When Faith Fails: finding God in the shadow of doubt

Disclaimer I was given a copy of this book for the purpose of review  I was not paid to write this review 


How do you deal with the hard questions about God, the church, and the Bible? Where can you find a safe place to openly and honestly wrestle with your faith without being criticized or judged? If you have ever struggled with doubt, you are not alone.

Writing with humor and candor out of his own experiences, and incorporating Scripture, literature, and accounts of others who have doubted, Dominic Done argues that not only is questioning normal, it is often a path toward a rich and vibrant faith. Whether your struggle is with tragedy, the difficult parts of the Bible, the intersection of science and faith, or even God’s silence, you can move through doubt into a deeper, fuller faith—a faith that doesn’t run from questions and the hard work of honest wrestling but instead embraces the mysteries of belief.



We all have our moments of doubt.  And most of us feel guilty when we do, but did you know when you doubt that is a great opportunity for growth?  Well only if you seek answers that is.  This book does just that, helps you find God even when you doubt him the most.  The best part is the author is relate-able.  i don't feel like I'm being shamed for my doubt, instead I feel like i'm being offered tools to deal with my doubt.
