If so, then The Myth of Certainty is for you. Daniel Taylor suggests a path to committed faith that is both consistent with the tradition of Christian orthodoxy and sensitive to the pluralism, complexity and relativism of our age. Taylor's insightful discussion of faith expounds Blaise Pascal's gentle command "We must know where to doubt, where to feel certain, where to submit".
The case for the questioning Christian is made with both incisive analysis and lively storytelling. Brief fictional interludes provide an alternate way of exploring topics at hand and depict the real-life dilemmas reflective Christians often face.
Taylor affirms a call to throw off the paralysis of uncertainty and to risk commitment to God without forfeiting the God-given gift of an inquiring mind. Throughout he demonstrates how much the world and the church need question askers.
