9780830737055: A Place for Skeptics: A Spiritual Journey for Those Who May Have Given Up on Church But Not on God

Have you given up on church but not on God?

If you, or someone you know, are reconsidering some of the larger questions of life, then this is the book for you. This thirty-day spiritual journey examines questions about God, the Bible, faith, and Jesus. A Place for Skeptics is written as a conversation, engaging Christian truth in a relevant, nonconfrontational style. Modern questions and doubts intersect with ancient confessions of the Christian faith in this provocative book of reflections about nurturing real faith.

From the Inside Flap:

In an age of religious fanaticism, an attitude of holy skepticism is no bad thing. This book stands in a fine tradition of radical Christian subversion—from Dante’s Divine Comedy to Bono’s spiritual quest—which has always sought to find and follow Jesus without kissing its brains good-bye. Wherever you’re at on the journey of faith, I recommend this book to you as if it were a wise old companion whose conversation is warm, occasionally surprising and continually seasoned with the ancient convictions of orthodox faith.

A Place for Skeptics is so much more than standard religious pabulum. It invites readers into their own doubts, challenging them to bring these to the heart of the spiritual journey. The authors’ meditations are highly accessible and stimulating, providing spiritual wisdom to anyone with the courage to own their questions.

A Place for Skeptics, a spiritual retreat between two covers, is where we can once again meet not only God but ourselves as well.
