What if the most important word is the one in the middle?

We often think of doubt as the opposite of faith, but could it actually strengthen our relationship with God? According to John Ortberg, best-selling author and pastor, the very nature of faith requires the presence of uncertainty. In this refreshingly candid look at a life of faith, he traces the line between belief and unbelief: less a dividing line between hostile camps than a razor�s edge that runs through every soul. His findings point us toward the relief of being totally honest. Questions can expand our understanding, uncertainty can lead to trust, and honest faith can produce outrageous hope. Written from Ortberg�s own struggle with faith and doubt, this book will challenge, comfort, and inspire you with the truth that God wants all of us �including our doubts.

Is it possible to be a thinking person and be completely free of doubt? To believe without question? Explore the convictions that really matter, meet the gift of uncertainty, and learn to distinguish between good doubt and bad doubt.

Ortberg discusses the faith that hope delivers, a faith so strong and real that "I can let go and trust that Jesus will catch me."

John Ortberg is a pastor at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in Menlo Park, California. His is the bestselling author of many books. He and his wife, Nancy, have three children.
