This is an outstanding book on the subject of Christian doubt, and every pastor should have and read a copy.

The author explores all the different kinds of doubt there can be, carefully distinguishing between doubts that are caused by false gospels (believing in a God that wants you to be rich etc., then disappointed when that god does not exist) and doubts which form in the mature Christian at times of stress etc.
He then goes onto exploring how the pastor, after working out the cause of the doubt, might go about helping the person out of the doubt.

Do not expect a quick and easy answer- this brilliant tome tackles the whole issue with such depth and seriousness you cannot fail to be moved to try harder to help your brothers and sisters in Christ who struggle.

5.0 out of 5 stars A taxonomy of doubt 16 Jan. 2012
By S. Marquardt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's been many years since I read this work, and I'm ordering another copy (lost in a flood). Although the book would doubtless be helpful to those weathering seasons of doubt -- or worse -- its real value is probably for pastors, counselors, or mentors who encounter people with doubts.

Os has it that doubt and faith are not antithetical; that would be faith and unbelief. Doubt is faith in crisis perhaps, but not its absence.

I think the most valuable thing about this book is the way it treats various kinds of doubt. This taxonomy leaves the reader understanding the importance of avoiding pat answers to doubt as if all doubt shared some common basis and solution. It's SO not so. Until one recognizes what species one's dealing with, it'd be better to just shut up and gather more data, than to try the helpful mode and botch things completely with the doubter.

Personally, I'd say that doubt is a form of suffering. Just as one doesn't give cliche answers to one in grief, it's immature and useless to see the doubter as merely a problem to fix. This book is for the "adults in the room."

Finally, I well recall a judgment I made about this book the first time I finished its last page. "This should be considered the standard work on doubt -- but it's even more about faith." If your personal epistemology is getting stale, this volume will open the windows. :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Two minds of doubt 20 Dec. 2001
By Kenny Bussard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read this book numerous times. It digs into the challenges we have as believers in Christ Jesus to remember and know that "God is God". Mr. Guinness points out that we have doubts for various reasons, but our position when we doubt should always be the same, let God be God. Mr. Guinness does not trivialize the doubts that we have, but that if we know that God truly has the best of intentions for our lives, we can preserver through these difficult times. If you can get the book it read it!
