Some books about faith overwhelm you with complex theology and language. Some are so condescending that they turn you off. But that definitely isn’t the case with Finding Faith in a Skeptical World by Chet Galaska.

Finding Faith is a guide to what faith in God truly means. For the believer, it provides answers to questions they often feel inadequate to discuss. And for others, Finding Faith can help explain some of the most difficult concepts surrounding putting your faith in an all-knowing, all-powerful, loving God.

* Why doesn’t prayer always work?
* What is sin and why is it important?
* Why do bad things happen?
* How is the Bible relevant to me?
* Why are there so many different Christian churches?
* How are Christians expected to conduct themselves?
* Why doesn’t science prove there’s a God?

These and many more topics are discussed by a former atheist who became a Christian after several years of investigating the faith with an open mind. Christian churches should keep multiple copies on-hand and every Christian home will want to own a copy of a book that offers so much information in such an encouraging way.

An engaging and powerful book awaits you in Finding Faith in a Skeptical World by Chet Galaska.

    Not being Christian, I would still love to read this book to see what made the author go from Atheist to believer…it sounds very interesting.

  3. This sounds like such a good book and so interesting! I really like the cover, also. I am going to have to add this one to my list!

    amateurdelivre,
    Some of the most fascinating things I learned are about scientific discoveries regarding DNA and the universe that have convinced former skeptics that there must be a creator. Once we accept this, the question is, who is he and is he here now? This is where Christianity offers fundamental answers based on historical fact, and it make more sense than other religions. Basic faith isn’t mindblowingly complex, and it’s got nothing to do with the so-called “Christian” bad actors we see publicized. With all the distorted information I absorbed over the years, it was hard to igore it a truly open my mind. But I did, and it’s improved my life immensely.

    You can do it, too. And if you reach the same conclusions that I, and millions of other believers, did you’ll find it helps you, too.

    Dear April,
    Thanks for your comment. The book was fun to research because so many of the facts weren’t as I expected them to be. I’ve condensed them and made them readable so others could see the solid underpinnings for God and Christ. I also didn’t realize how unfairly the media presents Christianity and makes people wary of approaching it until I learned more.

    I see that skepticism tries to obstruct the hope and peace that faith offers, and the cover artist did a great job in capturing the sentiment.
