We live in a skeptical age. People—especially young people—express doubts about Christian faith. In this thoughtful eight week study Bishop Scott Jones, author of The Wesleyan Way, partners with his son Rev. Arthur Jones, to address hard questions that all of us face when considering faith, religion, and the church. The questions include:

Can only one religion be true?
Why is there suffering and evil?
How can I believe in science and creation?
How can I believe in a God I can’t prove?
Can I trust the Old Testament?
Are marriage, sex, and family life religious issues?
Was Jesus' resurrection real?
Why do Christians disagree about so many things?

The message is strong and clear: Don't let your questions stop you from accepting God's invitation to faith. Engage your doubt, and you may find you are closer to God on the other side.

From the Author:

Authors Scott and Arthur Jones are father and son that address primary faith questions from unique perspectives.
Scott Jones is the Resident Bishop of the Great Plains area of the United Methodist Church.  He was formerly the McCreless Associate Professor of Evangelism at Perkins School of Theology, where he taught courses in evangelism and Wesley studies.
Arthur Jones is the founding pastor of The Well Plano, a congregation within St. Andrew UMC in Plano, TX.  He graduated from Duke Divinity school and has grown his congregation to an average attendance of 700 in less than three years.  His primary approach to questions has been in small groups with young adults for the last five years of ministry.
Together they bring together the history and ideas of the church to the questions of everyone that struggles with faith.  There are some questions that weren't answered in Sunday School.  Some questions weren't even asked.  Scott and Arthur do both.
