Beyond Doubt : Faith-Building Devotions on Questions Christians Ask
Cornelius, Jr. Plantinga
From The Publisher:
From the pen of award-winning author Cornelius Plantinga Jr. comes this book of flesh-and-blood Christian meditations with a theological spine. Beyond Doubt unpacks the deep truths of the Christian faith by raising basic questions like these:
What is God like? Why pray? Male and female—how are we related? How do people see Jesus? What is the shape of the godly life? If the Lord is with us, why do we suffer? How do we face death?
Plantinga addresses such questions through short, vivid meditations, all written in the graceful, polished prose that he is celebrated for. Thoughtful and challenging throughout, the meditations each start with a Bible verse and end with a brief edifying prayer.
Building on the success of two earlier editions and now splendidly updated, Beyond Doubt is sure to inspire and encourage a wider readership, helping both new Christians and mature believers to grow in their faith.
At last! — a faith-building book that could spark life-changing discussions in churches and families, as well as formative reflections for those who read it alone. Beyond Doubt offers meditations with sudden turns and theological surprises deep enough for adults, yet with a clarity and plainness for youth — and all this with a freshness that is warmly inviting. The book’s effortless flow hides its eminently skillful craftsmanship. Cornelius Plantinga does much more than answer questions astutely; he also calms our fears, nurtures our longings for God, and strengthens our hopes in these tense times. The best theology is rooted in worship, and this book immerses us in prayer — and God!
I know no one more trustworthy in guiding us into important questions such as these. And Plantinga’s graceful style adds a layer of unexpected pleasure.
