Faith and Doubt with Philip Yancey

8 Jan

Earlier this week, I released a piece on how the disciples lacked faith in Jesus right up until His final words to them (Matthew 28:17).

I saw a post on doubting by Philip Yancey, and wanted to share it with my fellow doubters.  It is good to know that as someone who struggles with doubt, that I have good company.  Philip Yancey is the author of many books including:  The Jesus I Never Knew, What’s So Amazing About Grace? and Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference?  His books have garnered 13 Gold Medallion Awards from Christian publishers and booksellers.

My favorite line of the article is,

“Inquisitiveness and questioning are inevitable parts of the life of faith.  Where there is certainty there is no room for faith.”   

My world once ruled by a modernistic mindset contained little room for doubt, now I know that there is no faith without it.
