Do you feel equally uncomfortable with closed-minded skepticism and closed-minded Christianity? If so, then The Myth of Certainty is the book for you. Daniel Taylor suggests a path to committed faith that is both consistent with the tradition of Christian orthodoxy and sensitive to the pluralism, relativism and complexity of our time. Taylor makes the case for the reflective, questioning Christian with both incisive analysis and lively storytelling. His brief fictional interludes provide an alternative way to explore key issues of belief and vividly depict the real-life dilemmas Christians often face. Taylor affirms a call to throw off the paralysis of uncertainty and to risk commitment to God without forfeiting the God-given gift of an inquiring mind. Throughout he demonstrates clearly how much the world and the church need people--maybe people like you--who are willing to ask tough questions.

From the Back Cover:

The Myth of Certainty is a book for reflective Christians -- those caught in the tension between secular thought and Christian faith. The author, Daniel Taylor, focuses his attention on the special problems confronting the person with an inquiring mind. He suggests a path of commitment that is both consistent with the tradition of Christian orthodoxy and sensitive to the complexity of our age. Professor Taylor has written this book because he wants to help people whose minds are awakening, and who do not yet know how to resolve all the questions and struggles they are experiencing. "Some of these people abandon their intellect and some just muddle along in life. I want to help them with reassurance that there is a way to put things together." Taylor's success at doing so can be seen in some of the reactions from people who have read The Myth of Certainty.

About the Author:

Taylor, Ph.D., is a professor of English at Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota. He has written several books.
