroic gate-crasher. In Faith After Doubt, he invites us into an honest, vital conversation about the pain and shame created by inherited certainty, and the powerful usefulness of thought and doubt. For all those who have understood that doubt and free thinking are failings of your faith, Brian's book will help you live fuller and breathe easier. He illuminates the reality that belief and doubt are not opposites, they are the twin sisters with whom any honest person of faith walks continuously." --Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of Love Warrior and Untamed, founder of Together Rising Brian McLaren gently moves us away from the notion of God as vengeful and petty, ready to punish those who question and challenge beliefs that no longer harmonize with their evolving experience and honest understanding. Brian encourages the reader embrace a deeper, wider, and more authentic faith that doesn't fear doubt, but welcomes it as an ally in their spiritual growth. This book will save lives. --Bishop Yvette Flunder, author of Where the Edge Gathers

In this smart rumination...for those wrestling with aspects of the Bible or their church culture that they don't agree with...McLaren's persuasive argument for doubt as a means to save one's spirituality and rescue religion at-large...will appeal to questioning Christians. --Publishers Weekly
