Summary

"Is there a God? How can I know? How can I know God? The search for faith can begin in many ways, but at its bottom dwells a hope or an openness to connect with something-with someone-bigger than us. But is that possible-and if so, how? Perhaps you're searching for a faith you've never had. Or perhaps you're trying to recover a faith you lost or hold onto a faith that seems to be slipping through your fingers. You can't help wondering, Is there something more, something authentic that satisfies both the mind and the heart? Finding Faith is not about what to believe but about how to believe. If you think having faith means turning your back on truth and intellectual integrity, these two companion volumes will speak to both your mind and your soul. A Search for What Makes Sense explores the rational side of faith with questions such as: Does it really matter what I believe? What is the relationship between faith and knowledge? Why are there so many religions? Do all paths lead to the same God? A Search for What Is Real affirms the side of you that longs to experience God. How might that happen? Can God be experienced through doubt? Why is church the last place I turn to connect with God? What if I lose interest? If you have intellectual and experiential questions about faith, then these honest, thoughtful, and challenging books are for you."
